The way the media tells it, you’d think Muslims were getting a raw deal in 2015, what with the fact every time one is looked at askant, the cry of “Islamophobia” dominates the airwaves (see Seen Enough Yet? Now RUSSIA Accuses German Police of Muslim Rape Cover-Up… and University of San Diego Students Support Islam… With Nazi Symbolism?!). Yet if you look at things like facts, the numbers are in. The single most persecuted religion in the world in 2015 was…
Beheadings, imprisonment and eviction from ancestral homelands made 2015 the worst year on record for persecution of Christians, with North Korea topping the list. The other nine of the top ten were of course, Muslim nations, which consistently remain the most dangerous places for followers of the Gospel, according to a new report.
Islamic extremism and authoritarian governments combined to make last year the worst in modern history for Christians around the world, according to Open Doors USA. The trend spiked upward in the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia, with thousands of Christians killed or imprisoned, and even more chased from their homes. But you know, #NotAllIslam.
“Islamic extremism continues to be the primary driving force behind the expansion of persecution,” said Open Doors President and CEO David Curry. “It is no longer just a Christian problem, but a global problem that must be addressed.”
Here’s the deal: are all Muslims terrorists? Of course not. Muhammad was, but that’s a story for another day. I understand that, okay? Okay. So yes, here we are making a generalization. A generalization based on statistically observable trends. Guess what? There’s nothing wrong with that. In some cases, generalizations are simply an evolutionary mechanism for the human brain to process information at a faster rate when required. Generally, the avoidance of a beheading applies.
We can spend all day searching far and wide for racism at college campuses, sexism in the workplace and “transphobia” in the bathrooms. In some instances, you may even find that you have a case. What we see here however, is an undeniable, statistical trend that, according to the recent data, is only getting worse. Where’s the outrage? Where’s #BlackLivesMatter? Any #StopChristianBeheadings hashtags coming down the pike?
Oooooh that’s right. You wouldn’t want to be “racist” now would you? Learn more about Islam’s radically violent history below.
