Islam, the media & the conspiracy of silence

Apr 25, 2019 by

by Gavin Ashenden: One of the Sunday school teachers in the Church in Sri Lanka has written about what they were doing on Easter day. “Today at Zion Church we asked the children, ‘how many of you would be willing to die for Christ?’ Everyone raised their hands. Minutes later we took them into the main service. The blast happened. Half of them died on the spot.” In one of the two other Catholic Churches that were blown up, the bomber waited until the children had come back into the main liturgy...

Why I Refuse To Attend My College’s LGBT Graduation Ceremony

Apr 25, 2019 by

by Brad Polumbo, The Federalist: Merely having a different sexual orientation than those around you is no major accomplishment, and it shouldn’t be awkwardly singled out to virtue signal. LGBT icon Ellen DeGeneres once mused, “Do we have to know who’s gay and who’s straight? Can’t we just love everybody and judge them by the car they drive?” This was obviously a joke, but it contained a kernel of wisdom. After coming of age in a time of gay oppression, with her show canceled after she...

The weird cult of Greta Thunberg: she’s not the Green Messiah

Apr 25, 2019 by

by Martin Sewell, Archbishop Cranmer: The activities of those following the latest fashion in political activism have been disrupting the nation’s capital, and yesterday its unlikely spokesperson and poster child, Greta Thunberg, went to Westminster to urge MPs to “do more” about climate change. I speak of fashion deliberately: popular protest is in part an expression of a culture of group identification which Saul Alinski’s Rules for Radicals pressed upon its supporters. “A good tactic is one...

Why the liberal media don’t show sympathy for torched churches, murdered Christians

Apr 25, 2019 by

by Jonathon Van Maren, LifeSite: It is difficult to get surprised by the mainstream media’s utter ignorance of religion, but last week I spotted a headline that almost seemed to be an intentional parody of that fact. It was an Associated Press headline by Nicole Winfield and Colleen Barry, on an article intended to helpfully give context to the events surrounding the fire at the great Paris cathedral: “Tourist mecca Notre Dame also revered as place of worship.” The article with that car crash...

The Sri Lanka bombings are part of an ugly anti-Christian pattern across the globe

Apr 25, 2019 by

by John L Allen Jr, Washington Post: “It is shocking that people who gathered to celebrate Easter together were consciously targeted in this malicious attack,” read a statement from German Chancellor Angela Merkel in response to the bombing of three Christian churches and three high-end hotels Sri Lanka that killed at least 321 people and injured hundreds more. Yet the shocking thing about the carnage is that it is not shocking — and instead forms part of an ugly, predictable global pattern....

The Scruton tapes: an anatomy of a modern hit job

Apr 25, 2019 by

by Douglas Murray, Spectator: How a character assassination unfolded on Twitter. Sometimes a scandal is not just a scandal, but a biopsy of a society. So it is with the assault on Sir Roger Scruton, who in recent weeks has been smeared in the media, fired by the government and had his life’s work assailed. Scruton is the latest, though far from the first victim of the modern outrage mob. […]  But what had the philosopher actually said — and had he been fairly represented? No one who...

Asylum Applications Should be Judged on the Basis of Law not Religious Doctrine

Apr 25, 2019 by

by Ewelina U. Ochab, Oxford Human Rights Hub: In March 2019, a Home Office letter rejecting an asylum application made the headlines of the biggest media outlets in the UK and abroad. It was not the case itself that attracted this attention but the arguments in the letter that have weighed in on the debate whether Christianity is a peaceful religion. The response appears to have failed to consider the facts and apply the law, focusing instead on irrelevant debates about religious doctrine. The...

Where’s the solidarity for Sri Lanka’s Christians?

Apr 25, 2019 by

by Rakib Ehsan, spiked: After Christchurch, world leaders stood with Muslims. Why aren’t they now standing with Christians? The reaction of some to the devastating Islamist-inspired terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday is puzzling to say the least. Following the mosque massacres in Christchurch, political figures across the Western world did not hesitate in accurately describing what they were – white-supremacist terrorist attacks on Muslims in their places of worship during Friday...

Are Christians Privileged or Persecuted?

Apr 24, 2019 by

by Ross Douthat, New York Times: How Western liberalism’s peculiar relationship to its Christian heritage leaves non-Western Christians exposed. The murderous radicals who set off bombs and killed hundreds on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka chose their targets with ideological purpose. Three Catholic churches were bombed, and with them three hotels catering to Western tourists, because often in the jihadist imagination Western Christianity and Western liberal individualism are the conjoined enemies...
