A friend on Facebook recently posted this: ‘So another 1000 Christians die in Nigeria… Over the last 5 years or so, over 1000 Christian Churches have been attacked in Africa by radical Islamists. Here is just another. Why don’t we hear this in the news? Isn’t Australia meant to have free press? Is this not worth reporting?’

My heart is breaking over this. Why must people be so cruel? Why must they use their religious ideology to justify their actions? Why must they make innocent children, women and men suffer? What evil is this. What is this world coming to.
