    OK, I admit to a bit of misdirection to get your attention. What really happened is the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia ordered that all churches in Saudi Arabia, and the entire Arabian Peninsula, should be destroyed. Can anyone explain why this is not the top story on every newscast in the world like it would be if my headline was true?

    The left does NOT CARE what happens to Christian beliefs or churches. If you offend a Christian nothing happens. If you offend a Muslim they may kill you. They are cowards.

    Well, that's actually an excellent point. Where is the outrage.....


    Here is another - let me ask those on the left if they still want to proclaim Islam as a peaceful religion and how this fits into that paradigm?

    Liberals hate christians and anyone that has a clear moral code.

    unless they hate America and want to kill Americans.

    then it's all good.



    If I was wrong, then the liberals would admit they were wrong about backing muslim activities in the US. since that will NEVER happen, even when muslims are killing them for not being muslims, I must be right.

    It's not news because, well... it's not news.

    As your article points out, Churches have been banned in Saudi Arabia for a long time now.

    Saudi Arabia and the Arabian Peninsula are not synonymous. This statement will extend the ban beyond Saudi Arabia, and will encourage persecution even beyond the Arabian Peninsula.

    But like you say it’s no big deal since they are burning churches and killing people all the time in that part of the world. So what if a major “spiritual leader” gives a rousing “thumbs up” to the killing.

    But now if Pat Roberson were to endorse the killing of one person, that would be a major news item.
