I am sure most Christians see the hypocracy of the media in refusing to publish things that would be considered blasphemous to the Prophet Mohammad and followers of Islam because they want to be considerate of their feelings, but have no problem publishing things that blasphem God and Christ and are insulting to Christians. Are the feelings of Christians less important? I am sad that those in England no longer go to Church. I am sad that Christianity in Europe in general is on the decline. Christ is the answer.

In a coming day, whether they believe or not, whether they like it or not, "every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is the Christ." I like to think I look forward to that day. Unfortunately, a lot of garbage has to happen first and we're all going to have to wade through it along with the non-believers. This time of chaos will be shortened for the righteous sake, but "shortened" is relative to God's time and this also doesn't mean that a lot of righteous people aren't going to potentially die as the means of their time being "shortened." The Christian Martyrs come to mind from a similar scenario in the first century.

A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate and die. But in that vision, she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman who practiced obedience in the most difficult of human circumstances, with fervent hope for what this sacrifice will offer all mankind as it struggles with sin.

This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
