  1. Terry Tee says:

    It’s curious that the first paragraph of the French is not given in the English version:
    Ceci est un acte d’une brutalité et barbarie extrême. Cette violence est diabolique, attaquant des innocents et déniant lâchement le droit fondamental de liberté d’expression.
    = This is an act of brutality and extreme barbarity. This violence is diabolical, attacking innocent people and denying in a cowardly way the fundamental right to freedom of speech.

    While I appreciate Justin Welby’s response, it is not ok not to mention the fact that some of those involved were reported to be Muslim.

    The London Times lead yesterday for example with ‘Islamists kill 12 in attack’ to cite but one example–I know they are considered fringe but it has to be owned.

    This means I hope I would have the integrity to say the same as a Christian if something occurred+those involved called themselves Christian.
