Liberals, I'm waiting for the outrage...

Remember the (largely bogus) stories about black churches being burned, a few years ago? Big outrage, remember? (I'm still disgusted at the prayer that was offered in our church then, to preserve churches from the "white racist conspiracy" that was attacking them. Of course no conspiracy was ever found, but the Episcopal Church has faith! Maybe not in God, but definitely in the existance of "white racist conspiracies.")

SO, here's an interesting item, (thanks to Orbital):

Governor Ahmed Sani of Zamfara State [in Nigeria], has ordered the demolition of all churches in the state, as he launched the second phase of his Sharia project yesterday.

Speaking at the launch in Gusau, the state capital, Governor Sani disclosed that time was ripe for full implementation of the programme as enshrined in the Holy Quran.

He added that his government would soon embark on demolition of all places of worship of unbelievers in the state, in line with Islamic injunction to fight them wherever they are found.

I'll just sit down and wait a bit, while the outrage over these black churches grows and grows...
