    Uganda? martyred Christians? Isn't this the place that kill gays today? Um the pope must forget the way his Christians slaughtered many for refusing to covert. HUGE ass hypocrite, the same boys used by kings are the same boys used by priests. icon_rolleyes.gificon_twisted.gif


    Large crowds of Ugandans greeted Pope Francis on Saturday as he held a mass youth rally and honoured martyred Christians on his landmark trip to Africa, which he dubbed "the continent of hope".

    The 78-year-old pontiff was greeted by wild cheers and singing at a shrine to the martyrs at Namugongo, just outside the capital Kampala, that honours more than 40 Christians who were executed in the 19th century for refusing to recant their faith

    A total of 45 Catholics and Protestants, many of them youngsters working as royal pages, were executed by King Mwanga of Buganda -- a 19th century kingdom that was located in the south of present-day Uganda -- between 1885 and 1887.

    At issue was their refusal to comply with the king's sexual advances towards them and other young boys in the court.

    Editorial Reviews
    "I was pleasantly surprised by the honest, truthful exploration of some of the past horrors committed by Christians in the name of God. It is a good thing for us to be aware of our past religious history. So many non-Christians are quick to point out the terrible things Christians have done in the past when faced with the horrors being committed in their own cultures today. Prepare yourself now, understand what we have in our past in Christian history and be ready to respond." (Trisha Bleau T4J Library 2005-01-02) --(Trisha Bleau T4J Library 2005-01-02)

    "The Caner brothers, propelled into the forefront by their enlightening 2002 book, Unveiling Islam, have now written another helpful book. This one focuses on the Crusades and centers on a time period in history in which Christians killed both Muslims and Jews in God's name. The authors maintain that a gradual shift from the pacifism of the first Christians took place as the church became more and more obsessed and entangled with power, politics, and state. The Caners warn that vigilance is needed also today to see that the church's freedom is not impeded by the state."

    "An important evangelical work, Christian Jihad by Caner and Caner is a book bound to be of help in the process of clarifying one's views on religious violence. It is highly recommended." (Tony Richie Pneuma Review 2006-06-01) --1(Tony Richie Pneuma Review 2006-06-01)
    From the Back Cover
    For the Western world the word evokes images of mass slaughter, forced religious conversions, and crimes against humanity.

    But what most Christians forget is that jihad (holy war) also plays a major role in Christianity’s own dark history.

    In this explosive and controversial book, the Caner brothers—two former Muslims, now staunch evangelical professors—shine the light of truth on Christians killing in the name of their God.

    These award-winning authors examine the impact of Christian atrocities on modern personal, cultural, and even international relations, question popular views of just war, and challenge each of us to face our past and redeem our future.

    “The Caner brothers are on the cutting edge of the cultural dialogue.”

    As well as being massively hypocritical, the Roman Catholic Church is something of a death cult, not in an ISIS way, obviously, but it does have an unhealthy obsession with all things death: Churches and cathedrals with unburied bodies and bits of bodies all over the place - pretty sick really.

    Ergun Caner has been exposed as a lying fraud. And Emir, his brother, complicit in his lies. I don't think anyone should trust his word on anything.
