European Churches: Vandalized, Defecated On, and Torched ‘Every Day’

In France, two churches are desecrated every day on average. According to PI-News, a German news site, 1,063 attacks on Christian churches or symbols (crucifixes, icons, statues) were registered in France in 2018. This represents a 17 percent increase compared to the previous year (2017), when 878 attacks were registered — meaning that such attacks are only going from bad to worse.

Christian Living In A Muslim County ‘143 Times More Likely’ to Be Killed By A Muslim Than Vice Versa

[T]here will be no attempt to place today’s killings “in perspective,” as is invariably the case after Muslim terrorists strike Western targets—in Nice, Paris, Berlin etc.—killing hundreds of people. That “perspective” should include the fact that some 30 million Muslims reside in the Western world today (many more on their own reckoning), which makes the probability of any one of them falling victim to a deplorable attack in any given year roughly one in ten million.

Is Ireland the most anti-Christian country now?

The government is becoming increasingly uncomfortable with crucifixes in hospitals. From John Waters at First Things:

The advocates of this “pluralism” imply that every conceivable outlook in this category is being accorded equal recognition and respect. But the only perspective that is really esteemed and provided for in this new dispensation is that of the disgruntled skeptic, nihilist, or cynic. Those eschewing beliefs on an ideological basis, or those possessing different beliefs of a distinctly un-Irish character, will be allowed to impose their unbeliefs/anti-beliefs/alternative beliefs on Christian believers, who must agree to become the hole in the doughnut. There is an irony in the fact that only those Christians with real beliefs will be affected—lukewarm or Sunday Christians will simply shrug and turn up the TV. In the end, at some of the most vulnerable moments in their lives, Christians will be deprived of the solace offered by the sight of the crucified Christ—and this our Taoiseach describes as “diversity.” …

Rod Liddle, an estimable colleague who writes for The Spectator, not long ago voted Canada “the most batsh*t crazy country in the world.” He was wrong: Ireland takes that crown, as well as the one for unequalled liberal hypocrisy, the one for the most implacable indifference to the consequences of Cultural Marxist insanity, and, above all, for the title Most Anti-Christian Country on Planet Earth. More.

Reality check: Whatever. Ireland only mattered when it was swimming against the tide. Now it will be swallowed up in the Eurocracy and be just another package destination.

‘A Win for Freedom’: Colorado Drops Second Case Against Christian Baker

On the same day Phillips won a 7-2 decision in the U.S. Supreme Court, June 26, that he did not have to bake and design a cake for a same-sex wedding, a lawyer asked Masterpiece Cakeshop to bake a gender transition cake that was pink on the inside and blue on the outside.

The Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which had previously targeted Phillips for fines regarding the same-sex wedding cake, again found probable cause that state law required him to bake and design the gender-transition cake.

Witchcraft moves to the mainstream in America as Christianity declines – and has Trump in its sights

Witchcraft is thriving in the US, with an estimated 1.5 million Americans now identifying as witches – more than the total number of Presbyterians. As Christianity declines across the country, paganism has swung to the mainstream, with witchcraft paraphernalia for sale on every high street and practises normalised across popular culture. In the past two years, it has also become darkly politicised.

Middle Eastern Christians Are Under Threat. How do They Feel about Jews and Israel?

On his visit to the Middle East last January, Vice-President Mike Pence planned to meet with local Christian leaders and to follow up on the promise he had made just a few months earlier to suffering Christian communities in Iraq and Syria: “help is on the way.” To his dismay, not a single Christian leader agreed to meet with him. The reason: the Trump administration’s announcement that it would relocate the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
