if you are captured by an Islamic radical, as this church and its’ former priest found out:
Iskender’s relatives, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal, said the unidentified group that seized Iskender on Sunday had demanded a ransom and that his church condemn a statement made by Pope Benedict XVI last month.
Before Iskender was kidnapped, his relatives said, the church already had put up signs condemning the statement and calling for good relations between Christians and Muslims.
The message was posted again, they said, after the priest’s kidnappers made their demand.
You see, you simply cannot negotiate with someone whose mind is so crazed that he is willing to kill you for something someone else said. It must be terribly difficult to live under such conditions.
