Chris­tians don’t de­serve per­se­cu­tion

The Compass - - EDITORIAL -

Per­se­cu­tion! Web­ster says, “ha­rass per­sis­tently, es­pe­cially make suf­fer for di­ver­gent prin­ci­ples.”

A Chris­tian flag re­cently was raised in St. John’s at Con­fed­er­a­tion Build­ing; a type of com­pli­men­tary flag­pole. Then it was re­moved be­cause of the ire of sev­eral groups, which I needn’t name — you know who you are.

An Angli­can min­is­ter was quoted to say on an in­ter­view that the flag was raised to pro­mote an aware­ness of per­se­cuted Chris­tians over­seas. Then as his point was proved, the bomb went off, on Easter Sun­day, in a play­ground over there!

How ironic is that? It was done as an af­front to Chris­tians ob­serv- ing their faith on the death and res­ur­rec­tion of Je­sus.

These types of de­struc­tive peo­ple have no sense of love, tol­er­ance, em­pa­thy or kind­ness. This was a play­ground, chil­dren, fam­i­lies. Wake up Chris­tians — stop be­ing a silent ma­jor­ity and fly that flag! Stop the per­se­cu­tion over here as well!

These types of de­struc­tive peo­ple have no sense of love, tol­er­ance, em­pa­thy or kind­ness.
