Christians Persecuted by Islamists Worldwide

But isn’t it revealing that so many folks refuse to use the word “Christian”?

As worshippers gathered at three churches in separate cities in Sri Lanka to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the most holy day of the Christian calendar, several radical Islamist suicide bombers sent many Christians to meet their risen Savior. In a very profound sense, we take comfort in knowing those souls received a beautiful and eternal reward after they suffered for their faithfulness — just as Christ warned his followers would happen. Another three attacks were perpetrated at Sri Lankan hotels, along with another at a banquet hall, and still another at a home raided by police. A van detonated Monday outside one of the churches, as police attempted to defuse several bombs. All told, 253 people were murdered in these coordinated attacks, including several Americans, and more than 500 were wounded and now must deal with their injuries and grief.

As for the Islamofascist bombers who thought they’d receive their reward and 72 virgins … well, let’s just say they’re experiencing something else this morning.

Compounding the tragedy, the Associated Press reports, “Sri Lankan officials failed to heed warnings from intelligence agencies about the threat of an attack by a domestic radical Muslim group that officials blame for Easter Sunday bombings which killed more than 200 people, the country’s health minister said Monday. The coordinated bombings that ripped through churches and luxury hotels were carried out by seven suicide bombers from a militant group named National Thowfeek Jamaath, Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne said.”

It shouldn’t be surprising that so many in the West are refusing to focus on what this is — a radical Islamist attack primarily on Christians. Instead we get bromides about “Easter worshippers” from the likes of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. When attacks are perpetrated by other ideologues (white supremacists) or target other particular victims (homosexuals), these same folks play up the identity elements. Not so with Christian victims, despite the fact that Christians are far more persecuted around the world than virtually any other group.

In fact, hundreds upon hundreds of Christians have been murdered for their faith already this year in attacks around the world. But with the Leftmedia avoiding reporting most of these deaths, and with prominent leftists avoiding even the word “Christian” — especially when the perpetrators are adherents to the Religion of Peace™ — one could be forgiven for getting the sense that Christians just aren’t a favored victim group. Jesus did say, “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.”

We in our humble shop offer our prayers for the loved ones of the victims, many of whom are our brothers and sisters in the faith.
