This is a man who will truly deserve his reward in heaven... most American Christians can't even comprehend what it is like to truly suffer for Christ. Stories such as his make me wonder how God would ever accept me, one who has never suffered significantly for Christ, and perhaps never will. It also makes me wonder how it can be that Christians in this country have lost so much perspective that they DARE to preach a prosperity gospel. Such a self-centered, narcissistic message was not the one that my Savior brought to the earth 2000 years ago.

P.S. Ah, the Religion of Peace™ is at it again. A city in Somalia has made it a capital offense to not pray 5 times a day to Allah. Sheik Hussein Barre Rage (ironic name) said that those who don't follow the new edict will "definitely be beheaded according to Islamic law." Mr. Rage continued, "As Muslims we should practice Islam fully, not in part, and that is what our religion enjoins us to do." Well, on the bright side, you have to admire their religious conviction. Now, if only they would channel it in positive ways.
