Global persecution of Christians is becoming a genocide

Much as the great and good of the political-media elite love to sneer at the very idea that Christianity is being uniquely persecuted, the evidence is becoming undeniable. Not that you would know it, from listening to the legacy media. The premeditated slaughter of Christians observing the holiest time of the year is brushed under the carpet. The destruction of churches the length and breadth of Europe goes without mention.

Fortunately, other, more intrepid sources are compiling the evidence in such damning clarity that even some of the media are starting to grudgingly notice. Quote:

The persecution and genocide of Christians across the world is worse today “than at any time in history,” and Western governments are failing to stop it, a report from a Catholic organization said.

The study by Aid to the Church in Need said the treatment of Christians has worsened substantially in the past two years compared with the two years prior, and has grown more violent than any other period in modern times.

“Not only are Christians more persecuted than any other faith group, but ever-increasing numbers are experiencing the very worst forms of persecution,” the report said. End of quote.

But, hey, tell us more about how someone wearing a hijab got shouted at on a bus, or some bloke in a dress got called “sir”. That’s real persecution, fella. Who cares about a bunch of Charlie Churchies in Nigeria being incinerated? Quote:

The report examined the plight of Christians in China, Egypt, Eritrea, India, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, North Korea, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria and Turkey over the period lasting from 2015 until 2017. The research showed that in that time, Christians suffered crimes against humanity, and some were hanged or crucified. The report found that Saudi Arabia was the only country where the situation for Christians did not get worse, and that was only because the situation couldn’t get any worse than it already was…The report put special focus on Middle Eastern countries like Iraq and Syria, where the authors argued Christians would have been entirely wiped out if it weren’t for military action and the assistance of Christian humanitarian organizations, like Aid to the Church in Need.

The report…detailed attacks against Coptic Christians in Egypt and monasteries burned in Syria.

In Africa, the report focused on countries like Sudan, where the government ordered that churches be destroyed, and Nigeria, where ISIS-affiliated groups like Boko Haram have led a surge in attacks on Christians. In Eritrea, hundreds of Christians have been rounded up and imprisoned over the past year because of their faith. End of quote.


Eqypt, Nigeria, Eritrea, Iran, Irag, Pakistan, Sudan, Syria, Turkey…it’s almost like there’s a pattern, there. Of the three Abrahamic faiths, the one that whines the loudest about being “oppressed” actually seems to be the one most violently oppressing the others.

Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office has also commissioned a report.

The evidence is damning: this is not just oppression, this is genocide.


Persecution on grounds of religious faith is a global phenomenon that is growing in scale and intensity…Though it is impossible to know the exact numbers of people persecuted for their faith, based on reports from different NGOs, it is estimated that one third of the world’s population suffers from religious persecution in some form, with Christians being the most persecuted group.

…Furthermore, the evidence suggests that acts of violence and other intimidation against Christians are becoming more widespread. The reporting period revealed an increase in the severity of anti-Christian persecution. In parts of the Middle East and Africa, the “vast scale” of the violence and its perpetrators’ declared intent to eradicate the Christian community has led to several Parliamentary declarations in recent years that the faith group has suffered genocides according to the definition adopted by the UN. End of quote.

But why would the media bother reporting an actual genocide? After all, there’s probably a white kid smiling somewhere whom they have to hunt down and publicly shame. Quote:

The global persecution of Christians is “an urgent human rights issue that remains underreported…but it rarely gets much attention in the Western media. Even many churchmen in the West turn a blind eye.” Journalist John L Allen wrote in The Spectator: “[The] global war on Christians remains the greatest story never told of the early 21st century”…Former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey said western governments have been “strangely and inexplicably reluctant to confront” persecution of Christians in the Middle East. End of quote.


It’s not “strange and inexplicable” in the least. Western governments are too gutless to say anything that might upset their new favourites.

Credit where credit’s due, though: the Guardian, of all the legacy media, is tackling this modern-day genocide.
