article by Alex Newman we once again address the fact that the United States of America is directly responsible for the wholesale slaughter and displacement of Christians in the Middle East. Patriotic (and Christian) taxpayers are financing this every pay day and most of these coerced financiers don't seem to care very much about it...which fact continues to astound us.
This unspeakable evil, carried out by America and its "loyal ally" in the Middle East is, by far, the most shameful episode in the entire sorry history of this country, a country awash in shameful episodes (do we need to name them?). Far, far worse than the relatively benign institution of slavery in the 19th century, the US-backed murder of Christians is an affront to Heaven that, we know, will not last forever. God has only so much patience.
A nation that will not read great books, or sit in quiet contemplation and reflect upon serious matters, is a nation that is nearing its exhaustion point. The bread and circuses provided by the entertainment industry keeps Americans forever in thrall of trivialities, stupidities and concupiscence. It keeps us numb from the dreadful realities that are facing us. The Snowden Affair has awakened a few people but there are still millions in this country who are oblivious to the spectre that is fast approaching. It has often been said that just prior to falling into a police state most citizens are completely unaware of the signs that were there for everyone to see. This perfectly describes the USA of 2013. So as their brothers are being killed on a daily basis in places like Syria we look the other way or, worse, we let our minds absorb propaganda fed to us from all directions.
Atrocity after atrocity is committed, but we still keep silent. We must ask our little band of readers why this is so.
But as the United States policy does indeed entail the annihilation of Christians in its own country (with ever more anti Christian laws) and the rest of the world there is another power on earth that seems to be going in the opposite direction. This is also astonishing.
Let us do what we can to inform our neighbors of what mayhem is being committed in their names and at the same time let us do what we can to help these pitiful people facing the blood lust of Washington and its loyal ally.
In any case, doing God's work whenever and however we can is better than the alternative which our tax dollars are contributing to.
