Glenn Beck on Monday asked why Americans aren’t doing more for the Christians being persecuted in the Middle East.
“Why does no one care?” Beck demanded on his television program. “When we talked about a Christian pizza parlor just the other day, Christians responded in large numbers. … Here people are getting executed. Shouldn’t the response be exponentially greater when Christians are literally being beheaded and crucified, children being raped and killed every single day?”
Beck shared the latest video released by the Islamic State showing the brutal murder of captured Christians in Libya.
“This time, Ethiopian followers of the cross were rounded up and brutally executed,” Beck said. “This is the greatest persecution of Christians in our lifetime. So why have Americans turned a blind eye?”
Beck said he can’t find an answer that he is comfortable with, but there are several possible reasons.
“Maybe we don’t react to these things because we don’t think of the Greek Orthodox or the Coptic Christians — we don’t know what the Coptic thing is,” Beck said. “Because would we care if the victims were Methodist or Baptist or Catholic or Mormon? I guarantee you we would.”
“Is the president right? Is it race?” Beck continued. “If the victims were white instead of Arab or black would we care more? … [Or] maybe it’s too far removed from our creature comforts here in America. It’s not even real to us. We don’t have the energy to care about anything happening half a world away because our world is burning down here.”
