Shhh. Don't Tell The Episcopal Church (tm).

Belmont Club looks at the recent massacres of Christians in Jos, Nigeria, (News to you? Not surprised. -ed.), and notices something Western secular Christianity chooses to ignore - traditional Christianity is growing in the Third World:
Today Christianity is a religion of the Third World. Europeans have largely converted to some soft and watered-down variation of the West’s only indigenous creed, Marxism, as represented by John Lennon’s “Imagine” song. Christianity can no longer be associated largely with the West.
And this:
“One factor driving Islamic militancy in many nations is the sense that Christianity is growing. Outside of the West, evangelism and conversion are two of the most sensitive issues in the modern world.”
Unless you are gay, evangelism and conversion seems to be a low priority for the national Episcopal Church (tm) anymore. And if the lack of information at Episcopal Life Online about the massacres is any indication, so apparently are the lives of their Anglican brothers and sisters in Jos.
