Christians in Europe are Now Being Targeted in Their Places of Worship

BBC: France church attack: Priest killed in hostage-taking near Rouen

The BBC is being circumspect in describing the events.  Worshipers were attacked when leaving the morning Mass, what the Beep calls a puzzling motivation is rather obvious when one hears from the survivors that the attackers wore Islamist garb and shouted about "Allah", and the priest was beheaded.

He was 92 [or 84 or 86, depending on the source] and just became the first official Roman Catholic martyr of this new age of intolerance and nihilism.

Twitter in all of its absurdity and splendor:
"Motive unclear" pretty well sums up the whole world these days.

Update: The Coracle beat The Hartford Courant to this story by 45 minutes.  It helps to have a reading knowledge of French and to rise early.
