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.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on the people of Nigeria and save them.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

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?
