Muslims Attack Christians While At Prayer Service, Beat Them Savagely With Sticks, Rape 15 Women And The Media Then Tries To Cover It Up And Blame The Christians

There is a lot of talk about “fake news” going around today about Islam when the opposite is true. People are learning about and have easy access to the truth of what is really going on, and that makes those who do evil panic and try to devise further ways to deceive people.

Several weeks ago, we reported how Muslims attacked a Christian church during services in Uganda. They locked the Christians in the church and then attacked them, raping 15 women, kidnapping several and beating the rest. The story made international headlines.

Well in a recent story, the local news media in Uganda has tried to whitewash what happened, saying that it was a ‘mania’ that broke out after Christians praying for the return of an ‘unnamed prophet’ got mad when the supposed ‘prophet’ did not appear.

In the meantime, Christians in the area have continued to receive threats from the Muslims, and the local pastors are reporting seeing Muslims at night walking close to the church where the attack happened while brandishing weapons. There is a great fear that another attack is in the making:

A regional church leader convened an emergency meeting of pastors in eastern Uganda on Friday (Feb. 10) to refute what he called a false news story aimed at covering up a Muslim assault on a prayer meeting.

The Rev. Moses Mukenye, who oversees nine churches in the Bukedi diocese in eastern Uganda, told 45 pastors that a Jan. 19 news story by Kampala-based newspaper the Daily Monitor was “false and a fabrication.” A Morning Star News source attended the meeting.

Mukenye said that as a result of the Monitor’s false news, he had received calls from Kenya, the United Kingdom, the United States and Kampala, Uganda’s capital, questioning the facts of a Jan. 15, Islamist attack on a Katira Church of Uganda prayer meeting that led to the disappearance of a pastor and eight others.

Mukenye said a Jan. 29 Morning Star News report accurately detailed how a Muslim mob, upset by conversions to Christianity and armed with clubs and sticks, attacked the Katira Church of Uganda meeting, locked many congregation members in, beat them and raped 15 women.

The church is located in Budaka District, Iki-Iki Sub-County. When word of the Monitor story first reached Mukenye and other church leaders, they thought it may have referred to a separate incident, as there are three Church of Uganda congregations in the Katira area: Katira Church of Uganda, Kekerene Church of Uganda and Kadatumi Church of Uganda. Mukenye serves as pastor of the Iki-iki parish Church of Uganda and oversees eight other churches in Bukedi diocese.

Gradually church leaders came to realize the Monitor story was giving a false account of the Jan. 15 attack, Mukenye said. The story claimed that a throng of residents “from neighboring villages and sub-counties” had gathered after midnight to watch “born-again believers” at a Katira Church of Uganda event await the return of an unnamed prophet, and that they became violently angry at having waited so long in the cold when the alleged prophesy proved false.

“On realizing that they had been hoodwinked, the mammoth gathering turned rowdy and some people started pelting stones at the believers that destroyed windows and doors as well as the roof,” the Monitor reported, adding that Christian leaders were severely beaten. The story quoted a regional police official who asserted that the event “organizers have to take the blame for making false” prophesies.

Besides the regional police spokesman’s account in the Monitor story, the Uganda Police Force through its Twitter account asserted that the Morning Star News report was false in response to questions voiced on social media about the incident. Religious rights advocates say officials in areas of sectarian conflict commonly deny or downplay religiously motivated assaults in order to cool simmering tensions.

Such tensions did flare following the Jan. 15 attack, with Christians threatening to retaliate the following day. Mukenye, Muslims and local officials convened a meeting on Jan. 22 to quell passions, with the pastor persuading church members to forgive the assailants rather than retaliate.

An area police official attended the Jan. 22 meeting and did not dispute Mukenye’s account of the attack, but he has since been unavailable for comment. Mukenye said Morning Star News correctly reported that approximately 90 Muslims broke into the evening prayer meeting of Katira Church of Uganda at about 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 15 and beat them with clubs and sticks. At least one assailant was overheard saying, “Away with the pastor who is converting our Muslims to Christianity.”

At Friday’s (Feb. 10) meeting, the 45 diocese church leaders refused to allow a Muslim journalist to attend, accusing him of misreporting the Jan. 15 attack and acting as a spy for Islamic extremists, Mukenye said.

