Name Christians slaughtered by hate and sin
September 12th, 2016
By Daniel Roddick

I noticed a message of love and sympathy in the Aug. 11 edition from The Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity. I was taken aback by the groups they left out. It would have been appropriate to mention Christians who have suffered greatly in recent months, as well as blacks, whites, Latinos and gay men. However, they chose to highlight only the LGBT community after a list of cities. They also did not mention recent attacks in predominantly minority countries, whose death toll was also high. I don’t doubt they care deeply for our own Christian community and all people as they stated, but I encourage all of us to be brave enough to name Christians when listing the groups being slaughtered by hate and sin.
