    Paganism is an utter darkness although pagans do not hate what is good knowingly like the Western secularists do. This incident is a typical of pagan mentality which is same as secularism – to erase off those are deemed as unwanted humans or disgraced humans. That’s why Non-christian mankind has no problem killing the unwanted children in wombs everywhere on earth. Christianity alone cherishes everyone’s life and protects everyone, reaching the lost souls with the life-giving Gospel and conducting God’s love and judicial justice at the same time. The Japanese Christians suffered the heaviest persecution for more than 300 years, and the Japanese people need Jesus for salvation.

  • I’ve been told that this site tries to focus on US news which is why a French Catholic priest murdered while celebrating Mass was ignored yesterday. Apparently Japan is more important than France and the lives of handicapped people are more important than Catholic lives. Hypocrites.
