As Christians Are Persecuted at Near Genocide Levels, Pope Wishes Muslims a Happy Ramadan
Despite the fact that Christians are being prosecuted at levels approaching genocide – a fact that has been recognized by Western governments – Pope Francis wished Muslims a “fruitful celebration of Ramadan” in a recent press release.
When Ramadan, the most sacred time of year for Islam, began on May 5, the Pope said:
Dear Muslim Brothers and Sisters,
The month of Ramadan with its dedication to fasting, prayer and almsgiving, is also a month for strengthening the spiritual bonds we share in Muslim-Christian friendship. I am pleased, therefore, to take this opportunity to wish you a peaceful and fruitful celebration of Ramadan.
We Muslims and Christians are called to open ourselves to others, knowing and recognizing them as brothers and sisters. In this way, we can tear down walls raised out of fear and ignorance and seek together to build bridges of friendship that are fundamental for the good of all humanity. We thus cultivate in our families and in our political, civil and religious institutions, a new way of life where violence is rejected, and the human person respected.
In order to respect diversity, dialogue must seek to promote every person’s right to life, to physical integrity, and to fundamental freedoms, such as freedom of conscience, of thought, of expression and of religion. This includes the freedom to live according to one’s beliefs in both the private and public spheres. In this way, Christians and Muslims – as brothers and sisters – can work together for the common good.
Muslims wished Christians a happy Easter by blowing themselves up inside Sri Lankan Christian churches, killing more than 250 people. Pope Francis denounced the attacks, but has utterly refused to recognize the plight of Christians around the world, particularly in the Middle East. Christians are now the most persecuted religious group on earth.
Big League Politics reported:
While Democrats like to whine constantly about the alleged victimhood of the various special interest groups under their banner, they simultaneously add to the persecution the world’s most victimized group: Christians.
According to a Pew Research study released last week, Christians are the world’s most harassed group for their faith. They are harassed in an astounding 144 countries, although this inconvenient truth is usually glossed over by the fake news media.
The most recent data comes from 2016, and it shows that Christians were persecuted in 18 more nations than in 2015. Muslims received harassment in 142 countries, as Pew ranks Islam as the second most persecuted religious faith.
