Religious cleansing of Christians
Yep. That's about right. Largely because we, in the West, have focused on the sins of Christianity so long, I doubt most care. Even some Christians. Many former colleagues from more liberal denominations had no problem jumping on the 'Christianity is the most evil belief in human history' bandwagon. When people like Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens maintain the everlasting admiration of our media culture, it's not hard to see why no one particularly cares that Christians are being targeted for extermination. If it were some other group, maybe. If it were some Christian based culture going after a non-Western, non-Christian culture, you better believe we would be pitching hissy-fits right now. But it isn't. It's just Christians who are beginning to be targeted. For years we've heard folks tell Christians to stop bellyaching about being hated, loathed, mocked, ridiculed, and verbally attacked. Now they are being physically attacked and I"m still not seeing a turn around from those who once said there was nothing to worry about. I'm starting to wonder if it's not because they don't care, but because they do, and are firmly on the side of those doing the persecuting. Maybe not, but it's enough to make me wonder.
