The priest wasn’t hosting a Muhammad cartoon contest. He hadn’t “provoked” Muslims or “poked them in the eye.” He was simply a Christian cleric carrying out his duties. John Rene Rockschiil, apparently a convert to Islam, seems to have found that insulting enough. Christians whose sense of charity moves them to want to avoid insulting Muslims at all costs should renounce Christianity and convert to Islam immediately.
“A French Muslim stabs a priest in the cathedral of Mexico,” translated from “Un musulmán francés apuñala a un sacerdote en la catedral de México,” by Ana Fuentes, Actuall, May 16, 2017 (thanks to C.):
A priest who officiated at the Metropolitan Cathedral in Mexico City was stabbed last Monday at 6:00 pm by a middle-aged man who went up to the altar and stabbed a blade into his neck.
According to the archdiocese, the attacker, named John Rene Rockschiil, of Muslim faith according to the Mexican media, was arrested after carrying out the attack with a knife.
After calling the police, a Condor unit from the capital’s public security secretariat arrived in the vicinity of the cathedral, located in the historic city center, to transfer the clergyman to San Miguel Chapultepec hospital.
Some of the testimonies of the parishioners who were in the cathedral emphasize that some of those present detained the 35-year-old man, in addition to providing medical care to the parish priest Miguel Angel Machorro, until the aid services arrived.
