One Cell Fails With a 9-year old; Another Uses an 8-year old and Succeeds. Horror.

I learned of this news just minutes after I had the privilege of watching my 8-year old granddaughter and her friends enjoy a Hawaiian theme birthday party out in the backyard.  The very thought of anyone using a mere child to tie a bomb to, and to blow other people up including her, makes my gut reel.  If this is done in the name of religion, then where is the outrage against that religion.

Can you imagine what would happen if Christians tried something like this.  All hell would literally break loose.  In fact, in North America it would be totally illegal (so far).

We need to get out of our comfort zone.  Pastors I'm not sure how you can stay silent and have your church sing "Jesus loves the little children of the world" and then totally ignore what is going on.  It's time to risk our privilege in giving charitable donation receipts for the sake of Christ and the children.  Stay silent and a few decades from now it may be your children being used like this in your own country.

There's no doubt since one terrorist cell had failed with this approach using a 9-year old girl last week in Pakistan, and now it was tried by Afghan jihadists, it will certainly make it's way into the standard playbook for terrorism and jihadists' actions.  Yet, we stay stunned and silent.  I can understand stunned, but I can't understand silent.

Can we at least hear some "Amens!" in the comments after you check this out?
