Tom Quiner points out that Hillary Clinton has condemned the Orlando attack in strong terms, but has not mentioned a group facing extinction.
Speaking in Cleveland, she reacted to this weekend’s tragic massacre in Orlando at the hands of another Islamic terrorist.
A couple of things hit me. Here is one:
“In the Middle East, ISIS is attempting a genocide of religious and ethnic minorities. They are slaughtering Muslims who refuse to accept their medieval ways. They are beheading civilians, including executing LGBT people. They are murdering Americans and Europeans, enslaving, torturing and raping women and girls.”
What is missing from this list? Christians. ISIS is targeting Christians. Those who haven’t been burned, beheaded, or brutalized have fled. The Mideast, the home of Christianity, is increasingly devoid of Christians. Catholic churches have been burned, seized, and converted to mosques.
I can’t really say if the world has noticed the killings of Christians in the Middle East, but I have. I’ve also noted the lack of urgency concerning this amazing turn of events.
Christianity is being driven from it’s cradle.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong about condemning the horrors which ISIS has perpetrated around the world. Nothing wrong with taking special note that this latest barbarity was committed by someone whose religion demands that gays be killed.
I would only ask the world to remember that all victims of this death cult are God’s creation. The Christians of the Middle East, the individuals marked for death by their sexual practices, and the people who just happen to be the ‘wrong kind of Muslim’ all deserve our prayers.
