Muted Christmas in Iraq

Threats against Christian churches in Iraq forced the cancellation of many Christmas celebrations. Religious leaders advised worshippers to mark the occasion only with prayer. Thousands of Iraqi Christians fled to safer areas for the festive season.

But still the churches in the West remain silent.

Even worse than the silence is the hypocrisy shown by St Mary’s in Guildford which had on sale the pre-Christmas Israeli so-called Peace Oil. [see Peace oil or taking the piss?]
