Isn’t it interesting that Christians are being persecuted by Muslims and face elimination in the Middle East yet all you hear about is supposed Islamophobia from the Muslims. The religious freedom of Muslims in the U.S. is incredible considering there have been so many reports of Islamic extremism being preached at Mosques. The Sultan of Brunei just banned Christmas with a punishment of jail time if caught celebrating Christmas. Can you imagine if we did that here in America? We’re expected to be tolerant of other religions yet Christians are the most persecuted in the Middle East. In fact, the Archbishop of Canterbury warns that Christianity faces elimination throughout the Middle East:
Christianity is facing “elimination” in the Middle East at the hands of an Islamic State “apocalypse”, the Archbishop of Canterbury will warn today.
The Most Reverend Justin Welby will use his Christmas Day sermon at Canterbury Cathedral to say IS is “igniting a trail of fear, violence, hatred and determined oppression”.
He will also brand the Islamic extremists as “a Herod of today” – a reference to the Biblical despotic king of Judea at the time of Jesus’s birth.
“Confident that these are the last days, using force and indescribable cruelty, they (IS) seem to welcome all opposition, certain that the warfare unleashed confirms that these are indeed the end times,” he will tell the congregation.
“They hate difference, whether it is Muslims who think differently, Yazidis or Christians, and because of them the Christians face elimination in the very region in which Christian faith began.
“This apocalypse is defined by themselves and heralded only by the angel of death.
“To all who have been or are being dehumanised by the tyranny and cruelty of a Herod or an ISIS, a Herod of today, God’s judgement comes as good news, because it promises justice.”
Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis used his own festive message to urge all faiths to unite in the face of attacks on their freedom to worship.
He said: “It has been reported that persecution of Christians persists in over a hundred countries, more than for any other religion.
