this is barbaric and this organization is truly the gangrene of humanity, and as such it should cast out and burn in hell for thousands of eons

I'm sorry the story will not pull up for me but the title speaks enough and I was able to access the other story of the one posted in your first comment. On that thread I had placed these words:

Salesians do such good work all over the world but this treacherous and out of control terrorist group that no longer deserves the handle 'human" to them, they have morphed into monsters. I'm sure it was not lost on him that he was being crucified on the same day as his Lord and within that I hope he found a measure of comfort despite the horrendous pain he was experiencing. Also my thoughts go to families who loved him to the employees also killed and the Nuns that was mentioned in the video as they died as well.

Thank You Apolonia . and i'm sorry but , there you have it again. if it wasn't for religion that good man would probably lived a long and productive life . if there wasn't such a thing as religion there would be no wars , killing just a general disgust with other people because they believe differently than you do . and i don't really care what your crutch is .if you need that crutch to help you live then i do feel sorry for you .

Very sad. Not all religions behave like this Islamic death cult. As Dandelion says, Silesians do great work.
Thanks Apalonia.

There seems to be no bottom to their depravity. I'm scratching my brain trying to think of a war that was fought over religion other than the crusades and ISIS's current war on the West. Thanks, Apolonia.

It is extremely important to note that Islam has its own definition of what Peace means. They define it as the time when all the world is Islamic. By their definition, they are a religion of peace, but certainly not by our definition! All wars begin with words and corruption of Truth.

We must learn as Christians, to educate ourselves more deeply so we understand all that is happening about us.

A story which highlights the two sides of humanity - darkness and light.

Never lose faith in goodness. Evil may have its day, but it always destroys itself in the end.

There's NO FEAR!.... Just disgust, anger, grief and sense of powerlessness against horrific terror. Terrorists are still insolent and unpunished . So whole civilised WORLD should stand in solidarity against them.

I don't know how civilized it is to stand against someone - including yourself :)
Terror could be also come from the knowledge of emptiness within our existence.
- sorry. I'm still not here :)

This terror is controlled by politicians, and inspired and instigated by many imams. It has nothing to do with "existential emptiness" nor any existential issues.

It is very civilized to stand against terrorists to keep them out of civilization and protect the innocents of the civilized nations, otherwise everywhere would be overrun by these armed cavemen who are millinium behind us.

Very sad and tragic and one more example, as if we needed more, of what happens when twisted egoism comes into contact with Religion.

Terrorists usually are not religious. They only use religion to their own goals... So they abuse religion, making its enemies and instigate religious wars.

I didn't say religious men Darren. I said cavemen. Whatever their reasons or religion doesn't matter. It is not worth putting our lives and freedom, so hard fought for at risk. But why does that matter to you. You didn't have to fight for it. I don't want mass muslims where I live and terrorists sneaking in with them to boot. Here we go with the same old muslim-allah- lover discussions. I'm tired of this same old discussuion about my safety and this accusing egoism kick you are on. Maybe you are safe around them but women and children aren't. It's common sense. .

Apalonia. I'm not sure I agree with your last comment.
Why do these creatures always shout " Allahu Akbar " before they blow themselves and thousands of others to smithereens?

It's not a religion. Its a cult.

Egoism shouts anything to be heard. Haven't you figured that out yet?

How do I explain here but you cannot believe everything you read in the 'controlled' news media who are deliberately pitting one religion against the other to cause World chaos. Get your news from alternative news sources not all those owned by the same Corporations.

Apolonia P (392)

Do you suggest that is owned by any corporation? It isn't the only source which informed about that crime. Look at syriafreemedia - they informed at first.

I heard too that fr Tom is alive!!! It would be a miracle, because he was tortured and tormented. But miracles happen sometimes... Let's pray for him...

Yes I heard that too. I hardly think it can be an act of mercy, I'm guessing a ransom must have been paid.

It would be great if it is true !!! Let's hope...

"Father Tom is safe and efforts are on for his release as early as possible," Topno said, conveying the minister's words, adding that the "government will facilitate the priest's safe return to India."

Uzhunnalil was kidnapped back in March after Islamic extremists raided a Missionaries of Charity-run retirement home in Aden, Yemen, where they killed 16 people, including four nuns.

Initial reports that the Catholic priest had been killed stem from a statement made by the Archbishop of Vienna, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, but other Church officials, including Bishop Paul Hinder of Southern Arabia, said that there are "strong indications that Fr. Tom is still alive in the hands of the kidnappers."

"Cardinal Schönborn has already corrected his statement which he had made on the basis of the wrong statement of Archbishop Moras in Bangalore. Certain media in India are too nervous and curious and not aware that they are playing with the life of Fr. Tom. I cannot say more for the reason I gave in my first sentence (to protect the life of Fr. Tom),"

Great news! Fr Tom will be released probably by ransom, or exchanged for another prisoners. Let's pry for him! He was tortured and tormented.
