Some Christian leaders can't get excited over their mission of ministering to souls and their congregation's spiritual needs; it takes a good fight with traditional mores to set their blood a-pumping. Or maybe a good anti-war protest.
We now present a Sunday story of the rewards of toiling in the trenches. For those who think that some are beyond redemption.
From the NY POST
October 12, 2007 -- Convicted terrorist Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind behind the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993, now says he's converted from Islam to Christianity, but his former warden thinks it's a scam.A prison employee remembered quite a different reaction from Yousef and his buddies on September 11, 2001.
The nephew of reputed al Qaeda kingpin and leader of the 9/11 attacks Khalid Sheik Mohammed, Yousef apparently has had a religious change of heart while serving 240 years at the "Supermax" prison in Colorado, according to a "60 Minutes" report this Sunday.
"He's playing a game with someone," said a skeptical Robert Hood, the ex-warden of the nation's toughest federal prison.
"If he's doing that, he's doing it for the reaction," he said, recalling how the devout Muslim prayed almost every hour in his cell.
"He has that Charlie Manson look."
Yousef was convicted of masterminding the first World Trade Center bombing in which six people were killed and a thousand injured.
A Supermax correction officer, Barbara Batulis, remembered that as the horrors of 9/11 were being televised, terrorist prisoners rejoiced.God finds his way to a Muslim bomber and calls on him in an American prison; Christopher Hitchens is still looking for the number.
"We had a lot of then jump up and down, scream and yell and clap and they were very excited," she said.
