Dan Proft: The Slaughter of Christian Innocents

“Christianity under attack? Sri Lanka church bombings stroke far-right anger in the West.”

That was the headline in the Washington Post the day after the world learned the Easter Sunday church bombers were radical Islamist terrorists.

It seems the Post isn’t sure if Christianity is under attack. But it is sure only the “far-right” is upset about the massacre of “Easter worshippers,” as they term them.

Historically, the Left has used perceived persecution to accrue power—so they are reticent to have Christians benefit from actual persecution, thus they use the label “Easter worshippers”—as if it’s a spring festival of sorts.

This is how identity politics works and it is at work in the coverage of the slaughter of Christian innocents.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and leading Democrats all used “Easter worshippers” language, generating much-deserved pushback.

No atrocity is so great as to prevent the Left’s pursuit of power.

Michael Medved: A Message to Representative Omar

Imagine if conservatives had attacked freshman Congress member Ilhan Omar by questioning her loyalty to the United States and suggesting that she cared more about her Muslim faith or her Somali homeland than she did about America.

Democrats along with all right-thinking people would have been outraged at the bigoted nature of such an assault, but Omar herself has repeatedly slammed her pro-Israel colleagues on a similarly unacceptable basis. Her most recent comments claim that Israel supporters “push for allegiance to a foreign country.”

This is no more appropriate than prior slanders against Catholic Americans for “allegiance” to the Vatican over loyalty to America, or potential claims against Omar and Muslim colleagues for giving devotion to Islam above the Constitution.

It’s always okay to challenge the judgment of Jewish or Christian supporters of Israel, but it’s never appropriate to question their patriotism.

Albert Mohler: Theology: Back in the Headlines

Billy Graham

Theology roared back into the headlines recently but in this case it wasn’t Christian theology but Islamic theology. This has to do with the tragic attack that took place at a mosque in the Sinai Peninsula, where Egyptian officials report that over 300 persons were killed in a mass attack.

What most major news outlets took days to realize is that the reason that members of the Islamic State felt theologically justified in killing other Muslims was that these particular Muslims were Sufis—a branch of Islam considered heretical by most Muslims.

You cannot possibly interpret or understand this horrible news coming out of Egypt without acknowledging the reality of the theological. The problem is that those behind the secular worldview are absolutely certain that theology will virtually disappear, everywhere, but a news story like this reminds us that it hasn’t happened everywhere, yet. And furthermore, theology hasn’t disappeared even very close to the home of the New York Times.

They just think it has.

Albert Mohler: Senator Sanders vs. Religious Liberty

Billy Graham

Bernie Sanders recently announced that he will oppose President Trump’s nominee for assistant budget director, Russell Vought, because Vought penned a blog in which he said that Muslims “stand condemned” because they have rejected Jesus Christ.

Vought’s post was a defense of his alma mater, Wheaton College, a Christian institution, and what he articulated was nothing other than historic orthodox biblical Christianity.

Senator Sanders made his position quite clear: “I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who is what this country is supposed to be about.”

Here you have a sitting United States senator rejecting a presidentially appointed candidate simply on the basis of the fact that he had the temerity to write an article defending historic Christian doctrine.

Senator Sanders would no doubt say that he’s a staunch defender of the separation of church and state, and yet what he did here was nothing less than an absolute violation of religious liberty.

Michael Medved: Britain’s Most Serious Religious Problem

Opioid

The horrific Manchester terror attack raises uncomfortable questions about the imperfect integration of Britain’s Muslim minority.

A series of such brutal incidents in the United Kingdom involved native-born British subjects, not recent refugees. And despite some fears of Islam’s surging influence, the most recent numbers show that self-identified Muslims still comprise only 5 percent of the UK population. The far more worrisome numbers involve the declining percentage who say they are Christian—down from 72 percent to just 59 percent today.

Those who hope that America and the United Kingdom will maintain their distinctive cultural identities are right to worry about Christianity’s declining numbers. But we should remember that those losses reflect disenchantment and disaffiliation far more than the growth of Islam or any other rival faith.

Albert Mohler: The Crisis Of Islamic Extremism

Billy Graham

President Donald Trump is currently engaged in his first international trip as president.

The contrast between the current president and his predecessor has been immediately apparent inasmuch as President Trump has been willing to use the word Islam in connection with the struggle against terrorism whereas President Barack Obama was categorically unwilling to do so.

As the Washington Post reported, President Trump has forcefully summoned the Muslim world to confront “the crisis of Islamic extremism.”

In the president’s address in Saudi Arabia, he said “Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: Barbarism will deliver you no glory—piety to evil will bring you no dignity. If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be condemned.”

The president repeatedly used the stem word Islam, and he also used the word in a way that as you might expect brought criticism from the liberal western press.
