We need to pray for our Brothers and Sisters in Christ who live in India.
Hindu extremist groups are offering money, food and alcohol to anyone who murders Christians and destroys their homes.
The violence is nothing new in Orissa, India, where India's Communist Party estimates that more than 500 Christians have been killed by Hindu mobs in Orissa since late August, 12 times more than official government claims of only 40 homicides. However, now the stakes are even higher – and pastors have a bounty on their heads!
Rewards are being offered for murdering Christians, destroying homes, and churches. Oh yeah, and if you kill a Pastor you'll receive $250.
This is sick and twisted! Since it's unlikely that the U.N. or any other government body will step in to help, we need to use the most powerful tool at our disposal - prayer.
Let's also pray that those protesting the outcome of the Prop 8 ballot measure in California (and 26 other states) don't catch wind of this because we've already seen the true face of intolerance from them in response to this issue.
