While I was smoking my Christmas turkey for my family…and looking forward to another blessed Christmas Day, I was tipped to the news that during Christmas Day services in Nigeria, Muslims have attacked, murdered, and burned Christian Churches.
From the story: “An explosion ripped through a church during Christmas services near Nigeria’s capital Sunday, killing at least 25 people, officials said. A second explosion later went off near another church in the restive city of Jos, raising fears that a radical Muslim sect was to blame.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blasts, but the explosions come amid a wave of attacks in Nigeria by Boko Haram, which has been blamed for at least 465 killings this year alone. Last year a series of Christmas Eve bombings in Jos that were claimed by the militants left at least 32 dead and 74 wounded.
The first explosion on Sunday struck St. Theresa Catholic Church in Madalla, a town in Niger state close to the capital, Abuja, authorities said. Rescue workers recovered at least 25 bodies from the church and officials continued to tally those wounded in various hospitals.”
I have been right here where these things happened today.
