Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn
in response to reader comment: wishful thinking

"Wouldn't it make sense for the different Christian denominations to evangelize Muslims throughout the world, and not just in Syria, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and the other places that are at least 50% Muslim by population?"

too bad muslims have the habit of greeting chrstian clerics with beheadings. What do you plan to do? surround them with a dozen bodyguards each?

It is an opportunity for Christians to show how they live, and show how they die. Harken back to Christmas, Susan, and one of the themes is "God is with us", which is an impossibility for the Muslim.

It's a page of the Christian handbook that has show up before. Regardless if you are talking about the period from Pentecost to Constantine, or Russia and the other lands that were, and are, prisoners under the hammer and sickle.

It wouldn't be a waste because those who see Christians being put to death will have a hard time getting around the observation that these are people who die for what they believe in.
