Priest Killed, Church Burned at Music Festival for Muslim-Christian Tolerance

Tolerance: I do not think that word means what you think it means:

Catholic priests say they are living in fear after a clergyman was murdered on the final day of a music festival promoting religious tolerance.

Father Evaristus Mushi was shot dead by two men on motorcycles on the last day of the Sounds of Wisdom festival in Zanzibar and his death has prompted concern that religious tensions on the holiday island are increasing.

1 As a Catholic? I want to know if this priest was involved with the ceremonies? If so, any man, of cloth or not, who chooses to abide with evil, to consort with it, to attempt to qualify it, will eventually pay the price. I will pray for his soul, either way. It's just that I may have far less empathy if he chose the wrong path.

You can't fight for people who are fighting against you fighting for them. When people either start fighting for themselves in large numbers, or lose, I will know. The corruption people have created though equality, egalitarianism, multiculturalism and such makes it easy to disappear into this world... and live quite well, actually. Pick your poison, if too wine if fine but whiskey's quicker.

3 'The music festival promotes tolerance'. That's your problem, right there. I think Doom has it about right. Sal, not so much.

But he means what he says.

Folks, this is where I get off, I think. commenting here, while gratifying, has become tiring. The only thing I can compare it to is a subscription to Reader's Digest. Some good jokes, stories, and such, but, the Publishers Clearinghouse offers get to be like threats. Good luck, my friends. I will be spending more time on the campaign from here on in.
Going to miss you.

heh, heh, heh.

5 "Let's sing songs until they stop shooting us."
Really? That was your plan?

9 It takes two Baby, to make a peace with tolerance for each others religious views.
Like war if one side decides it doesn't want to fight anymore but the other side does then the war will be shorter and the side that decided to stop fighting will become dead.
Christian's may want tolerance but if Islam doesn't want tolerance then The Christian's are only committing suicide with their conscience clear because, Hey ya know, we tried.

10 Liberals protect wolves. They say they were here first. This gives them the right to eat sheep.
