US Archbishop Candid About Islamic Persecution of Christians

By Gudrun Schultz
WASHINGTON, DC, United States, December 16, 2005 ( - Archbishop Charles Chaput, of the diocese of Denver, broke free from politically correct restrictions to speak openly about growing Moslem persecution of Christians, in an address to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, of which he is a member.

“Anti-Christian discrimination and violence seem to be growing throughout the Islamic world,” said Archbishop Chaput. “In the past several years, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and even Moslem-controlled areas of the heavily Catholic Philippines have all seen extraordinary acts of bloodshed against Christians.”

The Archbishop expressed his concern over consistent lack of media attention given to acts of violence against Christians.

“Three things distinguish anti-Christian persecution and discrimination around the world. First, it’s ugly. Second, it’s growing. And third, the mass media generally ignore or downplay its gravity.”

Archbishop Chaput referred to media coverage of recent bloody persecution in Indonesia of the Christian minority, by Moslem extremists, as an example of media inaccuracy and neglect

“News reports tend to describe Indonesia’s violence as generically “sectarian,” as if Moslem and Christian extremists were mutually responsible. This is troubling and flatly false,” said Archbishop Chaput. “The bloodshed is overwhelmingly provoked and carried out by Islamic militants against the Christian minority. Over the past decade, hundreds of thousands of persons have been displaced and thousands killed in this anti-Christian campaign of violence.”

The attacks referred to by the Archbishop included the beheading of three Christian teen-age girls in late October by Moslem extremists, on the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia.

The Archbishop ended his address with a warning that localized acts of violence against Christians by extremists threaten relationships between Christians and Muslims worldwide, “something neither community of faith can afford.”

Typical Muslim: Act as a human for once

He's hit the nail on the head. Boatloads of muslims invade Indonesian christian villages and slaughter them with machine guns and machetes. This gets reported as "religious tensions". Did you know that the Rwandan genocide was a muslim-on-christian genocide? It was years after it happened that I found out. The media reported it as a simple tribal conflict. And Sudan, Sudan! TWO MILLION CHRISTIANS KILLED IN THE BIGGEST HOLOCAUST SINCE WWII. On Tee Vee it was called "Civil War". But the minute Sudanese Arabs started attacking black moslems in Darfur, the media began shrieking "Genocide, Genocide! They're killing their fellow muslims!"

To the media, muslims killing christians is considered natural, normal, and healthy. Only when muslims attack each other or -- God forbid -- christians fight back, does the Tee Vee news start to howl and scream bloody murder...

As natural as Bosnia-Herzigovina was, and wasn't Hitler Christian?

Get your facts straight moron, Rowanda is a predominantly Christian nation, Muslims represent 7-10%. Prominent Catholic and Protestant leaders (maybe not Christian enough in Coptic books?) orchestrated and joined the killing spree of some 800,000 Rowandans. Unless you meant Congo, another predominantly Christian nation, 50% Catholic, 20% Protestant, and 10% Muslim, where 2 million Congolese were murdered, and counteless maimed and raped.

The fact is Christians have enough blood on their hand to turn the world's oceans, seas and rivers red, but maybe that is the plan. Bloody think about it, you worship a cross, an object of death, you drink from the alleged blood of Jesus, as repuslive a concept as it is, so enough with this self righteous crap, you guys make bloody Dracula look like Mickey Mouse.

Muslims, when you read your stupid, hate promoting Quran and Hadiths, you turn into blood thirsty animals. Those who saved the Muslims in Bosnia, were not from Saudi Arabia, but from the 'Christian" West. Give us one example in history where Muslims stood and supported the truth rather than defending their stupid ideology of hate and terror. Muhammad himself said " I was made victorious through terror, and I was sent with the sword so that there will be none worshipped but Allah". Muslims are the last to talk about blooshed, because their hands are full of blood ever since their bloodthirsty so called prophet of humanity "I mean insanity" claimed to be a messenger of Allah " I mean Vampire"

"As natural as Bosnia-Herzigovina was"

Yes, my point exactly. It was natural for blood-sucking Turks to invade South-Eastern Europe and force Islam on the people by the usual methods. It was natural for the KLA to terrorize the Orthodox Christian population of Kosovo. But when Karadzic and Milosevic tried to take these lands back from the People Without Free Will (muslims), now THAT was inexcusable.

What the heck is a Person Without Free Will trying to debate on a forum for anyway? Assuming you could be convinced of anything true, you would be killed in accordance with Sharia law. So be careful not to think to hard, Muslim.

"give it up cross worshipper" <---- idiotic Islamic prespective of the Cross. Go get a life stone whorshipper (Stone = the black stone in Kaaba, Mecca that resembles the vagina)
to take a look at the beautiful stone Muslims pay thousands of dollars to go around in circles , visit this link

see how they kiss the vagina like stone...may be that's why licking and sucking is halal in Islam as your imam qaradawi says
