Earley Observations

Christians living in 21st Century America know nothing of persecution when compared to 1st Century Christians. Christians living in 21st Century America know nothing of persecution when compared to 21st Century Christians living in the 10/40 Window.

That being said, this morning I read a column written by Mark Earley. He is President and CEO of BreakPoint, a division of Prison Fellowship. In this column, Earley wonders if some in this great country deliberately attack followers of Christ, and if they do why?

While some might see Earley’s column as just another example of Christian whining, you have to admit there’s a double standard when it comes to different religions. Most newspapers in the US did not dare publish the famed Mohammed cartoons for fear of ‘offending’ Muslims. However, the same newspapers will cry out “free speech” when it comes to publishing materials offensive to Christians, and in fact Earley cites an example of this in the column.

So I guess my question is why the double standard?
