Wearing orange jump suits, a group of Coptic Christians marched on the White House calling on President Obama to protect Christians in the area.  Doing so across 1500 miles of open desert would be a neat trick, but I understand their sentiment. Unfortunately, this nation has twice decided to elect an islam-protecting narcissist as president, who has repeatedly shown his attitude towards Christians…….disdain, comes to mind.

Naturally, the mainstream media consigned this non-event to the memory hole, and the omnipresent intelligence machine probably marked every name and face for possible reprisal, later.  Non-events and unpersons, that the United States these days (and yes, I’m being negative, but I think I have every reason to be):

A group of Coptic Christians marched to the White House on Tuesday, demanding that President Obama protect Christians from the genocide that is taking place in the Middle East.

“Obama, Obama, did you see? Christian blood in the sea,” they repeated as they marched in D.C.

As U.S. allies push back against ISIS, [half-heartedly and ineffectually] the Islamist militants take every opportunity to inflict acts of barbarism across Iraq and Syria. Even in retreat, they’ve taken over small villages, kidnapping Christians, and separating the men from woman and children.

No one can be certain of their fate, [unfortunately, I think we can….]  but if recent history is any indication, the men will be paraded out, tortured and murdered. And the Christian women and children will be sold as sex slaves. [Ah, the pleasures of jihad…..murder, barbarity, theft, rapine, and endless quenching of bloodlust.  Of course islam is the “religion of peace!”]

………“These women were sobbing, saying, ‘What is our fault? Why is the West silent? Why is the Church not talking about our persecution?” Taimoorazy said.

“And they’re asking, they’re questioning the foreign policy of America and also other world powers and Europe, saying, ‘Why is it that there’s nothing; there’s no agenda.’ There’s really nothing being done to help the persecuted in the Middle East,” she said.

Without starting a debate on how broke this country is or anything else, first and foremost, little is done to protect Christians because the West’s elites have absolutely no interest in doing so.  Their multi-culti sensibilities and latent (or openly avowed) disdain for Christianity (and especially the Church) mean they have no interest in protecting Christians terrorized by muslims.  The effort against ISIS – such as it is, and it isn’t much – is about geopolitics, not saving persecuted religious minorities.  We only do that for muslims, as we did in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Chechnya.

These Christians, monophysites or not, have my prayers, and a little bit of money, but that’s probably all they can expect from us at this point.

If we Christians want to be defended – and I mean that as much in this country as any around the world – we are going to have to do the defending ourselves.

On a side note, perhaps we’ll see the first Egyptian Coptic “doctor of the Church” soon?

Sorry, it was just hanging there, waiting for me to bat it out of the park.  But instead I hit a dribbler down the third base line, but the third baseman errored out and I got on base, anyway.

Yes, the execution was a tragedy, but don’t forget that monophysitism is a heresy.

All the same, Camper, we don’t kill OUR heretics, eh?
