    This story is another graphic illustration of the fact that Christians are being martyred; also happening in Syria, Egypt, England, Africa and other places - it will be here before we know it. Our World is being enveloped in darkness and evil - - Many of us are apathetic and under the self imposed delusion that 'all is well.'

    We must stand up and shake off our narcissism and wake from our self induced coma!

    Scripture tells us that our redemption as a people, must come through individually falling on our knees with humble repentance, cast ourselves upon the effectiveness of His Salvation, and become genuine instruments of real Christianity who then continually engage life using wisdom, courage, truth, and love as our weapons.

    Otherwise we are in a calamitous situation and stand to lose not only our precious Country -- with all the wonderful rights/freedoms granted to us by God and recorded in the Bill of Rights -but our light of Freedom and hope will go dark and the World as we knew it will no longer exist.

    May God forgive us and grant us transforming Salvation

    He died a martyr.

    And his death will cause many conversions in Syria.

    This one article is sufficient for me to turn my opinion against the Syrian Rebels, who, it seems, has conclusively won the support of almost the entire world, have begun to show their true colours. The world, while still having clear and evident signs of Al Qaeda support behind the Syrian Rebels, will pay for their support of this group.

    I had taken an almost neutral view of both the Syrian Rebels and the Pro-Assad group, however this article, till the time that the pro-Assad group does not follow this macabre path, has helped form my opinion, clearly against the Syrian Rebels.

    It is no wonder then, that inspite of clear and prevalent support that the Syrian Rebels have received from outside Syria, they have been losing most gains made by them till now, especially strategic gains, which has strengthened the Pro-Assad group greatly! I would have to presume that with the world against the Pro-Assad group, to have made such great progress, after their initial defeats, could not have been possible without GOD's help. This gruesome and satanic act of beheading this Catholic Priest, will henceforth only cause the complete downfall and destruction of the Syrian Rebels, afterall, even if you have the entire world to support you, if GOD does not support, all effort is futile!

    Arise O GOD, may these people realize the gravity of such acts and may YOUR actions put fear and trembling in such people who fancy such cruelties!

    I wonder if one of the reasons why President Obama apparently refuses to tell the American public about the military aid he is giving to Syrian rebels is because he is aiding murderers like these Islamists who beheaded Father Murad Fran├žois.

    I cannot watch the footage; however, this should be front page news on all mainstream media but unfortunately will not. Christians are persecuted in Muslim countries yet the extent is covered up.
    May God protect those in dangerous lands and help us all to uphold Christian love.
