According to a new study, the modern-day persecution of Christians is enough to be considered a genocide.
Christians are ‘by far the most persecuted’ religious group and are enduring what amounts to genocide in some parts of the world, a report concluded.
They are being driven out of the Middle East in a modern-day exodus that means the religion could be wiped out in parts ‘where its roots go back furthest’, the study commissioned by the Foreign Office found.
And the report by the Bishop of Truro, the Right Rev Philip Mounstephen, found ‘shocking’ evidence that the persecution is worse today than ever.
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt last night blamed ‘political correctness’ for a failure to confront the oppression of Christians, which he called the ‘forgotten persecution’.
The report goes on.
Mr Hunt said he would use Britain’s diplomatic influence to defend Christians where they were under attack for their faith, and admitted the problem was sometimes neglected due to ‘misplaced worry’ that confronting it would be interpreted as ‘colonialist’.
The bishop said the study found Christians are ‘harassed’ in more countries than any other religious group, and especially in predominantly Muslim countries in the Middle East and North Africa. His report found 245million Christians now suffer ‘high levels of persecution’ in 50 countries, a rise of 30million year on year.
In particular, they have been attacked by extremist groups in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, north-eastern Nigeria and the Philippines, as well as in India and China. He added that the Middle East is witnessing the ‘decimation of some of the faith group’s oldest and most enduring communities’ and called for ‘urgent government support’.
There is a lot to unpack here and I would say click the Daily Mail link above to read the entirety of the article. The first interesting thing is the fact Christians are being slaughtered in the millions each year. The Mainstream Media perpetuates this lie that Christians are the ones who are evil. That Christians are a sign of privilege and that Muslims are the ones facing grave threats. However, as this report shows actually the complete opposite is the case. Muslims worldwide are responsible for the persecution of Christians. This isn’t to say Muslims aren’t be persecuted in many countries but the difference is that the persecution is coming from people within there own faith mostly. The second and final major part is the fact that political correctness is to blame for not stopping it. As I stated above the media is responsible for refusing to push this issue. The Mainstream Media refuses to call out these atrocities because they have this politically correct view of the world.
