Muslim ‘warriors’ threaten harm if Catholic bishop does not convert to IslamManila, Jul 24, 2008 / 02:37 am (CNA).- A Catholic bishop in the southern Philippines’ Basilan province has received a letter from self-described “Muslim warriors†possibly linked to Abu Sayyaf who are threatening him with harm if he does not convert to Islam or pay “Islamic taxes.†Further, authorities are seeking the return of three adults and two children, all Catholics, who were kidnapped in the same area this week.On July 19 Bishop Martin Jumoad of Isabela sent a copy of the threatening letter to Church-run Radio Veritas in Quezon City, UCA News reports. Bishop Jumoad told UCA News that a student at Claret College in Isabela was told to give the letter to the school secretary who could pass it along to the bishop.The writers of the letter claimed to be Muslim warriors who don't follow any laws other than the Qur'an. They say the bishop should convert to Islam or pay the Islamic tax, called a jizya, to their group in exchange for protecting him in the place of Muslims.If the bishop refuses, the letter threatened, force, weapons or war may be used against him. Citing bombings in other Philippines cities, the letter said he should not feel safe even if protected by soldiers.>>Read full story

Thank You for the Report, It is a call to prayer for this bishop and really all Christians throughout the whole World. It is like some great evil that has come upon us. We must pray especially for those who are perpetuating these atrocities thinking that they are following the Will of God. They are blind. Only if they are granted many Graces maybe their hardened hearts will open to embrace the Love of Jesus Christ. The Lord may open their hearts if we pray and sacrifice, and lead a Good Life. May the Lord Keep You Safe in His Scared Heart, Blues Topic New Topic Reply to Topic Printer Friendly
