The Jews suffered immense religious persecution in the Second World War. Now it is the turn of the Christians.

Currently, Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world, but the mainstream media (MSM) seems, largely, to ignore that fact. After the mosque massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand, when a white supremacist slaughtered 50 worshippers, they totally ignored the attacks on Christian churches in Nigeria, where hundreds of worshippers were burned alive by Islamists in the very same week. There were no prayers or candles or global outpouring of grief for them.

In 2019 alone, there were 9 thousand attacks on Christian churches and buildings in 51 countries. More than 5,500 of those attacks occurred in China.

In 2019 the following attacks were recorded:

2,983 Christians were killed for their faith
8,537 Christians were raped or sexually harassed for their faith
9,488 Churches or Christian buildings were attacked
3,711 Christians were unjustly arrested or imprisoned
1,052 Christians were abducted for faith-related reasons
3,315 Christian homes were attacked, burned or destroyed

Let this sink in:

Every day …
8 Christians are killed for their faith.
23 Christians are raped or sexually harassed, (probably more, because rapes are often not reported)
25 Churches are targeted and attacked
10 Christians are unjustly arrested or imprisoned for their faith

Many will not have heard of these atrocities committed against Christians, because our Western MSM prefer to blame the west for every evil in the world, and atrocities against Christians go against this narrative.

But what about governments in so-called Christian countries? What are they doing?

Open Doors is a non-denominational mission supporting persecuted Christians in the world. Why is foreign aid still being given by the UK government to some of the countries on the Open Doors ‘World Watch’ list?

Open Doors’ 2020 World Watch List Top 10, matched with the top 10 recipients of UK aid:

1. North Korea
2. Afghanistan – received £292m in UK aid
3. Somalia – received £106m in UK aid
4. Libya
5. Pakistan – received £305m in UK aid
6. Eritrea
7. Sudan – received £207m in UK aid
8. Yemen – received £260m in UK aid
9. Iran
10. India

And, if you think this is a terrible situation, Christianity is now potentially under threat from the United Nations!

Dozens of nations, almost all of them Islamic states, are pressing the UN to adopt a plan to criminalise Christianity throughout the world. This discrimination is disguised, ironically, in a resolution called ‘Combating Defamation of Religions.’ This plan to criminalise Christianity has been submitted repeatedly since 1999, starting as a plan to ban defamation of Islam. Behind the plan is the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, now known as the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, which has adopted the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam, which states that “all rights are subject to sharia law, and makes sharia law the only source of reference for human rights.” The irony is lost on them. 

Worryingly, 53 UN members voted to adopt the resolution earlier this year, with opposition from the United States and the European Union. How long will it be before it is passed? The American Centre for Law & Justice said in its promotion of its petition. “This is very important to understand. This radical proposal would outlaw Christianity … it would make the proclamation of your faith an international crime.”

The American Centre for Law & Justice, together with its European division, the European Centre for Law & Justice, are working on the issue. The ECL&J submitted arguments recently to the U.N. in opposition to the proposal to institute sharia-based standards around the globe.

The point is, if an organisation of Christian nations had launched a campaign to criminalise Islam, there would have been an international outcry. Islamic governments would have shouted the odds, our own MSM would have been outraged, the liberal elite would have manned the soap boxes, and the threat of terrorist attacks against the embassies of any country subscribing to such a plan would be real. 

But when the threat is to Christianity, the MSM are silent, our leaders continue to give aid to the very countries who are making these proposals to destroy our religious freedom, our culture, and our very way of life. The Pope continues to support Islam; our Arch-Bishops continue to defend a Muslim’s rights, but ignore the attacks on Christian rights.

The United Kingdom was a pioneer in religious freedom, and freedom of religious worship and belief is now enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights, drafted in 1950 by British lawyers and based on Christian principles.
Despite protecting religious belief, not all religions are the same on that point or have the same tolerance of others, however.
We must fight to end the persecution of Christians, both by Islamist militias and Communist authorities on the ground in the nations of Africa, Asia and the Middle East, as well as the high and mighty but intolerant alliance of Islamists and progressives who have infiltrated the governmental and power systems of the world to criminalise Christianity through so-called ‘hate speech’ laws.
