Precious Blood Parish victim to ‘bloody’ vandalism attacks
“When I reported yesterday’s incident, [Surrey RCMP] said they wouldn’t even come out, because it was mischief.”
The container of fake blood was not retrieved as evidence, as it was in the elements and anyone could have picked it up. she said.
“They can’t do anything with it,” said Ruiz. “That’s what they told me.”
In a rare candid moment, German media reported at least 200 cases of damaged churches in the region of Bavaria alone every year.
In addition, attacks on summit crosses are also increasing in the region’s mountains. Crosses on several mountain tops have been toppled and destroyed with axes or saws.
‘Persecuted and Forgotten?’ is the name of the latest report by Aid to the Church in Need. Unfortunately, there is no need for that question mark in the title. Both the persecution and the oblivion are facts. Christians have been victims of the genocide in Isis-controlled parts of Iraq and Syria. In 2011, there were 150,000 Christians in Aleppo and now there are 35,000. Persecution rises in other Muslim countries such as Pakistan, Sudan and Iran. In Nigeria, 1.8 million people have been displaced by Boko Haram.
Today, under the gaze of Jesus Christ suffering on the cross, Quebec’s governing Liberals stood as one and voted into law a “religious neutrality” bill forbidding anyone granting or receiving government services – which includes riding a bus or subway – from wearing a face covering.
As one, the opposition parties stood and opposed it, not out of concern for freedom of expression, but because the bill didn’t go far enough. It didn’t ban turbans and the paraphernalia of other religions from the public square.
Whiny blithering anti-Christian dolt.
A video has emerged of a mass brawl in front of Calgary’s City Hall in Canada where Christian demonstrators clashed with an LGBT “Anti-Fascist Action” group.
It’s amazing how stupid smart people can seem when intent on putting a square peg in a round hole. This is seen continually when certain apologists try to dig Islam out of its hole — the one dug deeper every time there’s another terrorist act.
“[T]hey are far more concerned with the Christians who, as the bearers of a competing proselytizing religion and the masters of a rival universal empire, offered a serious alternative and therefore a potential threat to the Muslim dispensation and the Islamic [inhabited world].”1
You might expect that the murder of Christians would excite particular horror in countries of Christian heritage. Yet almost the opposite seems to be true. Even amid the current slew of Islamist barbarities, the killing of 72 people, 29 of them children, on Easter Day in Lahore, stands out. So does the assault in Yemen in which nuns were murdered and a priest was kidnapped and then, apparently, crucified on Good Friday. But the coverage tends to downplay such stories — there has been much less about Lahore than Brussels, though more than twice as many died — or at least their religious element.
The BBC correspondent in Lahore, Shazheb Jillani, was at pains to emphasise that the victims were not solely Christians but ‘simply Pakistani citizens enjoying a day out in the park with their children’, as if that made it worse. Western European politicians rarely protest about the plight of Christians in Muslim lands or offer to help them. Such Christians are perhaps regarded as a bit of a nuisance in countries Islam dominates.
