Some people did something – Where does Christianity make its stand?

On March 20, 2019, Breitbart reported “Twelve French Churches Attacked, Vandalized In One Week.”  Without evidence, we cannot make a connection between these attacks and the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral.  But, shouldn’t we at least be a little suspicious.  The article further reported an average of two Christian churches per day were vandalized during 2018.  Yet, none of this was mentioned during the coverage of the Notre Dame fire.  Just seems to me we, in America and across the World, we go to great lengths to downplay attacks on Christianity and Christian symbols.  If this was just one of the other more than 1000 attacks on European Christian churches in the past year, we would have not heard of it.

I watched a little of the coverage on Fox News during the Cavuto show.  Cavuto interrupted and cut off Catholic League President Bill Donahue who mentioned his suspicions that that it may be more than an accident.  Actually, Cavuto was closer to we can’t talk about that, speculate about that even mention that hysteria as he continued to talk over Donahue until his mic was dropped.  Another of Fox’s liberals, Shepard Smith did the same to a guest on his program. Hear no evil, see no evil heads in the sand and unwilling to entertain the slightest possibility that is was anything other than an accident.   Or maybe Kelleigh Nelson had it right and Neal and Shep were toeing the corporate line.

Just to educate Fox and the remainder of the intentionally ignorant media, Raymond Ibrahim, Gatestone Institute reports: “European Churches: Vandalized, Defecated On and Torched “Every Day””  He reports of incidents across Europe adding, “Sometimes, sadly, in European regions with large Muslim populations, there seems to be a concomitant rise in attacks on churches and Christian symbols.”  He concludes with a comment from a German News Site, (Politically Incorrect) PI-News that states: “Hardly anyone writes and speaks about the increasing attacks on Christian symbols. There is an eloquent silence in both France and Germany about the scandal of the desecrations and the origin of the perpetrators…. Not a word, not even the slightest hint that could in anyway lead to the suspicion of migrants… It is not the perpetrators who are in danger of being ostracized, but those who dare to associate the desecration of Christian symbols with immigrant imports. They are accused of hatred, hate speech and racism.”  Sounds like a description of the American News Media and our chicken politicians and a tenet of the new world order.

European Union states liberalism with its open borders and uncontrolled migration by masses of military aged men, invited this upon their people.  If you’ve traveled much in Europe, you know nearly every city has its Notre Dame, historic and ancient symbols of Christianity.  Those cities also have their Muslim No-Go Zones for police.  Attacks on these Churches and symbols of Christianity is a beginning that has an ugly end.  It is the first ingredient of a recipe for much worse

In Nigeria, the American Center for Law and Justice reports what amounts to Christian genocide by  ISIS-affiliated Boko Haram and Muslim Fulani tribesmen.  Here in America, there seems to be no media interest.  The Christian Post reports that Christian persecution is expected to increase in 2019. From Nigeria, to India, to China, to North Korea, to Eritrea, to Pakistan, to Egypt ….

Do you think there are no attacks on Christianity here in the land of the free?  David Limbaugh wrote a well-sourced book on the topic, Persecution: How Liberals Are Waging War Against Christians.  Although published in 2003, the book lays out many examples of attacks on Christianity.  It would be worth your while to read.

We live in a country founded on the precept of unalienable rights endowed to us by our Creator.  God-given.  If you live in the United States of America, no matter the reason that brought you here, understand that it is the Judeo-Christian value system that’s the foundation of the world’s only country founded on the principle of individual liberty.  It is the core value of the world’s exceptional nation.  It is what makes American culture unique.  We have brought in and allowed into our country cultural mindsets antithetical to our core values.  People unwilling to assimilate or embrace our culture, yet use America’s freedoms to attack us.

But it isn’t just immigrants attacking our great culture and with it freedom itself.  It’s our own citizens.  People who are offended by Christian symbols.  People who will label you as a bigot because you will not embrace behavior or lifestyles that go against your Christian beliefs.  People who preach tolerance, but cannot bring themselves to be tolerant of Christians or for that matter most anyone who offers diversity of thought.  Groupthink, stifling views of others, persecuting those who do not agree with your life choices…  None of that leads to freedom.  It leads to tyranny and serfdom followed by much worse.

I don’t care about what you believe, your race, your sexual orientation, your religion or any other identifying characteristic you may come up with.  If you embrace America and it’s founding ideal of individual liberty, I will stand shoulder to shoulder with you and defend the America from all enemies foreign and domestic.

Where does freedom make its stand?  Where does freedom’s foundation, Christianity, make it’s stand?  If we cannot answer those questions maybe we do not deserve the great nation with which God blessed us.

  1. Americans must exercise their free speech daily. Do not stop. If you fall prey to the anti-Christs everywhere, then where is your faith? Why after more than 2 hundred years would we lay down and hand over the very rights we were born to? This is America the free and the brave. Not the land of the cowering wimps. We need to clean up this place of the mess growing daily of lies and corruption. People why aren’t you demanding Soros lose access to America? He is a little old man/control freak. We are a mighty nation. Stand your ground. Don’t bow down to the haters or invaders. Live your rights.
