"One Christian Slaughtered Every Five Minutes"

Throughout September, as more Christians were slaughtered and persecuted for their religion -- not just by the Islamic State but by "everyday" Muslims from all around the world -- increasing numbers of people and organizations called for action. Meanwhile, those best placed to respond -- chief among them U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis -- did nothing.

"Why, we ask the western world, why not raise one's voice over so much ferocity and injustice?" asked Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, the head of the Italian Bishops Conference.

Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarch Gregory III said: "I do not understand why the world does not raise its voice against such acts of brutality."

U.S. Condemns 'Heinous' Beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians by ISIS

The U.S. condemned the videotaped beheading of 21 Egyptian Christians kidnapped in Libya, explicitly blaming ISIS-affiliated terrorists Sunday for the "wanton killing of innocents."

The Egyptians, dressed in orange jump suits, were beheaded after being forced down on the ground on a beach. An early caption in the video says the location is "Wilayat Tarabulus by the Mediterranean Sea," which suggests that it was filmed near Tripoli.

Each of the victims, who are all male, is paired with a masked, knife-wielding terrorist and, after a brief statement by the ISIS leader, they are all beheaded.

2 Y/O Girl Dies From Burns After Muslim Extremist Wearing 'Jihad' Shirt Torches Church in Indonesia

A 2 year-old girl has died after suffering burns on the majority of her body following an attack by an alleged Islamic extremist on a church in Borneo, Indonesia.

According to ABC News, Ade Intan Marbun was one of four young children injured after a man - identified by police as Juhanda, a.k.a. Jo bin Muhammad Aceng, a 32 year old ex-convict for terrorism - threw a Molotov cocktail from his passing motorbike into Oikumene Church in Samarinda, the provincial capital of E. Kalimantan province. The man was reportedly wearing a shirt emblazoned with the phrase, "Jihad, Way of Life."

East Kalimantan police spokesman Fajar Setiawan said the toddler, who was playing on the church lawn with several other children at the time of the attack, died from complications after suffering burns to more than three quarters of her body.

Easter and religious hypocrites: Western civilization’s Christian foundations are everywhere

image from http://www.almanac.com/sites/default/files/users/Almanac%20Staff/easter-calendar-cross_full_width.jpgIt’s Easter and if you listen closely, you can hear the silence from the hypocrites who say religion has no place in public life while enjoying another religiously motivated holiday.

They’re the ones who say religion only causes harm, or that religion has been a cancer on society but in fact, our western civilization is built upon religious traditions.

There is a Judeo-Christian tradition underpinning western civilization, specifically, a Christian one.

Nigerian women and girls rescued from Boko Haram raped by officials, soldiers, Human Rights Watch says

Nigerian government officials, soldiers and police are raping and sexually exploiting women and girl refugees from Boko Haram, instead of protecting them, Human Rights Watch said in a report Monday.

Shortages of food, medicine and clothing in refugee camps compounds the vulnerability of victims who include many unaccompanied girls and women orphaned and widowed by the 7-year uprising, the New York-based organization said.

In July, it documented the rapes and sexual exploitation of 37 females, including four who said they were drugged and then abused. Some described having sex in exchange for food for their children, including a woman at a camp that had received no food for about seven weeks.
