Older then the pyramids, Egypt's indigenous Coptic Christian community is under genocidal attack by an oppressive Muslim culture. Christians must unite to help our organization save and restore the Coptic community, with all the weapons available to us: international and American pressure, food, medicine, construction materials, engineers and labor to preserve and rebuild their crumbling churches.
The USA gives $1.5 billion in aid to Egypt a year. This aid should be contingent on an end to the violence and discrimination against Coptics.
The Nazis were neoDarwinist secularists, fond of Islam, who persecuted Christians and established German separation of church and state
HITLER AND THE NAZIS WERE AN ANTI-CHRISTIAN MOVEMENT
The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death...The dogma of Christianity gets worn away before the advances of science... The instructions of a hygienic nature that most religions gave, contributed to the foundation of organized communities. The precepts ordering people to wash, to avoid certain drinks, to fast at appointed dates, to take exercise, to rise with the sun, to climb to the top of the minaret — all these were obligations invented by intelligent people.
The exhortation to fight courageously is also self-explanatory. Observe, by the way, that, as a corollary, the Moslem was promised a paradise peopled with sensual girls, where wine flowed in streams — a real earthly paradise. The Christians, on the other hand, declare themselves satisfied if after their death they are allowed to sing hallelujahs! ...Christianity, of course, has reached the peak of absurdity in this respect. And that's why one day its structure will collapse. Science has already impregnated humanity. Consequently, the more Christianity clings to its dogmas, the quicker it will decline.
-Adolf Hitler from Table Talk
In popular culture, the Nazis are sometimes mislabeled as German Christians. Germany, the story goes, plotted the Holocaust after being desensitized to mass murder by centuries of cultural racial hatred and pogroms, fanned by Martin Luther's antiJewish rants.
Yet, Luther's rants from the pulpit only began towards the end of his life, when his congregation sensed he was suffering from dementia. The surviving core of Lutheran doctrine was not hate based against Jews.
Christianity was introduced to Germany in the 4th Century AD. Christian conversion calmed the warrior Germanic barbarians. Warrior ruthlessness gave way to Christian mercy and the "noble northern spirit," brave but Christian tempered men.
The Germans did not commit mass genocide against anyone for 16 centuries, until the Nazi's arrived. So, Christianity isn't the answer to the question of 'why did Nazi Germany became a killing machine?' The question is 'how did Nazi leadership bring Germans to war and genocide?'
Mexico continues its longstanding tradition of murdering Catholic priests, and their politicians cover it up
The film 'For the Greater Glory' is an epic chronicle of the Cristeros War (1926-1929). Mexican Catholics took arms against the Mexican government's attempt to oppress the faith.
Mexico continues it's persecution of Christians to this day...
The Klu Klux Klan or the 'KKK' can be divided into 4 separate and distinct movements with completely different objectives. The commonly held historical narrative conflates the four very different organizations as a single underground entity perpetually carrying out racial oppression, using violence and terrorism. This is not true.
The original KKK emerged just following the Civil War as an insurgency to counter Reconstruction, which began in 1865. The federal government shut that KKK version down by 1871.
The third incarnation of the KKK emerged in the 1950's and 1960's, largely a collection of disparate ad hoc local groups, infrequently using terrorism to protest desegregation in the South.
The KKK that marched against the civil rights movement of the 1960's was not organized on a national basis. Members were often unaware of the Klan's history and the symbols they were using.
The KKK of the 1950's and 1960's mostly died out by the 1970's. Today, a 4th incarnation of a small number of KKK groups are evident in protests over removal of the Confederate flag and Southern heritage monuments. A KKK branch in Montana is publicly recruiting African-Americans and Latinos.
Crucifixion of Armenian women by Turkish Muslims during the Ottoman caliphate depicted in the 1919 film 'Auction of Souls.' "Auction of Souls" was based upon a book titled “Ravished Armenia.” Crucifixions against Christians are common in Muslim history, including during the mythical 'Golden Age of Muslim Spain' and recently by ISIL. Picture from the Armenian Genocide Museum.
14 November 1914, less than two weeks after the Ottoman Empire declared war on the Entente (Great Britain, France, and Russia), the Sultan, still acting as a figurehead for the Young Turk regime, declared a jihad or holy war ‘‘against the enemies of Islam, who have proven their hostility by their attacks on the Caliphate.’’
The Five Stages of Religious Persecution
Stage 1 The group is stereotyped.
Stage 2 The group is marginalized
Stage 3 The group is vilified.
Stage 4 The group is criminalized.
Stage 5 Outright persecution ensues
I. Stereotyping the targeted group - To stereotype means to repeat without variation, to take a quality or observation of a limited number and generalize it to describe the whole group. It involves...
