GUEST COMMENTARY: Christian Lives Don’t Matter


Bill Donohue of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights provides this commentary on coverage of the Jr. College shooting in Oregon.

NEW YORK, Oct. 2, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ — Bill Donohue comments on media reaction to the Oregon killings:

Here is what Chris Harper-Mercer said to his victims just before he killed them: “Are you Christian?” After they stood up he said, “Good, because you’re Christian, you are going to see God in just about one second.” He then shot them. Another eyewitness account said that after he asked if they were Christian, “then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs.”

The following media outlets were among those that reported on this story but never mentioned that Christians were singled out:

      • ABC World News Tonight
      • CBS Evening News
      • NBC Nightly News
      • PBS News Hour
      • New York Times
      • USA Today
      • Slate
      • Salon
      • Gawker
      • Daily Beast
      • Salon
      • Yahoo
      • Huffington Post
      • Associated Press [This accounts for why so many papers across the nation made no mention of Christians.]

If African Americans or Muslims had been singled out, President Obama would have gone ballistic, Al Sharpton would be calling for street rallies, and CAIR would be asking for congressional investigations. But because Christians are being cherry picked for murder, there is no call to arms. Indeed, many major media outlets aren’t even telling the truth. It’s obvious—”Christian Lives Don’t Matter”—either here or abroad.
