Washington Times calls for political anmesty for Christians in Muslim countries


I’ve never been one to buy into the idea of perceiving oneself primarily as a member of a “persecuted” group.  As I noted here recently (Dec. 4), Christian denominations sometimes focus on members of their faith in various parts of the world as persecuted groups.  But so does everyone else in the Middle East. All sides are “guilty” of this.  Jimmy Carter once called this a kind of apartheid.

The Washington Times, nonetheless, has an important editorial Christmas Day, “Being Christian is a death sentence: America needs to give shelter to persecuted believers from Muslim lands,” link here.
