Religion of Peace. If "Peace" Means Arson and Murder.

Religion of Peace. Religion of Benevolence. That's what everyone in the press and government keeps telling us. Via LGF.
Nigerian Muslims protesting caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad attacked Christians and burned churches on Saturday, killing at least 15 people [...] An Associated Press reporter saw mobs of Muslim protesters swarm through the city center with machetes, sticks and iron rods. One group threw a tire around a man, poured gas on him and setting him ablaze. [sic]
Hey that's peaceful. The peace of the grave but peace nevertheless.
Thousands of rioters burned 15 churches in Maiduguri in a three-hour rampage before troops and police reinforcements restored order, Nigerian police spokesman Haz Iwendi said. [...] "Most of the dead were Christians beaten to death on the streets by the rioters," Ezeoke [a Christian resident] said. Witnesses said three children and a priest were among those killed.
That's the second priest killed. You may remember the Italian priest shot to death in Turkey but a "youth". I know about that turn the other cheek thing but I'm wondering if there's point when even Christ would say enough is enough.

Update: CNN claims 16 dead and 11 churches burned to the ground. When will American churches start raising money to buy weapons for our besieged Nigerian brothers? I'll gladly give.
