Thoughts on Islam Muslim anger over cartoon spreads

I'm disturbed by the outrage and violent protests the Muslim world is having over the cartoon depiction of their prophet Mohammed. If you view the protests, many are calling for the beheading of the writers (cartoon) or Europeans all together. Fires are burning and property is being destroyed over a cartoon.

Many of you may say, "Well those are the Muslim extremists. They don't all feel that way." And, you may be right. I am hopeful that moderate Muslims - ones who do not scorn - out number the extremists.

It is during times like these that I pray fervently for our Christian missionaries who are bravely spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. May God's Hand protect our brothers and sisters in the field.
