The derailing of Nigerian Christianity

Well, it seems that there is a darker side to African Christianity, a much darker side. Read these two articles here and here, on the complicity of Nigerian Anglican Archbishop Peter Akinola in the ongoing religious conflict between the professing 'Christian south' and the northern Muslim north.

Now, I am not trying to defend the Islamicists, who deserve to be punish and even executed for their crimes. But since when did two wrongs make one right? Instead of seeking justice, which is the correct thing to do, the Christian Association of Nigeria decided to make this into a tit-for-tat Crsuade vs. Jihad religious war! So the terrorists massacre Christians, rape women, and burn down churches and homes, and in retaliation, these 'christians' massacre Muslims, rape women and burn down mosques and homes? Nobody is asking them to roll over and play dead like the useless effeminate governments of the West, but such an action is not only not Christian, but is in fact satanically inspired. These people who murder using the name of Christ will face God and His wrath unless they repent, together with their Islamist counterparts!

Oh, and so much for all the hype about vibrant African Christianity ...
