Who is to blame?

Reader comment on item: Christianity Dying in Its Birthplace

Submitted by Rick (Canada), Sep 18, 2005 at 15:31

After reading Daniel Pipes article I sent a scathing email to the office of the latin patriarch of Jerusalem Michel Sabah and blamed him for the plight of Christians in the holy land. After all, as far as my memory serves me, he is always in the forefront of spewing his anti-semitic hatred against Israel rather than watching over his flock. True to its nature, I received an equally scathing reply from one of his underlings, calling me ignorant and to keep my stupid opinion to myself.

The answer to who is to blame for the death or rather murder of Christianity in its birthplace is plain and simple. The Christians themselves are committing suicide or harakiri by either supporting their moslem rulers or by silence(which all the mainline Christian denominations are guilty of). This person also called Michel Sabah a hero and hope to millions of Christians in the holy land, which of course begged me to ask him the question. Then why is the Christian population of the holy land dwindling??

Well I guess you can only help people as much as they want to be helped.