Morning Star News attempts to reach Daily Monitor representatives for comment on Mukenye’s accusation of false news were unsuccessful.

Mukenye said that, of those missing since the attack, only one, Patrick Mbayo, has been found.

“I feared to return to my house after the attack, because I had been receiving threatening messages in my telephone accusing me of trying to win Muslims to Christianity,” Mbayo told the gathering of Christian leaders on Friday. “Hence I feared for my life, and after two days back in my house, someone dropped an anonymous letter threating to kill me.”

Mukenye said the threat against Mbayo had been reported to police. He told Morning Star News that Katira church members are still living in great fear and that their lives are in danger.

“During the night time, some unknown people are moving around with dangerous weapons like swords and metallic objects who are suspected to be the same people who attacked the Katira church,” Mukenye said. (source)

In today’s age when there is instant news and communication between people, integrity in reporting is very important. At the same time, it has also opened up many people’s eyes to the reality of what is happening around them, which is the great battle between good and evil and not the false fronts erected to obscure the reality of what is happening.

As with everything in life, ask questions. Do your own research. Cross-reference what you find. Admit when you are right as well as when you are wrong. For as we here at know well from our own in-depth and extensive research into the events of today, the truth is far more amazing than any fiction, and that is why certain people do not want to see it- because they refuse to handle it.

    It is hard to handle becasue were all flawed, I think a lot of us the first thing we did when we woke up was feel gross for being human, flawed, sinful, and struggled with it, People who like to accuse Christians of thinking they are perfect have it completely backwards.. it’s a constant struggle of falling down and getting back up and knowing more than anything that you are far from being perfect and probably don’t deserve being saved, That’s probably what they are avoiding.

  • Grandmere

    Andrew needs to go. I will no longer be viewing his articles. He’s had several chances now and is still unreliable.

    • Why? World Net Daily and others fell for the same trap. It wasn’t easy to detect it since the source Andrew used wasn’t all that unreliable (Morning Star News). I happen to trace it all the way to the original source and it literally took hours. He saw the story on Morning Star News and they do not show their source. This type of thing happens to every reliable media with no exception. I have fallen into a couple of traps before. But I retract it as soon as I realize it. The Right Scoop (very reliable) wanted to post the story and contacted us on it and after I researched it I told them not to. It takes much homework at times to look for primary sources. I spoke to Andrew and told him to stay away from any miracles whether true or not. Do you have other examples of negligence?

      • DeusLoVult

        I’ve got one. Just two days ago. I wish the video hand’t been deleted, but here:

        See my comment. Andrew misinterpreted a video that is clear as day and isn’t even 2 minutes long.

        • Grandmere

          He’s had to retract or correct more than once as I recall.He needs to quit being a gunslinger and become a sniper.

          • DeusLoVult

            I remember the same, my lady.

          • I hear you. I was referring to that article I sent you the link. You said “Andrew needs to go”. Its a story on persecution. He hunts for persecution stories because of whom we are. This is not an easy task since persecution is overseas which these stories do not come from mainstream but from pastors, missionaries and such and with these some stories slip which are unreliable. He retracts them. But unless one travels to Uganda, how can we ensure 100% reliability. It is a tough business. Some day if you have time, try to see what we go through with persecution stories and our help at Rescue Christians. Its tough to have to confirm so much information and claims and weeding through the good from the bad and the ugly isn’t easy. Its all overseas. Its not like some church burned down here, its in Africa, India and Pakistan where even the system would lie and slander the stories. The best way to analyze Andrew is to be in his shoes. He finds the story. He looks at the source and its generally a reliable source. What should he do? Ignore it because that source had trusted missionaries? Tell me, what would you do Grand?

            Do you still wish Andrew “to go” because of this?

          • Grandmere

            This is my last post on this Andrew business. I have already told you. Andrew is in my naughty boy chair. Relax! I’m not even gonna spank him. I’ll let him off when I’m good and ready.

          • whatever, next time you complain, I will put you on ignore. Relax.

        • Without the video I can’t do much.

          • DeusLoVult

            Sir, I just want Andrew to pay more attention when he posts stuff like that. At least correct it when someone points out to him that he has erred. I could probably find you an archived copy of the video if you’d like, but that’s up to you.

      • There is wisdom in sifting the news we receive daily.

