Taliban Blamed for Acid Attack on Afghan Schoolgirls
« on: November 14, 2008, 09:27:58 PM »
No students showed up at Mirwais Mena girls' school in the Taliban's spiritual birthplace the morning after it happened.

A day earlier, men on motorcycles attacked 15 girls and teachers with acid.

The men squirted the acid from water bottles onto three groups of students and teachers walking to school Wednesday, principal Mehmood Qaderi said. Some of the girls have burns only on their school uniforms but others will have scars on their faces.

One teenager still cannot open her eyes after being hit in the face with acid...

Such acts originate from the demons- they are inhuman.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

You know, I sometimes wonder, if these acts do originate from the demons, if they are a way of getting back at the Virgin Mary for her Holy Decision by attacking women and girls. Just a thought.... :(

Lord, have mercy on the victims.


What a bunch of barbarians.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
