For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Teenage Convert To Christianity Asks Obama About The Double Standard

It only took a full two months after the story appeared on Pam Geller's blog, Atlas Shrugs, before any major TV news source picked up on it.  Enter Fox News.  Now at last, some attention is being shown to one small part of a much larger issue that is religious persecution in the Muslim world.

In the past decade or so there has been a wave of converts to Christianity in the Middle East and South Central Asia (India, Pakistan, etc...) resulting in "persecutions, assassinations, and widespread church bombings."  I posted on a recent wave of these last week, as they appear to be happening more frequently and with more ferocity.  But you won't hear about these on the news.  You won't read about them in the newspapers, either.  No one in the MSM (main stream media) wants to sound the alarm or deal with them in any way in order to avoid the appearance of xenophobia.  Christians, Hindus, Jewish people, and others are paying a high price for such political correctness, as the Muslims lay waste to peaceful houses of worship of faiths different than their own.  Funny the MSM doesn't accuse THEM of xenophobia.  Perhaps this has more to do with fear of reprisal than political correctness....

What has anyone to fear from a religion of peace?
