Religious Tolerance?

More religious INtolerance from the religion of peace. Time after time, wherever there Muslims, they demonstrate their total lack of humanity.  Time after time, they use violence and coercion to drive dominate or away all non Muslims.  Even on the small island of Zanzibar, the Muslim majority are not content to let other religions practice in their own way, even in their own homes.


Religious Tolerance?
Zanzibar Muslims tear down church foundation, build mosque.

Zanzibar is an Island off of Tanzania. About 97% of the Island's population are Muslim, the remaining 3% are a combination of Hindu and Christians.

Non Muslim houses of worship are strictly regulated on the Island and for a Church to be built, for example, special permission must be given.

Pastor Paulo Kamole Masegi of the Evangelistic Assemblies of God had purchased land in April 2007 for a church building in the city of Mwanyanya-Mtoni, and by November of that year he had built a house that served as a temporary worship center, he said. As the foundantion of the building was being built, Islamists demolish the foundation while the local police helped to cover it up.

    Masegi intended for the house to serve eventually as his family’s home within the church compound, but on Nov. 11, 2007, his congregation began to worship there. Soon area Muslim residents objected, saying they didn’t like seeing the church in the area, said Pastor Lucian Mgaywa of the Church of God in Tanzania.

    “This was the beginning of the church’s tribulations,” Pastor Mgaywa said

    In August 2009, local Muslims began to build a mosque just three feet away from the church plot, Pastor Mgaywa said. In November 2009, Pastor Masegi began building a permanent church structure. Angry Muslims invaded the compound and destroyed the structure’s foundation, the pastors said.
