Or maybe, of the modern era: Who will defend Mideast Christians? Western Europe won't - they won't even defend Christianity within their own borders. The US is following suit, as fundamentalist Islamists wage a campaign of persecution and religious cleansing against Christians from Pakistan to Algeria. Mideast Christians are the new canaries in the coal mine of nations.
Would these folks step up to the plate to help? Other than issue a press release or two, I wouldn't think so. It would upset their urbane, interfaith-dialogue, and besides - they wouldn't get invited to sit on privy councils if they did.
Since our "mainstream" Western Christian religious institutions (with one notable exception) won't stand up for our Faith, then someone must. Are we that someone?
