So This is Respect For Religion?

Previously, I posted about the Catholic priest in Turkey who was shot and killed this past Sunday. Witnesses described a 14 or 15 year old boy running from the scene shouting "Allah Akbar" (God is Great). At the time, it was feared the incident may have been related to the Cartoon violence, but no one could say for sure.

Well, now it's looking like they can.

Michelle Malkin has been covering this incident since the beginning; she links to a Reuters alert which states a suspect has been taken into custody. Unconfirmed reports indicate the student has confessed.

The state Anatolian news agency said the student, aged 16, had been
carrying a 9 mm pistol when he was captured in the Black Sea city of Trabzon,
where Andrea Santoro, 61, was gunned down on Sunday while praying.

Gunned down while praying.


You feel your faith has been denigrated by some static images on paper, so the appropriate response for you is to murder a holy man in the midst of prayer?

Words fail me right now.
