Finally we have some real news that sums up the current and impending state of the world, which hasn’t even been uttered by the mainstream media or even the Pope once, since it’s seemingly not ‘politically correct’ to state the facts, but UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has hit the nail on the head, stating that the persecution of Christians has reached “modern day genocide” levels in certain parts of the world.
Yes, and it’s the permeating sentiment of “political correctness” which is at fault, as the persecution of Christians is being shunned by the usual stories of Islam being the “religion of peace,” but if that were the case, then Christians wouldn’t be the most persecuted in the world today, battling a “modern day genocide.”
As we all know, there are at least two Koran versions, and the ‘Medina’ Koran, speaks a different tune entirely, with numerous verses preaching the killing of non-believers.
UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has stated that Christians are sometimes being neglected, and that ‘political correctness’ is to blame for Christians being oppressed.
A new report, commissioned by the Foreign Office, reveals that Christians are enduring genocide in many parts of the world. The report stipulated that Christians are ‘by far the most persecuted’ religious group in the world.
Christians ”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.’
However, isn’t it strange that persecuted Christians are hardly being given asylum anywhere else in the world today? Whilst, other religions are welcome with an “open borders” sentiment.
The report compiled by the current Bishop of Truro, Philip Mounstephen, found ‘shocking’ evidence that the persecution of Christians is worse today, than ever before. Although, if anyone had been following along with world events, you’d already know that this is true, and it has been the case for years, but it’s good that the UK Foreign Secretary is finally addressing this notion.
Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt blamed ‘political correctness’ for a failure to confront the oppression of Christians, calling it the ‘forgotten persecution.’
Mr Hunt vowed to use Britain’s diplomatic influence to defend Christians where they were under attack for their faith, and that the problems were neglected due to “misplaced worry” and confronting it could be interpreted as “colonialist.”
In the report, the Bishop of Truro, Phillip Mountstephen, found that Christians are ‘harassed’ in more countries than any other religious group, especially in Muslim majority regions, such as in the Middle East and North Africa. The bishop found that 245million Christians now suffer ‘high levels of persecution’ in over 50 countries, with a rise of 30million per year.
The report highlighted that Christians are being harassed and murdered in countries where they are attacked by extremist groups in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, north-eastern Nigeria and the Philippines, as well as, in India and China. Let’s make a note now, that India was once solely a Hindu country, once upon a time, and back then they never had this problem, until… (take one guess)…
The Bishop of Truro stated 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.’
The final version of the inquiry, which was commissioned by Jeremy Hunt, will be released later this summer and it now includes recent events, such as the Sri Lanka massacre on Easter Sunday, which killed over 300 people in an Islamic terror attack.
Speaking at the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa, during Jeremy Hunt’s five day tour of Africa, the Foreign Secretary said, ‘I think we’ve all been asleep on the watch when it comes to the persecution of Christians.’
‘I think we have shied away from talking about Christian persecution because we are a Christian country and we have a colonial past.’
‘I think it is partly because of political correctness we have avoided confronting this issue. I think there is a misplaced worry that it is colonialist to talk about a religion that was associated with colonial powers.’
Dr. Phillip Mountstephen added, ‘Through my previous experience… I was aware of the terrible reality of persecution. But to be honest in preparing this report, I’ve been truly shocked by the severity, scale and scope of the problem.’
‘It forces us in the West to ask ourselves some hard questions, not the least of which is this: Why have we been so blind to this situation for so long?’
Dr. Mountstephen stated that it is “ironic” that ‘Western Secularists, Islamic extremists and authoritarian regimes’ express the misconception that Christianity is ‘an expression of white, Western privilege,’ when it’s clear that in today’s world it is anything but, he wrote, ‘In fact, Christianity is primarily a phenomenon of the global South and the global poor.’
The Bishop of Truro said that climate change and denying the right to religious belief, is the biggest ‘existential’ and global threat to ‘human’s flourishing.’
He added, ‘We are quite rightly becoming sensitised to the former. We must urgently attend to the latter.’
He said, ‘Taking this issue seriously will allow the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to do its job better because it impinges on key issues such as trade, security and gender equality.’
Well, at least somebody is taking a stand, with both Jeremy Hunt and Phillip Mountstephen, speaking out on the obvious, which everyone else has been afraid to say, seemingly due to ‘political correctness’ gone awry.
But, are they also aware of how this fact of Christian persecution, in future generations may effect the continent of Europe itself. Since in recent years, in the European Union, during the migrant influx, they allowed millions of migrants in, from these Muslim majority nations, where Christians are being persecuted and killed, and just how that might affect the future persecutions of Christians in Europe, for instance? Since it will be happening right on their own doorstep, if this “politically correct” bias persists, and if nothing is done about it.
Let’s hope it never comes to that. However, this is not without fact, and it’s true that the phenomena of socialist ‘political correctness’ and its indoctrination on the liberal masses, has become a weapon of censorship in the face of undeniable facts.
Since, not giving a voice to the people that are being persecuted, but instead favouring those that are protected under a seemingly undeterred agenda, which is complicit in Christian “cultural suicide” and silencing those speaking out against it, which should also be “well noted” by now, shouldn’t it?
That dangerous denial, must now cease to exist, if there’s to be any normalcy and equality for the future of the world, as this commissioned report shows undoubtedly to be true.
Yes, Christians are now the most persecuted religious group in the world, earning the title, year after year, consecutively, but it has been consistently ignored by the mainstream media and the mainstream press. But, why is that?
Lastly, who can forget that mysterious recent fire at the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, France, without any real explanation, and all the Islamic terror attacks in recent years, across the world, and in Europe? Or how about Pope Francis being silent on all of this, in favour of other trivial statements, but not about this whatsoever… Isn’t that just weird? That’s just a few thoughts for people to ponder, as we enter the weekend…
