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.
Je condamne l'attaque barbare contre l'Église protestante de Hantoukoura dans le département de Foutouri qui a fait 14 morts et plusieurs blessés.
Je présente mes condoléances les plus attristées aux familles éplorées et souhaite prompt rétablissement aux blessés. RK

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.”
“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.
Rapper Lil Wayne Breaks the Silence on George Floyd’s Death
On May 29, 2020, Lil Wayne commented on the death of George Floyd.
The controversial death involved Minneapolis Police Department officer Derek Chauvin placing his knee on Floyd’s neck as he was handcuffed on the ground.
“I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. … And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge,” Wayne remarked during an IG Live chat with rapper Fat Joe.
Wayne added: “We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”
On top of that, the New Orleans rapper explained why he doesn’t always go public on these political issues.
“What else am I gonna do after that?” Wayne said to Fat Joe. “Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing. I’ll pray for ya.”
Wayne shared more of his thoughts regarding how people should process information during times of controversy.
“It’s actually learning about it,” Wayne commented. “What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we’re protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know. … We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain’t true.”
Wayne and Joe’s full discussion can be viewed below:
Riots have spread to other cities across the U.S., which included Minneapolis, where Floyd was killed. On May 29, Derek Chauvin received charges of murder and manslaughter in the killing of Floyd.
Derek Chauvin officially charged in death of #GeorgeFloyd with third-degree murder and manslaughter.
