My friend Ben Corey, an Anabaptist blogger here at Patheos, has called out the ridiculous persecution complex of American Christians before.
But not like this.
Just ask yourselves, he pleads with Evangelicals and other Christian conservatives,
… what you’d say to those 21 Coptic Christians who were beheaded on the beach this weekend.
Corey is referring to the words-fail-me cruelty that ISIS perpetrated in its latest video: the brutal mass killing of Egyptian Christians who had reportedly migrated to look for work and fell into the hands of the Islamist death cult. The Allah worshipers sawed off their captives’ heads while the victims cried in vain to their God.
I can hear the cries of “we know how you feel!” in my mind as I write this.
