It’s been building for decades, but never has the anti-Christian bigotry of the global elites who run the world’s major media outlets been more obvious than it is today.
At least 290 Christians, including four Americans, were massacred at three churches and several hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday morning, many of them as they were worshiping their Risen Savior. A team of Islamic suicide bombers carried out the atrocities in what was described by authorities as a “well coordinated attack.”
CAIR and its Democrat allies screamed “Islamophobia!” and “white nationalism!” in regard to the New Zealand attack. But these same folks have largely avoided any reference to the 300 victims in Sri Lanka as “Christians” and downplay or ignore the “Islamic” connection of the perpetrators. Those attacked while sitting in their churches have been called “foreigners,” “worshippers,” “people” and “people of faith,” anything but Christians.
I believe they are laying the foundation for a global crackdown on Christianity, a crackdown that is already underway in countries as diverse as China, France, Germany, Nigeria, Pakistan, Egypt, the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia.
The same Christophobic war on Christianity will arrive soon in a city near you. “Soft” persecution has already caused conservative U.S. Christians to lose jobs and to be passed over for promotions simply because they are pro-life, believe in the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, or stand against creeping Sharia in their community.
This soft persecution will turn hard soon enough, just wait. For a preview of what’s coming, take a look across the big pond at the formerly free countries of France and Germany. Churches are desecrated there every day. Pastors are attacked.
In an article headlined “” CNN national-security reporter Peter Bergen called the terrorists “religious extremists” but couldn’t bring himself to pin it on Islamic terrorists, preferring instead to describe the attacks mainly in the context of Sri Lanka’s past history of civil war. Never mind that its civil war ended 10 years ago!
