Yes OR No? Should The American Church Respond To The Slaughter In The Central African Republic
After listening to Morning Edition’s report on this today, I was struck that the American CHURCH (not government of citizens) has been silent.
Thousands of Muslims have been fleeing the capital of Central African Republic following vicious revenge attacks by Christians. The United Nations calls it “ethnic religious cleansing.” French and African peacekeepers have mostly failed to stop the violence.

Well the Church is the cause of the problem, they perhaps should leave.
Christians make up half the population and Muslims 15 percent, according to the CIA World Factbook. As many Christians have sedentary lifestyles and many Muslims are nomadic, claims to the land were yet another dimension of the conflict.
On 13 December 2013, the UNHCR stated 610 people had been killed in the sectarian violence. Nearly 1 million people, a quarter of the population, were displaced. Anti-balaka Christian militiamen were targeting Bangui’s Muslim neighborhoods and Muslim ethnic groups such as the Fula people.
Hi Rick, how you be my friend? That may or may not be a valid point. The Christians there say they are retaliating against what occurred during the coup. That said, my question is more toward what should the Church in America be concerned enough about to respond to.
