Three teenage schoolgirls beheaded in Indonesia

JAKARTA - Three Christian teenage girls were beheaded Saturday, police said, in an assault that marks an escalation of the violence against non-Muslims in Indonesia's Central Sulawesi province.

The three high school students were found with their heads severed early Saturday in the sectarian-divided town of Poso, said provincial police spokesman Rais Adam.

The girls were believed to have been murdered while they walked to school, Adam said.

He said two of the victims' heads were found near a police post while the third was discovered outside a Christian church in Poso.

Christian was asked,"where is your God?"

He answered,"our God is in heaven storing up all of his eternal anger, wrath and vengence to be release onto those who ridicule and persecute Christ and His church!!!!!"

I received an sms last night asking for prayers for a pastor by the name of Ferdie Flores who was going to be executed today by beating, in East Timor.

I cannot verify this news from any sources online.

These incidences are shocking...

I got the same sms this morning.
There's a notice from the website below (dated September) that reports about his impending execution are inaccurate.

I got it to last night, and rejoice that it was not true (though I am still not certain). There must be something we can do, to help our Indon bro and sis.

>>Three Christian teenage girls were beheaded in Jakarta

I think you should make correction about your posting title.
It didn't happen in Jakarta (which in Java Island) but in a different Island, Sulawesi Island, in a place called Poso.

Otherwise this misleading thing will ruin the credibility of your blog contents :-)

Thank you
