The terror war waged in Nigeria by Boko Haram illustrates how Christians — and moral people in general — are squeezed between the Scylla and Charybdis of Islam and liberalism:
Since 2014 the terrorist group has associated itself with ISIS and captured 300 schoolgirls in Borno State in Doeme’s diocese. More than 20,000 people — most of them Catholic — have been murdered by the group, and it has displaced over 2.2 million people. In August the group promised to it would be “booby-trapping and blowing up every church that we are able to reach, and killing all of those whom we find from the citizens of the cross.”
When the attacks started in 2014, Nigeria asked the United States for help against the terrorist organization, but no help was given. The Wall Street Journal noted that the United States keeps a drone base in the neighboring country of Chad and regularly conducts surveillance and gathers intelligence on Boko Haram.
Bishop Emmanuel Badejo of Oyo, Nigeria, commented, “The United States actually said it would help Nigeria with Boko Haram only if we modify our laws concerning homosexuality, family planning, and birth control.”
On one side, bloodthirsty savages who worship the Devil. On the other, self-righteous weenies who worship their degenerate ideology. Surrounded, Nigerian Christians have been relying on prayer.
