Theological Debates in Moscow


A “masked gunman” — which is how many armed, radical Islamic apologists must now find themselves described — took a theological dispute to a church in Moscow and found a priest to hear his complaint:

A masked gunman entered a church and murdered a Russian Orthodox priest who had received death threats for converting Muslims to Christianity and criticizing Islam, prosecutors and church officials said Friday.

Reuters has the details. The priest, Fr. Daniil Sysoyev, was indeed an outspoken critic of Islam, but had managed to hold his fire during the 34 years he lived.
