An entire team of ten Christian medical aid workers were senselessly murdered in Afghanistan by the Taliban including: six Americans, one Briton and one German, and two Afghans. They were registered with the Afghan government under the name International Aid Mission (IAM) and were there to provide medical aid–not to proselytize. IAM is a well-known organization has been known as a Christian organization since 1966.
Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention gives his inculpatory assessment of the Taliban saying:
“… we’re facing an obdurate and thorough-going evil… It shows the true implacable evil of this death cult that has taken room within Islam.” on CBN News
Land’s denunciation of the Taliban being evil reminds me of President Reagan’s assessment of Communist Russia as “the evil empire.” Most people have become so politically sensitive that they’re afraid of using such verbal invectives. Obviously, Land is not.
