    My mom is from there she certainly won't. Neither will Ireland. That one event ended the conflict.

    How in the world do you people get from a random act of kindness to blaming a religion for a bombing or beheading or some act of aggression centuries ago?

    Oh, now I see the Title of the thread and understand why.

    Carry on.

    Sorry but the queen of England is the head of the Anglican church. In that conflict you can't divorce religion and politics.

    You're entitled to your opinion but not your own facts.

    Christian Militia Could Wipe Out Central African Republic's Muslim Population, Says Human Rights Group

    Christian militia taking revenge on the Central African Republic's Muslim population could drive the entire Islamic group out of the country, a human rights group claimed earlier this week.

    The anti-balaka ("anti-machete") has increasingly fought back against the country's minority Muslim population since the Muslim Seleka rebel group antagonized the country's Christians.

    Militia fighters known as anti-balaka pose for a photograph in Mbakate village, Central African Republic on November 25, 2013.

    Human Rights Watch employees in the Central African Republic have claimed to have witnessed anti-balaka forces cutting "the throats of Muslim civilians, publicly lynching, mutilating, and setting their bodies on fire." It also reported attacks where the groups had cut off body parts or hacked Muslims to death.


    Now before you say, but they aren't real christians, they think they are and that is what matters.

    From the same article:

    HRW has said the type of language that the anti-balaka groups were using "suggests their intent is to eliminate Muslim residents from the Central African Republic." However, he added that so far the group has not used any religious language to try and justify its actions.

    Instead, they claim that they are responding to Seleka attacks that occurred after the group seized power in "March 2013, and carried out a campaign of executions, indiscriminate killings, village burnings, and rape that plunged the country into chaos and displaced nearly a quarter of the country's majority Christian population."

    Bouckaert said that regardless of motive, the anti-balaka were finding success at removing their former aggressors.

    "Whether the anti-balaka leaders are pursuing a deliberate policy of ethnic cleansing or exacting abusive collective punishment against the Muslim population, the end result is clear: the disappearance of longstanding Muslim communities," Bouckaert said.

    Not all Christians have aligned themselves with the anti-balaka.

    Father Fagba and his congregation in the town of Boali have opened the doors of their church as a sanctuary to hundreds of desperate Muslims.

    Nice cherry picking 96!

    To gatorcise's point most evangelical Christians don't consider Catholics to be Christians so they will certainly disown this group.

    The Lord's Resistance Army
    • The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) has been active since 1986, making it one of Africa’s oldest, most violent, and persistent armed groups. The LRA was formed in northern Uganda to fight against the Government of Uganda, and operated there from 1986 to 2006. At the height of the conflict, nearly two million people in northern Uganda were displaced.
    • Lacking public support, the LRA resorted to forcible recruitment to fill its ranks. A 2006 study funded by UNICEF estimated that at least 66,000 children and youth had been abducted by the LRA between 1986 and 2005. According to that study, most of these children were only held for a brief period of time and then released or escaped, but others were forced to become child soldiers or sex slaves and commit unspeakable acts.

    my point being is that there is no need to reach back to the crusades to show the evil side of christianity. There is enough examples in the 20th century.

    These people consider themselves to be christians and believe in a christian god. Even if it is not your brand of christianity. You can not discount what they believe.

    I believe the fact that he could easily cherry pick a horrible, violent, genocidal group who consider themselves Christians to point at was more or less the entire point of the exercise.

    Are you nuts? This is a terrible example.

    And to the point of this thread, my response is - cool.

    Dude, are you serious? Joseph Kony and the LRA are not Christian, no matter what they think they are.
    Well, no crap. You're on it for him though.
