The Christian Post recently reported that the United States government will help the millions of Christians around the world being persecuted. President Obama said in a statement:
“Today, Christianity has become the most persecuted religion, where out of five people killed out of religious reasons, four of them are Christians. In 81 countries around the world Christians are persecuted and 200 million Christians live in areas where they are discriminated against. Millions of Christian lives are threatened by followers of radical religious ideologies.”
Nah, just kidding.
The United States government couldn’t give a crap about Christians being persecuted around the world.
I can assure the world Christian people of America care a great deal, but as subjects of a totalitarian regime that is doing all it can to dilute our own religious freedoms, it is difficult to persuade the government to change its current multiculturalism.
In fact, the American Center for Law and Justice is suing the Obama administration to get them to do something in the face of this genocide.
The country making Christians a priority is Hungary. That statement above can be attributed to Zoltan Balog, the Hungarian Minister for Human Capacities.
“Our interest not only lies in the Middle East but in forms of discrimination and persecution of Christians all over the world. It is therefore to be expected that we will keep a vigilant eye on the more subtle forms of persecutions within European borders.”
As a Christian I am grateful that a government like Hungary has decided to help. As an American I am quite embarrassed over my own government’s lack of will to help. It’s a political correctness thing. You know, not to offend Muslims. Our administration believes that Christianity has had its due and its time for other cultures to assert itself. That the one they are championing is a culture of death and oppression is no matter.
Oops, is this too Islamaphobic? Have you ever wondered why the millions of non-Christians who despise Christians aren’t labelled as Christianophobic? I’m not into labels per se but it just goes to show you how biased the world is against Christianity when the abject hate against it is so fierce it can’t get its own cool label.
In the European rush for multiculturalism and desire to placate Islam a very real persecution is happening right under Western government’s nose. Christian persecution has to stop. I am grateful for Hungary doing what richer and larger countries should also be doing.
