The MSM tells of Muslims being so persecuted. Facts are they are persecuted mostly by other Muslims.

The truth????
Christians the most persecuted group in world for second year: Study | Fox News

30 Years ago, Christians made up more than 40% of North Africa. Now, by some estimates, it is less than 5%

The church leaders said that "over 6,000 persons, mostly children, women and the aged have been maimed and killed in night raids by armed Fulani herdsmen," which is prompting their cry to the government of Nigeria "to stop this senseless and blood shedding in the land and avoid a state of complete anarchy where the people are forced to defend themselves." -from the link posted by Joe Shoe

I don't understand what the people need before they are "forced" to defend themselves, except maybe the church guy preaching about turning the other cheek the whole time the other side butchers them.

We have national leaders persecuting Christians here. And the same leaders tell those same Christians to "turn the other cheek" when confronted by Islamic extremists. because it is the "Christian thing to do."

We had a President who's father, of whom he dreamed and worshipped, was involved in the massacre of over 30,000 Christians in Somalia.

Who did not want to be speaking as President with any Christian crosses or symbols. Yet spoke of the scriptures when it was convenient for his agenda.

The Liberal progressive corrosion of our nation's core values has allowed Christianity to be placed in the mindset of our government as a terrorist cult.

Literally presumed guilty as an enemy of the STATE.

Keep you loved one's close my friends,,,; and your powder dry. It's going to get worse before it gets better. Something I only say with cautious optimism.

I'm beginning to think "turn the other cheek" will come to mean to point one's butt cheek at the enemy, followed by the words, "Kiss my ass!", before overwhelming retaliation begins.

As evidenced by the attacks on the faith of Justice Amy Barrett by the left in their attempt to vilify her should she be nominated by the President.

Why should such attacks matter?
A position on the Supreme Court demands a keen mind and devotion to the law. It should not be a contest of popularity.

Either Barrett is qualified or she is not.


When so called experts say we should have a woman's perspective on the court, are they appealing to the sanctity and reason of the law or the emotion of the populace?

Telling me she is a Roman catholic is no different than telling me she is an atheist. Again, either she is qualified or she is not.
