Some Canadians enjoy persecuting people, and some Christians think that the persecution of other Christians is a romantic “Left Behind” drawma. “See, it’s all happening to them just like that pastor with the gift of prophecy promised!” they fatuously inform us, before driving off in their late-model cars to their comfortable suburban homes. I wonder how many of them work for the government?
Unfortunately, Canadian Christians are also saddled with a great deal of pitiful, second-rate “Christian” media, prone to running testimonies and “good works” pieces, contributed largely for free. Such publications are not prone to covering concerted, government-aided attacks on Christians, of the type that Levant — who is Jewish and possesses uncommon courage — discusses.
In other words, they are not prone to covering the most important current Canadian religious news in much depth or detail. For one thing, they would need to pay a competent journalist a living wage — and apprise their timid readers that they are prepared to take risks. They might never recover from such decisions because most of their readers esssentially do not want to know until it happens to them personally. And then they won’t need a news medium to tell them.
