Sunni Sect’s Ruthless Violence against Christians

By Nina Shea

In a reprise of the administration’s statement of condolences a year ago when a Syriac Catholic church in Iraq was bombed during Mass, the White House press office failed to make any observation whatsoever about the religious character of [Sunday’s] violence in Nigeria. Its statement identified neither the victims nor the perpetrators other than to say that they were Nigerian, and omitted any mention of the churches that were the main sites of the bombings.

But don’t worry; the administration has made a ton of noise lately about defending the rights of “the LGBT community” worldwide as a main part of its foreign policy.
