Christians may be the most persecuted group in the world, and their persecution is on the rise. As Islamic extremism takes hold and repressive governments step up their campaigns against Christianity, the Pope has been moved to warn of “a form of genocide”, and for campaigners to speak out over “religio-ethnic cleansing.”

Organisations that monitor religious persecution have rung alarm bells worldwide, from South America to sub-Saharan Africa and from Asia to the Middle East, warning of a rapid increase in attacks and repression, The Guardian has reported.

It quotes the Pope, who, on a recent trip to South America, said he was dismayed “to see how in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world many of our brothers and sisters are persecuted, tortured and killed for their faith in Jesus.”

    It’s about time that someone called this rampant killing what it is: genocide. Just like Jews were being killed in the Holocaust just because they were Jews, Christians are now being killed by Muslims just because they’re Christians. This wave of killings is nothing less than the first genocide of the 21st century. There will almost certainly be more.

    This Pope, while I believe his heart is in the right place, by his actions and speeches keeps backing up the New World Order…Socialist types of agendas.They applaud him and give him press when he does his uninformed Climate Change encyclical ( which also by the way criticized abortion)…the left applauds ( no mention of the abortion position)…he does his anti-capitalist tirade , while simultaneously blaming capitalism for climate change ( no mention of his stance on abortion)…the crowd cheers louder….. He takes his stance on persecution of Christains….sounds of crickets chirping !!!!

    For a supposedly smart man how can the Pope not see that he is tuning his piano to play to the wrong audience??? He doesn’t see that he is no different than the pathetic Democrat preaching ‘All Lives Matter’ at a Black Lives Matter rally…. as he gets shouted down for even saying such a thing ( which in retrospect he probably didn’t even believe because he apologized for saying it….that’ll teach him to ‘pander by assumption’). The Pope needs to take some time to reflect. he has already pushed his credibility to the limits with his conservative faction,… IF he keeps getting off message he ‘ll have the ‘ one hit wonder rock star’ slide into oblivion orchestrated by his disappointed groupies from the left….which will choreograph all sorts of vile vitriol to ensure he will never be able to become a’ Phoenix Rising’. In short this Pope is in danger of quickly becoming irrelevant by dissing his conservative followers and due to his pandering to the left..who view him as a ‘useful idiot’… for now….maybe!!!!
