A terrible tragedy has happened in Roseburg, Oregon. A crazed shooter has killed 9 innocent lives and injured 7 more. To add insult to this horrible event, the main stream media is whitewashing the story.
According to witnesses , the shooter singled out Christians to be murdered with a gunshot to the head while those not choosing to be categorized as Christian got less life threatening injuries. News sources on some major networks are reporting these details as –he asked them about their religion. Leaving out completely the fact that Christians were singled out for execution.
Also noticeably absent from the coverage of the event by mainstream media is the association of the shooter with Muslim hate groups and his voiced support of Islamic terrorism. The mainstream media reports that his social media had several “racial hate” posts mentioning only his posts about the IRA.
In contrast, the media frenzy surrounding the Muslim clockmaker Ahmed, couldn’t wait to share how discriminated he was for his faith. Never mind, the fact that there was due cause to suspect him because of his family’s ties to Islamic extremism.
President Obama, in his Press conference today mentioned how “numb” we have become to this kind of violence. NBC nightly news went so far as to say there was nothing trending for the Oregon shooting. Well low and behold, there is something trending but I guess it is not politically correct enough for Twitter to acknowledge it. #iamChristian seems to be trending in a big way.
Let’s acknowledge the courage of those willing to die rather than deny their faith in Christ. Let’s honor those who gave their lives for honoring the One who said , John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32
