"Christianity under siege" - Vox Day

(The other day I was reading Isaiah, and was reminded that God uses whoever He chooses to carry out His will – the example was about Cyrus of Persia, whom Isaiah described as “did not know God”. I see a similar phenomenon here. Trump is showing us timid Conservatives and Christians who the he…@#$% we are - a bunch of sniveling weaklings intimidated by every force around us – totally unaware that we serve the Ruler of the Universe. What say we act like it, eh? - CL)

Donald Trump, of all people, is speaking out in defense of Christians around the world, when far too many Churchian leaders prefer to preach about tolerance and parodies of marriage:
GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump touted his faith at Liberty University on Monday, telling the conservative college that Christians have to ban together because their religion "is under siege."

"We're going to protect Christianity," he said. "If you look at what's going on throughout the world...Christianity is under siege."

Trump pointed to targeting of Christians by terrorist groups in Syria and urged Christians to work together to use their "power" within the United States to enact change.

He added that "I'm a Protestant. I'm very proud of it, Presbyterian to be exact. ...[but] bad things are happening, very bad things are happening."
To be precise, Christianity needs no more protection than reality does. It simply is. But Christendom does.
