Perspective, lack thereof

Anti-Christian persecution in China:

“They hung me up across an iron gate, then they yanked open the gate and my whole body lifted until my chest nearly split in two. I hung like that for four hours.”

Anti-Christian persecution in Saudi Arabia:

Just days before Crown Prince Abdullah showed up at President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, to declare that “tolerance must extend to those of all faiths and practices,” Saudi police stormed a clandestine church in a suburb of Riyadh and arrested 40 Christians for proselytizing.

Anti-Christian persecution in Sudan:

Sudan’s militant Muslim regime is slaughtering Christians who refuse to convert to Islam, according to the head of an aid group who recently returned from the African nation.


Anti-Christian persecution in the United States of America:

One of the generals on the pro-Christmas side is Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association in Tupelo, Miss. “Sometimes it’s hard to tell whether this is sinister — it’s the purging of Christ from Christmas — or whether it’s just political correctness run amok,” he said. “I think in the case of the White House, it’s just political correctness.”

Wildmon does not give retailers the same benefit of the doubt. This year, he has called for a consumer boycott of Target stores because the chain issued a holiday advertising circular that did not mention Christmas. Last year, he aimed a similar boycott at Macy’s Inc., which averted a repeat this December by proclaiming “Merry Christmas” in its advertising and in-store displays.


Ironically, one of the whiners that the Post quotes is the editor-in-chief of WorldNetDaily, who, having published the story about Sudanese Christians, should really know better than to give a shit about such piss-ant complaints.


One thought on “Perspective, lack thereof

  1. Thank you, Dietsch! Just this past Sunday I heard whining about the senate not being allowed to say Jesus in prayers and “next thing you know the non-Christians will take ‘In God We Trust’ off our money!” and something about, “When will the Christian majority say ‘enough is enough’?” So I launched into a little speech about the tyranny of the majority and all the while I’m thinking, “What a bunch of babies – can they really feel persecuted in *this* country?”

    Forcing people to lock step has never seemed all that Christ-like to me, but it seems to be what these groups are after.
