Reflection: Will you wait a while? - Anne Lastman

Christianity is now regarded as the most persecuted religion around the world.

In some countries it means deadly violence, in others like Australia it ranges from persistent requests in parliaments for anti-Christian legislation, down to daily press rants and ravings against God and the Bible.

The organisation is international with action on a worldwide scale, assisted by the present United States administration. Fundamental Muslim militants do the rest.

About America, Cardinal Raymond Burke, head of Apostolic Signatura, the highest court at the Vatican, said in a recent interview, "President Barack Obama's policies have become progressively more hostile toward Christian civilisation."

Cardinal Burke added, "Obama wants to restrict religious freedom and force individuals to act against their rightly-formed conscience, even in the most serious of moral questions."

It is up to Christians now to sort out what type of world they want for their children.
