‘Disgraceful’ Church of England leaves persecuted Nigerians to their fate
by Jenny Taylor, Lapido Media:
DOUGLAS Murray, scourge of politically correct liberals, and president baiter who launched ‘the President Erdogan Offensive Poetry Competition’, has turned his guns on the Church of England for its stance on Northern Nigeria.
The influential Spectator columnist and Associate Director of the Henry Jackson Society has accused the church of ‘wilful self-deception’ in its analysis of the trials of Christians still being slaughtered by militarised Fulani Muslims as the world looks away.
Murray spent four days visiting massacre sites and interviewing victims in and around Jos, capital of Plateau State, in the contested Muslim north of the country.
‘The simple evidence from the map of the diminishment of the Christian community is demonstrable,’ he told Lapido.
He accused the new government of Fulani Muslim President Buhari of ‘impunity and connivance’ in killings that go on under the noses of soldiers sent to protect the villages.
Over and over again witnesses spoke to him independently and in similar vein of the use of military helicopters to drop munitions in Fulani areas.
Despite this, he was struck by the lack of pressure being brought to bear through diplomatic channels on the Nigerian government, whose president was greeted by the Queen and Archbishop Justin Welby in Britain last year.
