Ideologically Inconvenient Genocide

Arnold Ahlert asks this about ideologically inconvenient genocide:

Does genocide exist if the religion of its victims doesn’t align itself with the agenda of the Left?

According to Open Doors USA, an organization that describes itself as “a community of Christians who come together to support persecuted believers in more than 60 countries,” an average of 345 Christians are killed, 105 churches and other Christian buildings are burned or attacked, and 219 Christians are detained without trial, arrested, sentenced, and imprisoned — every month.

Sadly those totals will only get bigger because violence against Christians is on the rise worldwide. Last Sunday, six people, including a pastor, were murdered in an attack on a Christian church in the African nation of Burkina Faso. The story barely made a ripple in the mainstream media.

A week earlier no one could ignore the coordinated atrocity that took place in Sri Lanka. A series of bombings at three churches, four hotels, and a housing project were all aimed at the country’s Christian population. Those attacks killed more than 250 and wounded more than 500 on Easter Sunday, one of Christianity’s most important holy days.

Yet what the media couldn’t ignore, they shamefully attempted to realign with the progressive agenda. “Christianity under attack? Sri Lanka church bombings stoke far-right anger in the West,” stated the headline of a piece by The Washington Post, which further noted, “The attacks, which targeted a religious minority in a predominantly Buddhist country, also resonated abroad — especially in Europe. To some, it was further proof that Christians in many parts of the world are under attack.”

Christian are under attack. Nonetheless, the WaPo article asserts otherwise, adding, “The theme of Christianity under attack has been a recurring one for many activists in the United States and Europe.”
