Senator Rand Paul on the Global Slaughter of Christians

Ray Nothstine blog.acton.org October 14, 2013

“From Boston to Zanzibar, there is a worldwide war on Christianity,” declared Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky). He made the comments in a speech discussing the slaughter of Christians at the 2013 Values Voter Summit on October 11. The Kentucky Senator added,

Across the globe, Christians are under attack, almost as if we lived in the Middle Ages or if we lived under early Pagan Roman rule. . . It’s almost as if that is happening again throughout the Middle East.

Last month I noted that “We are living through a repaganizing of the West that was transformed and lifted up by Christendom.” Paul calls out the president and media for ignoring the slaughter, but in reality most people in the West are not paying any attention to the vicious attacks against Christians around the world. While this is in part due to the larger media blackout, the truth of the matter is that because of secularization, there is little spiritual discernment or clarity to recognize great evil. Perhaps the entertainment culture that fuels many American churches, driven by the perceived need to compete with the culture, exacerbates the ignorance on this issue too. Recently, Kristen Powers and Mollie Hemingway offered important articles highlighting the current plight of Christians around the world.

Villagers said they heard several foreign  accents among the rebels, with many feared to be  Al Qaeda fighters imported  into the conflict. A villager said he heard  mainly Tunisian, Libyan, Moroccan  and Chechen dialects.

In a video posted online, a rebel commander  shouted at the camera: ‘We  cleansed Maaloula from all the Assad dogs and all  his thugs.’ But  Syria’s state news agency claimed the rebels had withdrawn and  the  regime had regained the village, saying: ‘The army inflicted heavy  losses  in the ranks of the terrorists.’
