Modern Christian martyrs

It seems unlikely that those who prosecuted Brigitte Bardot for criticising Islam or Le Pen for calling gas chambers a “detail” will now go against critics of Christianity, even though a new compilation shows that during the last century 45,000,000 Christians were killed for their religion.

Death makes us all equal, but some are more equal than others. The very high figure may depend somewhat on interpretation, for example the relationship between the antireligious goals of communist states and the various repressions they conducted. Still, the number of hard-core martyrs duing the last century is very high, certainly many millions, but no-one thinks it matters. Unlike Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Christian martyrs aren’t relevant to the official story about things and so are edited out.
