My first thoughts on reading this was "How sad, people praying to God and having a catastrophe happen." Very tragic. People just try their best with the cultural they are handed. Let us not forget the great heritage of the Moors in Spain where Christain and Muslem scholars worked together to translate the Greek writings. In fact, I read that the classical Greek was translated from Arabic to Latin for Christian Europe. An example for today's world to follow. In addition, I do think that in the Old Testament when Moses crossed the Red Sea and many Egyptians were kill, God told the Hebrews that He takes no pleasure in the distruction of his creatures, nor should the Hebrews. neverknow2: From a Human Christian American. I apologize for the lack of compassion shown by some. Be assured that it is not all of us. Irreverence is never a virtue. A prayer goes out to the poor families of those who have passed on. May they RIP.

When the tower of Silom fell killing 18 in Jerusalem, Jesus had this to say in the gospel of Luke;

"Or those eighteen men who were crushed by the fall of the tower of Siloam, were they worse than all the other men living in Jerusalem? I say to you, It is not so: but if your hearts are not changed, you will all come to an end in the same way."

Death is an equal opportunity reminder that we are all the same, no matter what our faith.

Sheesh hit submit too soon again. 36 people dead... 71 injured is a bit over 100 worshippers getting harmed in their sanctuary.
