They Are Suffering

Vatican says world ignores Christians in Mideast This is true, I have heard first hand of how Christians have been driven from their lands by Muslims for no other reason than they are not Muslims. I have nothing against peaceful Islam but this is unfair and wrong.

From the article:
A working paper released during Pope Benedict XVI's pilgrimage to Cyprus to prepare for a crisis summit of Middle East bishops in Rome in October also cites the "extremist current" unleashed by the rise of "political Islam" as a threat to Christians.

The paper said that the line between religion and politics is blurred in Muslim countries, "relegating Christians to the precarious position of being considered non-citizens, despite the fact that they were citizens of their countries long before the rise of Islam."

"The key to harmonious living between Christians and Muslims is to recognize religious freedom and human rights," it said.

  1. Driven from their lands? How about beheaded, mutilated (tongues cut out, acid thrown on them, scalped, etc.), and stoned to death. The religion of peace is a bit less than peaceful toward Christians . . . and Jews.
