Christians will rally to save a persecuted Christian business in America, but do nothing to help Christians across the world literally dying because of their faith, radio and TV host Glenn Beck said Monday.
Beck played the video released
over the weekend of Nigerian Christians being shot in the head or decapitated by members of the Islamic State (ISIS) in Libya and asked why people will watch "The Walking Dead," but turn away from the horrific reality of the killings.
"Why won't we watch this? Why won't we address this?" Beck asked on his show on The Blaze TV.
"They win if we don’t watch it."
Beck pointed out that thousands came to the aid of Memories Pizza,
the Indiana restaurant that came under fire after its owners said they would not cater a same-sex wedding.
"Shouldn't the response be exponentially greater when Christians are literally being beheaded and crucified?" he asked. "Children being raped and killed every single day. Why is the response so mute?"
Beck wondered if the response would be different if the victims were Baptists and Methodists rather than Coptic Christians, whom Americans know little about. Or whether people would care more if the victims were white instead of Middle Eastern or black.
Or is it because the situation is so far removed from the cozy lifestyle most Americans enjoy, he wondered.
In the end, Beck said the only thing he feels comfortable with is that Americans feel helpless and don't know what to do. "And so we do nothing."
