Gunmen Kill Churchgoers In Nigeria

The Quran commands Muslims to fight and kill non-Muslims:

Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. Sura 9:29

O Prophet (Muhammad SAW)! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be harsh against them, their abode is Hell, - and worst indeed is that destination. Sura 9:73

Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. Sura 48:29

Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allah's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. Sura 9:111

Therefore it should be unsurprising that these Muslims killed my brethren in Christ Jesus:
11/04/2011 Nigeria (BBC News)-At least two people have been shot dead and 11 wounded after gunmen launched an overnight attack on a church in northern Nigeria, officials say. The attack happened in the Kaduna state town of Zonkwa, which saw serious violence after April's election.

Kaduna is divided along political, ethnic and religious lines and the BBC's Nura Ringim in the state says it is thought to be a revenge attack. Thousands of Muslim Hausas and Fulanis were forced from their homes in April. Our correspondent says that some of those attacked had vowed to take revenge, as had the Boko Haram Islamist militant group, based further north in Borno state.

A police spokesman told our correspondent that some of those shot in the latest attack on a congregation performing a night vigil were in a critical condition.

In April's elections, Patrick Ibrahim Yokowa became the state's first Christian governor.
More than 1,000 people have been killed in recent years in neighbouring Plateau state in a deadly spiral of revenge attacks between rival groups similarly split along ethnic, religious and political lines(Source).
