ISIS Claims Responsibility For Attack On Christian Church Service In Pakistan, At Least 9 Killed, 56 Wounded

The suicide bombing on the Bethel Memorial Methodist Church happened in Quetta, Pakistan.

Though it receives very little coverage in the elitist media, the fact remains that Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world.

There is a consistent trend that shows Christian-majority countries are generally accepting of religious minorities, while Christians are often brutally oppressed when they are a minority – particularly in the Islamic-majority countries.

That is certainly the case in Pakistan, where Christians face the constant threat of violence and death.

Now, another horrifying example of the danger of being a Christian in Pakistan has occurred.

Suicide bombers targeted the Bethel Memorial Methodist Church in the Pakistani city of Quetta.

At least nine people are reported killed, with 56 wounded. The final death toll may rise.

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack.

As reported by Reuters, “Police guards stationed at the church entrance and on its roof killed one of the bombers but the second attacker detonated his explosives-filled vest outside its prayer hall just after Sunday services began in Quetta, capital of Baluchistan province, said Sarfraz Bugti, the provincial home minister. Baluchistan police chief Moazzam Jah said there were nearly 400 worshippers in the church for the pre-Christmas service. The death toll could have been much higher if the gunmen had forced their way into the sanctuary, he said.”

Additionally, “Jah said the venue – Bethel Memorial Methodist Church – was on high alert as Christian places of worship are often targeted by Islamist extremists over the Christmas season. “We killed one of them, and the other one exploded himself after police wounded him,” he said.”

This attack is a tragic reminder of the violence faced by Christians worldwide, something that deserves far more attention than it gets.

I wonder if our PM will “tear up” when he mentions this in his next Press conference.

He only cries for Muslims ,because he is scared of the consequences. Being a Muslim, he knows what the punishments for lack of loyalty would be. He talks against us, Canadians, and Christianity, but I wonder why he is not scared to betray Christians. May be if we brought back the Inquisition, he would be more favorable to the Christian world…..or may be not ,because now, we all are Infidels.The tragic situation we see ourselves in Canada, was inconceivable before this nit -wit Prime Minister and his paid for Media, and his degenerated political mob,inverted our charter of rights as… Read more »
