Social Media Intensifies Global Wave Of Religious Persecution

Posted on by

According to an article at The Telegraph, we today experience an upsurge in religious persecution which threatens to drag humanity “back to the dark ages”.
Social media sites such as Twitter and facebook are to blame for this according to former Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks.

The rabbi said in an emotional address in the House of Lords that we can see attempts to wipe out Christianity in parts of the Middle East along with violence and murder of followers across much of Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. He likened those development to what he calls an “religious equivalent of ethnic cleansing”.

However, not too long ago we also witnessed  mob attacks on Jews in France and other parts of Europe, Islamist violence against other Muslims and the persecution.

The former Rabbi said that for him the fact that people today are still killing and being killed in the name of religion is not only a moral and political scandal but “the desecration of faith itself”.

What do you think? Are social media responsible for more religion intolerance and violence?
