WDAM Viewpoint- War on Christianity

Posted: Updated:

February 14, 2012

The Catholic Church and other denominations are calling the Obama administrations contraception mandates a war on religion.  Well, depending on how strictly you view the 1st amendment those concerns may be well founded.  But the real war on religion is, in fact, a war on Christianity and it is being conducted in deadly earnest in countries around the world.  Newsweek magazine devoted its front page last week to this terrible situation.  While we, in this country, go out of our way---sometimes way out of our way to defend the Islamic faith---in many Islamic countries Christians are being attacked and murdered for their faith. Churches have been burned and Christians murdered in just the past few months in Nigeria, Sudan, and Pakistan. In Iraq since 2003 more than 900 Iraqi Christians have been killed in Baghdad alone. Where you might ask is the media coverage of this genocide?  And where is the outrage…not just among the Muslim leaders but our leaders here at home?   I'm Jim Cameron.  Write and let us know what you think.
