Christianity becomes next battleground in cancel wars

Christian figures and symbols have increasingly become the subject of debate as protesters across the country demand a reckoning on racial justice, pulling down statues and criticizing controversial figures along the way.

Christianity, like nearly every long-standing institution in the United States, has a complicated history with racism, prompting several leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement to call for its symbols to be adjusted or removed. In some cities, protesters have taken matters into their own hands, pulling down statues or taking over churches.

Protesters on Monday occupied the exterior of St. John’s Episcopal Church near the White House, refashioning it as the “Black House Autonomous Zone,” a reference to the police-free zone in Seattle, Washington. The church’s exterior was vandalized, the second time the building has been defaced since protesters burned its basement in early June. Several protesters told the Washington Examiner that the zone was their way of scoring restitution for slave owners who were Episcopalian.

The BHAZ was a short-lived phenomenon: Police cleared it out early Tuesday morning after President Trump tweeted that there will “never” be an autonomous zone in the city.

Actually, that was (and is) the Muslims who have that saying.
And when they behead your own people in the wars which are to come, then you will know what this was all about.

Yup.  The deepest and most enduring commitment of the Left since it got that name from the seating arrangement in the French National Assembly has been hatred of the Gospel.

Nazis and Muslims had a lot in common, Nazis loved Islam as they felt it was a better religion for soldiers than "flabby" Christianity.

American Christians today may yet have a chance to publicly testify to their faith at risk of their jobs, homes or perhaps even more. Separating the wheat from the chaff.

We may be approaching that pass again - IMO, it was averted when Hillary lost. Nero, Diocletian, Julian the Apostate, Stalin, and Mao are dead (to list a few). The church is not. And these fools will have similar success.

Josef Stalin to French Foreign Minister Pierre Laval on May 13, 1935 "The Pope? How many divisions as he got?". Well Joe Christianity is still around and the Soviet Union while still a power house is not what it used to be.
