Christophobic Attacks Grow in America
Proverbs 21:30; Romans 14:12
8-4-20, WND.com -- With violence marching in the streets of many of America's most prominent cities, there is a troubling underlying sub-theme. Christophobia is attacking anything Christian. Surely it too is on the march. The latest example took place in Portland Oregon; the burning of God's Holy word. For more than two months violent anarchists have been burning, destroying, looting in Portland. And on Aug. 2, 2020 the rioters [aka protesters] were filmed burning Bibles and the American flag.
Ian Miles Cheong, managing editor of Human Events, tweeted, "I don't know what burning the Bible has to do with protesting against police brutality. Do not be under the illusion that these protests and riots are anything but an attempt to dismantle all of Western civilization and upend centuries of tradition and freedom of religion."
How interesting to note that the focus of the ceaseless attacks in Portland has been the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse. The late Mark Hatfield, a long-time senator from the state of Oregon, was known for years as an outspoken strong Christian and follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In the history of the world there is no book so attacked as almighty God's Holy Bible. However, on earth, annually the Bible remains the bestselling book with 20 million copies sold in America alone and that with and despite the Christophobes burning copies of the Word of God on the streets of Portland.

Jim Denison on July 15, 2020 'forum' reported, "A number of churches from Florida to California were burned and vandalized over the weekend."
The attack on Christianity can also be seen in the responses to churches reopening in the wake of the Covid virus scare. Several Democrat State governors have a double standard toward about safety. Church services – even if those church services practice social distancing, worshiping in cars from parking lots and obedience to the face mask edict still aren't enough so worship services are not allowed. [But rioting, liquor stores, marijuana dispensers, Nevada casinos and abortion mills are.]
Kelly Shackelford, the founder and director of First Liberty Institute recently said: "There's a clear attack on religious freedom, the churches, there's been undeniable discrimination. ... 'Well, you can't sing at church, but oh yeah, the protests, we're OK with that because that's important,' which belies an understanding that they have that the church is not important – that religious freedom is not important."
When a church in Nevada recently asserted equal rights with casinos and liquor stores, the state balked. This is a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court – where the church lost...
Justice Neil Gorsuch's dissent: "In Nevada, it seems, it is better to be in entertainment than religion. … But there is no world in which the Constitution permits Nevada to favor Caesars Palace over Calvary Chapel."
Those who engage in attacking Christ and the church need to remember this warning from the Word of God in
"We all will be judged."
