Sri Lankan Authorities Try to Root Out Rot

It’s not over

Militants linked to Easter suicide bombings opened fire and set off explosives during a raid by Sri Lankan security forces on a house in the country’s east, leaving behind a grisly discovery Saturday: 15 bodies, including six children.

The gun battle that began Friday night and the carnage that followed come amid widespread fear of more attacks as officials hunt for militants with explosives believed to still be at large after the coordinated bombings of churches and luxury hotels that killed more than 250 people last weekend.

Raids and police curfews have shut down areas of eastern Sri Lanka, and Catholic leaders have canceled Sunday Masses indefinitely. Officials also urged Muslims to stay home for prayers in an extraordinary call by the clergy to curtail worship.

It’s a shame that violent Muslims are denying Catholics their right to worship in peace.

    Islam has no sure hope of salvation outside jihad.

    That is why it produces so many radicals.

    It’s a shame that violence is perpetuated against any faith by any individual, or group, in furtherance of a sick agenda.

    The frequency appears to be increasing. Just yesterday a white nationalist by the name of John T. Earnest attacked a synagogue. He wrote a manifesto filled with racist rants and quotes from the Bible, and praises the suspects responsible for the New Zealand mosque and Pittsburgh synagogue shootings and adds they were his inspiration for the planned shooting in Poway.

    It is all part of the same liberal godlessness.

    Liberalism has made it OK to victimize Christians and Jews because liberals cannot even say the word “Christian” and liberal protect open anti-Semitism!

    Earnest confessed to an arson attack he made on a nearby Mosque too. From the sounds of it he hated Muslims and Jews. Sounds like your typical right wing white nationalist nut job.

    How exactly is this true, “It is all part of the same liberal godlessness” ?