        Here is one example of a man who claimed to be a visionary and several of his predictions turned out to be flat out wrong. At least he had the integrity to step down and urge people to focus on doing God’s will.

        The same warning applies to all of us. We are exhorted to be “wise as serpent” to redeem the time because the days are evil.

        • Indeed. But when a friend says about my employee that “they need to go” I take it seriously. This mean to fire them. Its not a joke. So I try to figure it all out to make a decision. I let one blogger go because of a complaint from a friend. I am tired of the comment section to be frank where I have to examine each and every opinion where people do not understand what it takes to run a massive operation 24/7. And on top of it I get complaints.

          • I understand.

          • HolyFire

            Andrew has a strong track record and he does fine work. No one is perfect. The previous blogger you fired was habitually posting unsubstantiated stories. This case was a rare exception, not the norm. He would’ve learned from this slip, because he is a wise men who is open to reproof and correction.

            Plenty of news outlets have no comments section nowadays. Why not trial it and see if it impacts your resources to continue this work and that of Rescue Christians? If it does, you can always reactive it on your site.

            Otherwise you could seek a team of volunteers (from the regulars here who have the time) you know and trust to manage the comments section for you. That way you can keep a casual eye of what’s going on as you please without being bogged down by it.

            Sorry to chime in, hope it doesn’t fan any flames. It’s just that I very much appreciate the work of and don’t like to see you suffering from an extra thorn (this comments section) that can be removed.

          • No problem HF. The problem is that volunteers tend to make a mess. Tried using volunteers before, it doesn’t work. I even offered folks to write an article here and there. They do it once and you don’t hear from them again. or they prefer to post their articles on the comment section. Most Christians who say they want to “do something about it” when you tell them, here go ahead, go for it, they retract quickly when the rubber meets the road and they realize that there name will be out there. Even friends at times deny you thrice when push comes to shove. I can tell you a ton of experiences. Readers in general do not know what it takes. That is just a fact.

          • HolyFire

            Remove the thorn brother. What’s the worst that can happen?

            If it does reduce your bottom line once you’ve trialed it you can reactive the forum. Maybe, once given a little time, it’ll improve your bottom line. Being freed of this chain (the forum) will give you that much more time to write articles, help Christians, research, (pray), etc.

          • HolyFire

            What if there was a ‘middle’ way? (rhetorical question)

            Maybe you could close the comments section down and create a forum instead for the regulars here who enjoy the community interaction (and have built strong relationships with you personally as donators and/or contributors):


            A forum might be easier for you to manage and delegate the work to volunteers you trust to oversee.

            Just adding this final note in case this isn’t something you’ve considered yet.

  • Reader

    The Vicar is gone off the rails, Walid!

    Both you and I understand the United States is under judgement, indeed, the world is under judgement!

    The delusion is upon us!


    • No Reader,

      You have gone off the rails. Why do you read Breitbart to know what the Pope says? Why not just read the Pope’s entire speech?

      This is why I rarely if ever jump up and down about the Pope when I get such articles. I remain calm.

      Have you read the entire speech?

      While I do disagree with the way he worded his speech in some areas, I also do see much truth to what he said about populism.

      Tell me, why did Breitbart avoid the parts about Populism?

      People are like fish. They sit in the tank. They wait for the fish flakes to drop in the water. They eat. They consume … flakes.

      Its the nature of people: sheep.

      The problem I have is this, if I advise them on how to think like a serpent, they will hate me. So why should I advise?

  • Yes, we all know this. But the Pope’s main message is his focus on populism. Is Breitbart exposing or supporting populism? Its a yes or no question.

  • While I agree with your sermon, I do not see the word “populism” in your response Reader.

  • novictim

    Meanwhile, the ACLU, led by Abdi Soltani (not kidding!) is arguing against a Muslim travel ban in the USA.

  • Timothy Adams

    The answer is simple; death to Islam

  • “Why your preoccupation with populism, because the Vicar made it a topic of discussion?”

    This s like telling Pierre Van Passen about his pre-occupation about Hitler’s intent to do mass genocide.

    I will address the rest of what you wrote in my Sunday Special.

  • Kamau41

    Reader, populism is a very serious growing problem, which will certainly impact your future. The real problem with you is that you don’t see what is really going on around you.
