Christian Church Opens In Qatar, Amazingly, No Violence From The RoP

Even more amazing is that the church was actually allowed to open in the first place

The first church permitted in Qatar held its first Mass on Sunday without incident, following threats by Islamists unhappy about a Christian place of worship in the capital of the Gulf state.

Under tight security, thousands of Christians attended the service at the Our Lady of the Rosary Roman Catholic Church in Doha. Local media described the meeting as lengthy and joyful.

Last week several western embassies warned citizens that the church could be targeted, following threats of violence from Islamists.

The U.S. Embassy added the new church to a list of examples of potential targets which it said could be attacked by extremists. The Australian Embassy in the United Arab Emirates, which deals with Qatar, noted that a terrorist Web site had made reference to the new church complex.

OK, it is not all peaches and cream, but the very fact that the government of Qatar allowed a church to open and Christians to go and worship is a huge step forward. But, now we have to wait and see if the extremist forces of the RoP do actually attack the church with physical force.
