America's Holy Warriors

The German TV magazine Panorama denounced Southern Baptist missionaries in Iraq as America's Holy Warriors, comparing their spiritual and humanitarian activities with Islamic terrorist attacks.

The program, shown on a major network June 24, underscored its assertions by quoting Baptists saying they are prepared to die for their convictions, reported the Assist News Service.

Many Christians telephoned the station in protest, and the German Baptist Union criticized the one-sided portrayal.

German Baptist spokesman Friedrich Schneider points out not only American, but Arab Baptists have been active in Iraq for a long time.
