I’ve had enough of the “intolerant” criticism!

01/12/2015

While the “tolerance” mantra runs supreme in the United States, and Christians are considered intolerant, it bears considering the truth. With the 2015 Open Doors World Watch List just coming out on January 7th (see excerpts below), comparisons will be very clear and concise.

First, Muslims torture and kill Christians. It is not enough to kill them; they have to devise horrific ways of doing so.  In comparison, Christians do not kill Muslims. In most cases they overlook the monstrous violence done against their fellow Christians, because of the belief that most Muslims are peaceful people.

Let me make this clear – ALMOST ALL Christian people are peaceful, and if they are not, they are going against the very tenets of their own faith. Many Muslims are, indeed, peaceful, loving people, but in being so they are going against many of the tenets of their faith.

Second, in many countries, ruled by Muslims, Christians (and Jews) must choose one of three things: pay a dhimmi (a penalty tax), renounce their faith and become a Muslim, or death.

In comparison, Christians allow Muslims to live amongst them without any penalty tax, or forced conversion, or any threat of torture and death. (Note 40 of the top 50 countries, in which persecution of Christians is the greatest, the persecution is by Muslims.)

Third, Muslims do not want to co-exist with Christians. They will only do so until they have large enough majority, and then the slaughter of Christians will begin.

Christians, on the other hand (with the exception of a rare few), demonstrate the true meaning of tolerance. Per Webster’s Dictionary, “willingness to accept feelings, habits, or beliefs that are different from your own.” It is a noun, by the way, not a verb. It does not mean changing ones beliefs to accommodate another. It means being willing to accept the differences, and co-exist.

Considering these facts, how can Christians be considered anything but generously tolerant?

According to the 2015 Open Doors World Watch List, the Middle East Remains Most Violent While Africa Sees Largest Increase in Persecution of Christians

SANTA ANA, Calif., Jan. 7, 2015—While the year 2014 will go down in history for having the highest level of global persecution of Christians in the modern era, current conditions suggest the worst is yet to come.

Approximately 100 million Christians are persecuted worldwide, making them one of the most persecuted religious groups in the world. Islamic extremism is the main source of persecution in 40 of the 50 countries on the 2015 World Watch List. While persecution can take many forms, Christians throughout the world risk imprisonment, torture, rape and even death as result of their faith.

“Even Christian-majority states are experiencing unprecedented levels of exclusion, discrimination and violence,” said David Curry, president and CEO of Open Doors USA. “The 2015 World Watch List reveals that a staggering number of Christians are becoming victims of intolerance and violence because of their faith. They are being forced to be more secretive about their faith.”
