Christians in the Middle East are indeed being slaughtered. Beheaded. None have suffered as much as the monks, nuns, and people of faith there.
I have shamefully been silent here on this blog about this matter, but can no longer be. Please, really look into the “rebels vs government” conflicts because many times it isn’t against anyone other than Christian and different religious denominations who are not the Orthodox Islamists that many people have called, from the beginning, “extremists”.
The truth is, the “extremists” are not radical at all but following what their faith dictates as correct and proper worship and retaliation. Mohammad himself taught conversion by the sword and encouraged beheading of “infidels”.
The “infidels” are none other than those who are not of Islamic faith.
