    International Days of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

    http://idop.org/web/

    My pastor dedicates his entire message to this subject once a year. While I pray for persecuted Christians, I realize that these people are being persecuted because of the type of government that rules the nation that they live in (Islamic or Communist). Most if not all of these Muslim or communist countries on the list were at one time under Christianized British or French rule.

    It's time for another Crusades.

    Although a communist/atheist country is once again the #1 oppressor of Christianity, Islamic countries disproportionately are represented in the top 50.

    Wrong as in Christians aren't being persecuted in communist/atheist and Muslim countries?

    Given that Christ never advocated the use of violence as a means to justify an end, why would modern Christians think otherwise?

    Is fighting wars to ensure that everybody has the freedom of religion (a libertarian principle) just? That's the question.

    I would never expect a godless Libertarian to fight in order to preserve my God given right to religious freedom. Besides, you Libertarians are anti-war (note I didn't say anti-violence, as there is much violence, disease and death behind the doctrine that you embrace).

    What about just a faithful member of the United States armed forces?

    While Islam has a very long history of Judeo-Christian persecution and imperialism, it was US President Jimmy Carter that destabilized the Middle East when he was instrumental in overthrowing the pro American Shah of Iran.

    Iran and the Shah: What Really Happened

    Iran’s Chaotic Descent
    On February 1, 1979, with U.S. officials joining the welcoming committee, Ayatollah Khomeini arrived in Iran amid media fanfare. Although counter-demonstrations, some numbering up to 300,000 people, erupted in Iran, the Western press barely mentioned them.

    Khomeini had taken power, not by a constitutional process, but violent revolution that ultimately claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. Numerous of his opponents were executed, usually without due process, and often after brutal torture. Teheran’s police officers — loyal to the Shah — were slaughtered. At least 1,200 Imperial Army officers, who had been instructed by General Huyser not to resist the revolution, were put to death. Before dying, many exclaimed, “God save the King!” “On February 17,” reported du Berrier, “General Huyser faced the first photos of the murdered leaders whose hands he had tied and read the descriptions of their mutilations.” At the year’s end, the military emasculated and no longer a threat, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. More Iranians were killed during Khomeini’s first month in power than in the Shah’s 37-year reign. Yet Carter, Ted Kennedy, and the Western media, who had brayed so long about the Shah’s alleged “human rights” violations, said nothing. Mass executions and torture elicited no protests. Seeing his country thus destroyed, the exiled Shah raged to an adviser: “Where are the defenders of human rights and democracy now?” Later, the Shah wrote that there was

    not a word of protest from American human rights advocates who had been so vocal in denouncing my “tyrannical” regime! It was a sad commentary, I reflected, that the United States, and indeed most Western countries, had adopted a double standard for international morality: anything Marxist, no matter how bloody and base, is acceptable.

    If the West decided to Crusade against Islam it would be a Crusade for secularism. I thought ACW of all people would understand that the West worships degeneracy.
