al-Qaeda Murders Christian For Preaching the Gospel

NOUAKCHOTT, Mauritania Al-Jazeera TV says Al-Qaida's North Africa branch has claimed responsibility for the killing of an American aid worker shot dead this week in Mauritania's capital.

The Arab satellite TV station said it had received an audio statement from al-Qaida of the Islamic Maghreb in which the group said 39-year-old Christopher Ervin Leggett was killed Tuesday for allegedly trying to convert Muslims to Christianity.

There's a little twist. al-Qaeda of the Islamic Maghreb later released a statement saying that it was not an official statement and warning the "imposters" not to use their "brand". It also asks "the bros" to disregard any new statements that don't come from al-Fajr.

The statement says nothing about that it was wrong to murder Mr. Leggett. If fact it doesn't deny they did it or condemn it in any way. It simply states there was no official announcement.

In fact its unlawful under Islamic Sharia law to preach to Muslims. The penalty being you know, death.

That's some religion of peace and tolerance eh?

Jesus Via Bible Gateway:

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Rest easy with the Lord Mr. Leggett. You are the true martyr and we have a pretty good idea whom "the deceiver" might be eh?

Hat Tip: Creeping Sharia.
