That's really shitty. I had a buddy in school who was Coptic Orthodox from Egypt, so the thought that he could have gone gone back there and been murdered in what he would have thought to be a place of comfort and sanctuary is immensely discomforting.

The bible promised us we'd be hated. This is why we go to the lord for strength so as not to be discouraged.

Ha. Muslims with their religion of peace are at it again.

Even in America Christians are hated or made fun of but god forbid you do the same with Islam and yet, most of the ones who abused and killed Christians are Muslims. This is like the crusades all over again except that Christians have no one to fight for them

It's not wrong. I mean after all it is one of the biggest religions in the world and lots of people hate it so it makes sense to me.

25% of the world is indeed Christian of one denomination or another, and ISIS is a major power. In any case, 90,000 deaths seems a bit low considering averages.


Though maybe there is some false element. Groups? Groups? Not religions, but entire group discrimination?

It used to be 25% but now it's 31% while Islam is 22%. Don't see why anyone considers either dangerous if there are so many of them and the fact that 7.5 billion people are still alive on Earth.

By the way... love your profile picture!

This has been our status for some time now, between socialist China / Korea and the various Muslim countries. Socialist countries like China & N Korea are inherently anti-theist, with the whole 'god of the state' thing. Islamic law mandates non-Muslims submit and be second class citizens, convert, or die, which is totally equivalent to Buddhism, Christianity, and Hinduism amirite guyz?

This has been the state for some time and Western countries, with their strong secular/anti-theist demographics, have mostly ignored it. There's been a lot of discussion as to why; the most common conclusion being that in the social marxist hierachy Christians are teh villainz.

I do feel sorry for those who lost their lives, it is truly sad. But I take no pity on Christianity itself. The criticism and resent it receives is rightly deserved.

I looked at his post a whole bunch of times. Up and down. Didn't find anything claiming or even alluding to the idea that Christians never hate. Looks like you're defeating a point she never made.
