Continuing violence in Central African Republic

Central African Republic is a mess. The atrocities being committed against citizens there in recent months is truly disturbing. Worldmag.com has my latest story about the situation there:

Last month, Central African Republic’s President Michel Djotodia “dissolved” the Seleka Islamist rebel group that helped him seize power in March. Djotodia announced the rebel group that looted, raped, burned down homes, and killed hundreds of civilians in recent months “no longer exists,” according to Agence France-Presse (AFP).

About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."
