Sectarian violence is so ugly. The scary result of this will be one more country that will use religious law and not Civil laws. I am saddened to say that we will see more violence and death on Care2. A lot more than we care to.

Why is it that all religions teach that theirs is the only way to peace and paradise ?.They all seem to preach that their way is the only way to prevent evil from overtaking the world and that those who kill and misbehave will receive just punishment from God when they die.Why then do these same people think that they are above just punishment for the evil they do in the name of their God.? These people are nothing but intolerant criminals they are evil in the extreme.If they believe what they preach why do they think that they alone will escape the punishment they subscribe for others ?

Isn't it absolutely insane for any religion, all of whom claim to be the true path to love and understanding, to attack physically the adherents of another? There is nothing God-like in such blasphemy. Believe what you will, allow others the same freedom. I just don't get what is so flipping hard to understand about that. I do get that men will be men meaning they will continue to try to exercise control over other men for their own purposes even when that includes incitement to violence. But that is men, not God. If God could shed tears I think She would do so over what has been done and is being done on this planet in His name.

"...witnesses reported that Christian youths at a roadblock south of Kaduna were pulling Muslims out of cars and killing them.

Boko Haram has previously justified attacks on churches by saying they were carried out in revenge for killings of Muslims in central Nigeria during earlier bouts of violence."

@ Gene --- If God could shed tears over the continued actions of humankind, I think there would a flood to cover the earth like no other.

"Boko Haram says it wants Islamic sharia law" and thats the problem.
