The United States and other Western nations value freedom of religion, where people are free to practice the faith of their culture without fear of getting harassed or even attacked for doing it.
Unfortunately, some Muslims, who believe that their religion is the only true religion and the “seal” of all human understanding about God, do not respect this freedom of religion that majority Christian nations like the United States have shown them. Now liberals in one Western countries are telling Christian to cover up their crosses so that they don’t “offend” Muslims.
Recently in Sydney, Australia, two Christians who were riding on a train and had cross pendants visible outside of their shirts were attacked by a Muslim gang who screamed “F*ck Jesus!” at them. Train officials watched this happening and did not intervene.
The Muslim gang beat up the man and ripped the cross off of his neck and stepped on it. Said the Christian man, “I was born in Australia of Greek heritage. I’ve always worn my cross. For [them] to rip it off and step on it has to be a religious crime … It’s not on to feel unsafe in your own country.”
Now, authorities in Australia are telling Christians to hide their crosses so they won’t be attacked for their faith. Unfortunately, even the country’s Christian ministers are telling them to do the same. Said Reverend George Capsis about what happened, “There are gangs of these young fellows of Muslim background who have been harassing people they identify as Christian.” He added, “It’s like their territory. They don’t want Christians or other types of infidels there. People like Greek Orthodox carry a big cross. I tell them to be practical and if they’re in those areas and wearing a big cross and a group of young guys comes, hide it in your shirt. Why provoke it?” Do you think it’s disgusting that Australian Christians are now being told to hide their crosses?
