I’m a Somali who converted to secularism. I’m skeptical of all religions, especially, Islam. But I believe people should be allowed to practice whatever they believe so long as they are not harming others. Its sad that someone want to kill someone merely for switching belief. This phenomenon is common among Muslims. Look at what is happening to Ayan Hirsi. My condolences to all the Somalis for Jesus martyrs. Not because I believe in Jesus or God but because no one should be killed for expressing what they believe.

Keep the fight….

Christians are hypocrites. They say muslims kill those who convet other faith, but their bible said that too. Even adultry case. here is proove. Jesus said on Luke 19:27 (But as for these enemies of mine who didn't want me to be their king-bring them here and slaughter them in my presence!'") Here is adultry one (If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her ... and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: And the damsel's father shall say ... these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. ... But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her (city shall stone her with stones) (that she die). Deuteronomy 22:13-21

I am isaac from kenya i am most impressed REV.MOHAMED HAJI testimony on the price they pay for the sake of the cross.I was watching his testimony and i was realy touched.In particular this verse he read phillipians 3:8.

Out of this i have learnt that as many as we have the chance to worship our GOD but we have not used that grace when our brothers and sisters are struggling and suffering for the sake of the cross.remember we have been called to leave.

They are with their Lord.

....but even if they were in hell,
they still would be of heaven;
For everyone who is in Christ
carries heaven in him.

- just as Daniel's friends were not alone in the fiery furnace, so the Somali believers are not alone in the fire which is Somalia. God sees and reckons every suffering, He stores up every tear in His bottle for the day of reward and judgment.

Jesus came to preach peace and to stop worship of idols even muhhamed did so they did not preach religion because they never heard one they preached about one God. and the creator of all .Religion is just a fashion brought up by pple that wanted to divide God creation.
