    Now let us wait for the Prime Minister of New Zealand to condemn this atrocity whilst wearing a Crucifix and the rest of our world leaders to show there outrage and outpouring of grief whilst they are remembering the dead and injured stuck down while at prayer on one of the holiest days in the Christian calendar. And of course the candlelit vigiles of the worlds mourners coming together in grief at the senselessness of this deliberate targeting of innocent Christians at prayer. 


    "COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — Multiple explosions at churches and hotels around Sri Lanka on Sunday killed more than 140 people and injured many more, according to local news reports.
    The sites included three churches convened for Easter Mass and three high-end hotels in Colombo, the capital.
    According to Dr. Kumara Wickramasinghe, deputy director general of the National Hospital of Sri Lanka, as of early Sunday afternoon there were 62 dead and more than 100 injured in Negombo, 52 dead and almost 300 injured in Colombo, and 27 dead and almost 70 injured in Batticaloa".

    Hypocrisy does get to me I will admit. Especially your own and keith prossers. You are both the two biggest hypocritical bigots on this forum.

    It is open season on Christians for you both when it comes to the New Testament & Christians. But you scream and cry and complain and call others bigot and racists and "islamophobes" when anyone mentions Islam or muslims. Your are bigoted hypocrite that makes me sick.

    What am I bigoted against, besides ignorant stupidity?
    Especially those who blame 1.5 billion people for the actions of a few thousand or even one person.

    And who has done that? I would like to see your evidence for that ridiculous claim. 

    What am I bigoted against,

    Christians and Christianity. Do you not understand the meaning of the word bigot?

    Here you go:

    bigot
    /ˈbɪɡət/
    noun

    1. a person who is intolerant towards those holding different opinions.

    Gallup poll collected extensive data in a project called "Who Speaks for Islam?". John Esposito and Dalia Mogahed present data relevant to Islamic views on peace, and more, in their book Who Speaks for Islam? The book reports Gallup poll data from random samples in over 35 countries using Gallup's various research techniques (e.g. pairing male and female interviewers, testing the questions beforehand, communicating with local leaders when approval is necessary, travelling by foot if that is the only way to reach a region, etc.) 
    There was a great deal of data. It suggests, firstly, that individuals who dislike America and consider the September 11 attacks to be "perfectly justified" form a statistically distinct group, with much more extreme views. The authors call this 7% of Muslims "Politically Radicalized".They chose that title "because of their radical political orientation" and clarify "we are not saying that all in this group commit acts of violence. However, those with extremist views are a potential source for recruitment or support for terrorist groups." The data also indicates that poverty is not simply to blame for the comparatively radical views of this 7% of Muslims, who tend to be better educated than moderates.
    The authors say that, contrary to what the media may indicate, most Muslims believe that the September 11 attacks cannot actually be justified at all. The authors called this 55% of Muslims "Moderates". Included in that category were an additional 12% who said the attacks almost cannot be justified at all (thus 67% of Muslims were classified as Moderates). 26% of Muslims were neither moderates nor radicals, leaving the remaining 7% called "Politically Radicalized". Esposito and Mogahed explain that the labels should not be taken as being perfectly definitive. Because there may be individuals who would generally not be considered radical, although they believe the attacks were justified, or vice versa.


    105,000,000= 7% of 1.5 Billion.
    That's not just a few nutjobs like the 3000 KKK members in the USA.

    "Who Speaks for Islam?". John Esposito and Dalia Mogahed

    And your post will be totally ignored. Probably because it contains well researched facts by two very worthy academics. Facts are something apologist for Islam have a very extreme aversion to.
    Dalia Mogahed is an American scholar of Egyptian origin. She is the Director of Research at the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding in Washington, D.C.  She chaired the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies from 2006 to 2012, which conducted research and statistics on Muslims ...

    John Louis Esposito is University Professor, Professor of Religion & International Affairs and Islamic Studies at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. He was also the Founding Director of the Prince Alwaleed Center for Muslim–Christian Understanding at Georgetown.

    No matter how hard I have looked, i still haven't found a photo or video of  New Zealand Prime Minister JACINDA ARDERN standing shoulder to shoulder in solidarity with the local Bishop of Christchurch. She has though issued  a formal statement in writing saying 


     “New Zealand condemns all acts of terrorism, and our resolve has only been strengthened by the attack on our soil on the 15th of March. To see an attack in Sri Lanka while people were in churches and at hotels is devastating,” she said in a written statement.
    “New Zealand rejects all forms of extremism and stands for freedom of religion and the right to worship safely. Collectively we must find the will and the answers to end such violence.”

     Maybe she will  issue a more direct statement when more is known about those responsible for this attack and their reasons behind it.
