14 Christians Slaughtered at Church in Burkina Faso by Suspected Jihadist Groups

Published

Catholic Today reported 14 people were slaughtered at a Protestant church in the West African nation of Burkina Faso on Sunday, December 1, 2019.

President Roch Marc Christian Kabore condemned “the barbaric attack” in the town of Hantoukoura on Twitter. He said that numerous people were also wounded in this attack in the country’s eastern region.

Kabore offered his “deepest condolences to the bereaved families and wish a speedy recovery to the wounded.”

Islamic extremists have had a presence in Burkina Faso since 2015. Jihadists have assaulted police stations and churches in the country’s northern region.  They have also attacked the eastern parts of the country.

In November, gunmen who were allegedly part of an Islamic terror cell attacked a convoy with employees of a mining company in that region, leaving 37 people dead.

The U.S. State Department has advised against travel throughout the majority of Burkina Faso, claiming that terrorists may attack places of worship and other targets.

The church attack on Sunday targeted a congregation connected to the evangelical mission organization SIM. In response to an announcement from the governor in the region, people in Burkina Faso expressed their condolences and called on God, the government, and their compatriots to fight for justice on behalf of the victims.

“God is good, but he is also a God of justice as much he is good and patient as he will render justice to the height of the crime,” one commenter wrote. “Let us be vigilant and redoubled all efforts at all levels so as not to leave any fault to the enemy.”

Christian Today reported on a spate of church attacks that took place earlier this year in April and May.

“It’s not only the church … that has been attacked; all the values of tolerance, forgiveness, and love that have always led our country have been hurt,” declared Henri Yé, president of the Federation of Evangelical Churches and Missions in Burkina Faso, in an April 30 statement after the first attack. “The freedom of worship consecrated by our fundamental law [the Constitution] has been flouted.”

“In the face of blind hatred, let us ask God to give us the strength to spread love, which makes us the children of God,” said Yé in April. “The unity of the body of Christ and of the whole nation must be preserved at all costs.”

In an environment of politically correctness, such tragedies will likely get thrown under the rug due to the fact that the victims are Christian.

The multi-cultural industrial complex shames all Western traditions, while putting more regressive cultures on a pedestal.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
