    the seed of the church


    Blood and daggers. Iraq Christians and Muslims. The Pope and Sikh leader's 'Kirpans' (daggers).
    ...
    What in the world? Let's see. Sikh leaders carry sacred daggers, and are willing to forgo a meeting with the Pope since the security rules do not allow death implements at the meetings. I wonder what makes these daggers sacred to the supposed muslim religion of peace.
    ...
    Well, I really don't care what makes them sacred. I am amazed at the leaders though, in their obtuse view of muslim violence, so conditioned and proud to insist they must carry knives.
    ...
    ...
    Sikh leaders in the US have declined an invitation to attend an inter-faith event during Pope Benedict's first visit to the country next month because they would not be allowed to carry their 'Kirpans' due to security reasons.
    ...
    The US Secret Service insisted that Sikh leaders attending the meeting with Pope Benedict XVI would have to come without the ceremonial daggers as required by their faith, The Washington Post reported.
    ...
    "We have to respect the sanctity of the Kirpan, especially in such inter-religious gatherings. We cannot undermine the rights and freedoms of religion in the name of security.
    ...
    Sanctity of Kirpans. Give me a break!
    ...

    And then related by murder and death and abduction is another bloody story of Iraq's Archbishop kidnapping. and the murder last year of a Priest and Deacons.
    ...
    ...
    Last year, on the Feast of Pentecost, armed Muslims confronted Father Ragheed Ganni, a Chaldean Catholic priest, along with three of his sub-deacons, Basman Yousef Daud, Wahid Hanna Isho, and Gassan Isam Bidawed.. The priest and his deacons had just left the Sunday celebration of Holy Mass.
    ...
    These Islamic extremists forcibly insisted that these three Chaldean Catholic Clergymen convert to Islam or face death. The brave priest and three clerics chose fidelity to Christ instead. So, the armed extremists became executioners, killing them all after leading the sub-deacon Bidawed’s wife away.
    ...
    Perhaps there is a chance for the kornann to become a peaceful book. Where we Christians have the Old and the New Testament, perhaps they could separate all their violent text to the Odd Testament, and concentrate peacefully on the remains.
    ...
    As it is, it's all muddled together. Daggers, suicide murders, and hate.
