More young Christian women abducted, raped in Iraq
http://www.cathnews.com/news/610/62.php

Young Christian women are among the preferred targets of Iraq's growing abduction problem with many being raped and some committing suicide as a result of the shock, violence and shame they experience.

AsiaNews says that this is all happening in Baghdad where kidnapping has become a growth industry. Criminal gangs are lining their pockets as the number of victims grows and the line-ups at border posts grow even longer with people trying to flee the country.

Christians from any denominations, clergy or laity alike, are one of the preferred targets in the capital.

In Mosul on Monday, another priest was abducted, Fr Paulos Eskandar, from the Syrian Orthodox Church. A huge ransom has already been asked.

Sources in some communities of nuns in Baghdad have relayed other stories they witnessed. Last Sunday two young Christian women were abducted but under different circumstances: one at home as her helpless family could do nothing but watch; the other, at an open market where four armed men spirited her away in a car leaving behind a distraught mother.

3. Saddam never allowed the weird religious self cuttings either
in his secular government. His foreign minister was a Christian. Do you think the bushbots will ever realize and acknowledge the hell they sentenced the innocent Iraqis to under the W?

We yelled "not in our name" and they called us traitors. Now they see what their backing of W has done.

5. Mmmmm.....
....now let me see if I have the chronology of this correct:

Christian Right WingNuts vote for *

With their votes and the theft of Fla (2000) and Ohio's (2004), votes * steals Presidential election

* starts illegal war in Iraq in 2003.

Chaos that results from incompetently managed war now gets Christian women raped and killed.

I dunno, was this in Revelations???

9. No, they only want american women to stop having abortions
If you are a female worker in the Marianna Islands, for example, the GOP supports your employer's right to force you to have an abortion.

8. In Mosul? Multiethnic multireligious Mosul? Outrageous. I hope the
Kurds take control of Mosul for all the minorities sake.
