Did ISIS Crucify a Catholic Priest on Good Friday After Kidnapping Him?

ISIS is known for committing atrocities, but they’re being accused of a particularly horrible one now. Are they guilty of crucifying a Catholic priest on Good Friday?

From the Daily Mail:

The Indian Catholic priest kidnapped by ISIS-linked terrorists in Yemen earlier this month was crucified on Good Friday, it has been claimed.

Father Thomas Uzhunnalil, 56, was taken by Islamist gunmen, reportedly linked to ISIS, who attacked an old people’s home in Aden, southern Yemen, killing at least 15 people, on March 4.

The terrorists reportedly carried out the heinous murder on Good Friday, after threatening to do so earlier in the week, according to the Archbishop of Vienna

It was reported last week that several religious groups had received threats that Father Thomas would be crucified on Good Friday, but this was denied by his church in hometown of Bangalore.

However, the Archbishop of Vienna, Christoph Cardinal Schönborn, told a congregation gathered in St. Stephen’s Cathedral in the Austrian capital that the priest had been crucified.

Thankfully, this one is not true. The archbishop, who does not belong to the same diocese as the kidnapped priest, has since retracted his story after the diocese that the priest belongs to, of southern Arabia, released a statement saying that there is no evidence that the priest was crucified and they have strong information indicating he is still alive. However, he is clearly still in grave danger and needs all of our prayers.
