Kenya experienced its worst terrorist attack since the bombing of the U.S. Embassy in 1998.
Al-Shabab, the Somali based affiliate of al Qaeda, stormed the residences of Garissa University targeting Christian students. When it was all over 147 people were killed, most of them Christian.
I understand that many Christians in this country feel maligned especially with the row in recent days over Indiana's RFRA with gay rights activists. While some people opposing the law have gone over the line and have threatened violence, it is clear that terrorist organizations such as ISIS, Boko Haram and Al-Shabab represent a far greater threat to Christians. Today's heinous attack in Kenya should remind us of this fact. It should also remind us that such an attack against Christians could occur on American soil.
