Shocker of The Week

The persecution of Christians in Nigeria has reached terrifying proportions:

Compass Direct reports one such incident on 21 March when a teacher at the Government Secondary School of Gandu in the northern state of Gombe, was preparing to supervise an exam. As an anti-cheating procedure, she collected the students' bags before the exam and put them at the front of the classroom. One girl then cried out that because a Christian had handled her bag, the Quran in it had been desecrated. Muslims rushed into the school, stoning the building and the staff, dragging the teacher out and clubbing her to death.
Call me an Islamophobe if you wish, but some people really need to attend anger management classes.
