ISIS Crucified Catholic Priest On Good Friday
The group has persecuted many Christians across the Middle East.
The militant group Islamic State (ISIS) continued their persecution of Christian groups, by allegedly crucifying a Catholic priest on Good Friday, the Washington Times reports.
The victim was Reverend Thomas Uzhunnalil, a Salesian priest, who was kidnapped in Yemen earlier this month during a raid on a Catholic nursing home run by Mother Teresa’s organisation Missionaries of Charity.
Father Uzhunnalil, a native of India, was captured on March 4, in a raid which also killed 16 Christian nuns and nurses. His death by the same method the Romans used to kill Jesus—an event marked by Christians around the world on Good Friday—was confirmed at the Easter Vigil Mass by Cardinal Christoph Schonborn of Vienna
