Speaking of clinging to guns and religion...

Don't expect the mainstream media to report this story anytime soon (EWTN):

Evangelical Christians Attack Baghdad Catholic Parish During Mass; Dozens Slain
...er, no, wait; I made a mistake...

Islamic Militants Attack Baghdad Catholic Parish During Mass; Dozens Slain
Gunmen linked with al-Qaeda stormed a Catholic church in Baghdad during Mass on October 31.
“They entered the church with their weapons, wearing military uniforms,” said an 18-year-old who survived the attack. “They came into the prayer hall and immediately killed the priest.”
After the gunmen took the worshippers hostage, US troops and Iraqi police stormed the parish in a rescue attempt. One gunman detonated a suicide belt, and a shootout ensued, leaving 39 hostages and seven members of security forces dead.

The Islamic State of Iraq-- the Iraqi al-Qaeda affiliate-- said it was responsible for attacking what it called “the dirty place of the infidel which Iraqi Christians have long used as a base to fight Islam.”

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

  1. Amen. However, I actually saw his item reported on regular TV news last night, either on CTV or CBC ... I don't remember which channel I was watching. I was more shocked that they reported the item than what they were reporting about.
