The Islamist group Boko Haram attacked churches and the police headquarters in the Nigerian town of Damaturu. The bombings and shootings claimed at least 63 lives.

From the article:
Quote
President Goodluck Jonathan was "greatly disturbed" by the attack, and said his government was working hard to bring those "determined to derail peace and stability in the country to book", according to a spokesman.

Where is the American Christian response to this? Where? Where?

I am rapidly becoming very disenchanted with the Orthodox Church---and the Roman Catholics are not far behind. Why has not the Pope said anything in these peoples' defense? Are we all going to stand around and watch while our brothers are murdered?

Here's even more bad news: Organ Theft From Ethiopia and Sudan Refugees Horrifies Authorities Most, if not all, of these refugees are Christians.

"New reports are claiming that African refugees from Ethiopia and Sudan are having their organs stolen by the same people who are taking them across the border to Israel."

What do you propose?  People speak out about the persecution all the time but the world seems not to care.  You want to occupy the white house lawn?
