    I find it disturbing that leaders, media and many others in the post-Christian West are so critical against regimes that prevented things like these from happening, and so eager to support change, or even to support forces that may well share interests with the terrorists who destroy churches and kill Christians. It is like they think that the only thing that could be better for Egypt, Syria and other Arab nations is that their civilizations are shook up and turned upside down. The respect that Barack Obama and others show for the Arab world when they support the so-called Arab Spring appears to me to be a kind of hypocrisy in that way.

    To paste a quote from a (I think Russian) respondant on the linked site:


    MAY GOD FORGIVE THEM FORE THEY DO DOn't KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE DONE. IF THEY DO NOT REPEND THEY SINS THEY WILL GO TO HELL LIKE ALL OF US WHO NOT REPEND OWER SINS.
