Christians Burned Alive In Nigeria? The New Holocaust Ignored by the World (WARNING: Grisly Photo)

My friend Rick Darby of Reflecting Light sent me a photo he obtained from a French friend.  It shows a multitude of people who have been incinerated.  The source says these are Christians who were burned alive in their church by Muslims in Nigeria.

The French text reads: THIS IS WHAT THE ENTIRE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY SUPPRESSES ... it is absoutely necessary to know.
Media scandal / It is politically incorrect to show the fate dealt by the Islamists to Christians who refuse to submit ...

Christians burned alive in a church in Nigeria: a monstrous holocaust before international indifference.


Can anyone shed more light on this photo and the story behind it?

Blog Break

I am unusually busy this tax season, and the extra money is nice.  I have to figure out how to squirrel some of it away for fun stuff before my wife spends it all on bills.

I need a good case for my string bass.  They are not easy to find.

Obama's Dangerous Delusions Regarding Islam

Barack Obama is dangerously deluded.  At his big conference the other day to discuss dealing with extremism, he repeated one meme over and over:  the West is not at war with Islam.  Terrorists are not Islamic.  The day before, some woman in the State Department made the asinine observation that the root cause of terrorism is poverty and frustration over non-responsive governments.  "We can't kill our way out of this war," she opined.  Yep, just like we couldn't drill our way out of high gas prices, but we did anyway.

Here's a big tablespoon of reality, Barack.  Yes, we are at war with Islam -- their choice, not ours.  Terrorism is indeed Islamic.  All of these Muslims in ISIS, Al Qada, the Taliban and Boko Haram are merely obeying their holy scriptures.  They are literally carrying out the dictates of their prophet and following his example.  Muhammad too, was a terrorist and mass-murderer.  Obama is following the progressive dictum that says reality can be changed by refusing to acknowledge it.

As for the airhead in the State Department, Muslims don't cut off people's heads and burn them alive because they seek a new vocation.  Leave it to a bureaucrat to see every problem solvable by applying their favorite panacea.  Remember the huge tsunami of 2004 that savaged Indonesia Sri Lanka?  Some absurd progressive sent a large shipment of condoms to assist the victims.  Yes, when one has been trashed by a tsunami, one tends to get a bit randy.  His panacea to every problem:  free birth control.

An old saying applies here:  When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

Defending ISIS: Obama's Assault on Moral Clarity at the Prayer Breakfast #ISIS, #prayerbreakfast #Obama

The Cowardly King
Everyone has now heard about Obama's defense of ISIS's evil at the prayer breakfast in Washington two days ago.  Obama sought to create "moral equivalence" between mass murder committed by Islamists and that allegedly created by Christians during the Crusades and the Inquisition.

In a nutshell:  Per Obama, Christian civilization is no more moral than Islamic civilization [this is pure horse puckey, but let's assume for the sake of argument that Obama is right].  Other religions besides Islam have brutalized people in past times.  Therefore, we shouldn't get up on our "high horse."

Let's see if we can come up with some logical extensions of Obama's thinking:

1.  Since other religions have also done evil things in the past, we should feel no moral outrage against ISIS for mass murdering Christians, Kurds, Shiites, beheading helpless captives, and burning a captured pilot alive.

2.  We have inherited the ancient sins and the guilt of our ancestors, and because of this, are unworthy of moral outrage.  Therefore, we cannot take any actions to stop Islamic barbarism in the here and now.  We must accept our deaths, because it is ISIS's turn to murder people; it's only fair, after all.  With any luck we will meditate on our shameful guilt before the scimitar separates our heads from our necks.

3.  Because of point #2, Obama is off the hook for doing nothing substantive to stop ISIS, and may not be criticized for the failure, nor for cuddling up to the Muslim Brotherhood and other radical Islamic groups.

The fact is, Obama seeks to obliterate any sense of moral clarity in defeating Islamic extremism.  Without the clear sense that one's enemy is evil and his own cause is just, victory becomes more difficult to attain.  So, Obama hopes, we will do nothing instead.  The legendary "Fifth Column" is not only in our gates, but is occupying the White House.

Obama did not invent the leftist "moral equivalence" meme, but his words at the prayer breakfast last week were the epitome of this strategy, in all its disgusting falsity and destructiveness.  The left seeks to substitute moral ambivalence for moral clarity.  In the process, they weaken our will to survive evil.

Islamophobia is a Good Thing; or Reason No. 1386 Why We Should Hate Islam #IslamicAtrocities

I see the Muslim animals in the Middle East burned a Jordanian pilot alive.  They put him in a cage, drenched him with gasoline, and lit a fire under the cage.

Islam is so uber-evil, that it is impossible any longer to be shocked by what its followers do in the name of their fake god.

Nice try, ISIS, but I cannot hate you or your religion any more than I already do.

Superbowl Sunday, But Not For Me. Band Update.

I won't be watching much of the Super Bowl today, if any.  I must venture out to do taxes for some of my personal clients.  I don't really care much which team wins today -- they both represent very "progressive" areas.

At big band practice last Thursday, the band director was very encouraging, complimenting my bass playing and saying that "the bass is the most important instrument in the group."  Of course I always knew that.  However, I suspect he was exaggerating.  All those trumpets, trombones and saxophones count a little.  The drummer and guitar player add somewhat as well.

Of course, they were all giving me dirty looks after the director's comment.  I simply stuck my tongue out at them and turned up my volume.

Well one more cup of coffee and then I have to hit the door.  Have a great Sunday.
