Korans and Bibles

A blog that helps support persecuted Christians recently noted that “while Western leaders have rightfully denounced the Koran-burning, they have failed to criticize the endless persecution of Christians by radical Muslims.”

Indeed, throughout the world, from Nigeria to Egypt, from Afghanistan and Pakistan to Indonesia–allegedly devout Muslims slaughter nonviolent Christians in the name of their religion. Yet all of these incidents together haven’t been reported as much as the few that have resulted from the Koran-burning in the US. We can “rightly denounce” that action and still denounce on a whole other level the savage retribution again Christians who had nothing to do with the burning, and the many unremarked persecutions of other Christians who simply want to practice their own Religion of the Book in peace. —J.
