Echo the Appeal of Pope Francis
Thanks to the New York Post for publishing my op-ed on the brutal massacre of the Egyptian Coptic Christians. These attacks are part of an orchestrated fanaticism, an ideology that sees Christianity, Judaism and any religion of peace as the enemy.
Here is an excerpt:
“They were beheaded for nothing less than their religious convictions. It moves me to prayers. It moves me to tears, yes, as a Christian, but also as an American, who recognizes religious freedom as ‘our first and most cherished liberty.’
No denying it: There is an orchestrated phobia of Christianity throughout the world today, a coordinated effort on behalf of fanatics to see that true religion which stands for friendship, peace, the dignity of the human person and the sacredness of human life, is stamped out.
These aren’t sporadic attacks. This is part of an orchestrated fanaticism, an ideology that sees Christianity, Judaism and any religion of peace as the enemy.
Fanatics want to take over, and we can’t let that happen. They threaten civilization, everything that is decent and noble about humanity. It is a worldwide crisis that cannot, must not, be ignored.”
