'In her six years in office, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has not exactly developed a reputation as a fiery or controversial orator. But her comments at a church on Monday have her critics fuming. The Times of Israel reports:

Opposition MPs have criticised the Chancellor, Angela Merkel, for claiming that Christianity is “the most persecuted religion worldwide”.

Merkel’s comments came at a meeting of the German Protestant Church late Monday in which she emphasized Germany’s needed to protect Christian minorities as part of its foreign policy.

Merkel, the daughter of a pastor, also spoke out against strict separation of church and state and said Europe was built on Christian foundations.

The critics have howled over Merkel’s comments and will no doubt continue to do so, but she’s right.

This doesn’t mean that persecutions of other religions is justified, of course. Via Meadia believes that everyone should be free to follow his or her own conscience and to follow whatever religion or secular philosophy he or she chooses. But it is true nonetheless that Christians face persecution and mob violence in countries all over the world, and it’s refreshing to hear an important world leader giving voice to this obvious but important truth.'


 This could be it. I may be moving to Germany, an old Fantasy of JB.s
