Rex Murphy recognizes Christian persecution

It doesn't happen too often that I get excited by an opinion piece published in the Globe and Mail.  They tend to have very liberal-leaning and anti-Christian views.  

I was pleasantly surprised by an excellent article from the pen of Rex Murphy regarding the "human rights" racket that is afflicting Europe.  Many of you have heard of the abuses inflicted by Canada's human rights commissions.  It's nice to see that we're not alone.  Misery loves company, as the saying goes.

Mr. Murphy's article focuses on two recent "human rights" rulings: the banning of crucifixes from Italian schools, which I wrote about here, and the promulgation of global warming-ism as a new religion, so to speak.  Here's an awesome quote from the article:

A case could be made that, whenever you hear of an action by a human-rights tribunal of any kind, you should mark it down that – quite likely – they are busy circumscribing the real rights or dignity of the various branches of Christianity, with a particular focus on Catholicism.

In this case, the European Court of Human Rights – in response to one complaint, from one atheist – told an entire country that has been the centre of world Christianity for 2,000 years to get rid of its most revered and cardinal symbol. It's the same old story: In the name of official tolerance, mandated intolerance.

Well done, Mr. Murphy.  Bring on the sanity.
