Islamophobia bad, Christophobia good
CRITICISE Islam and you’re an “Islamophobe”. You risk court, as two Christian pastors in Melbourne found in 2004.
But criticise Christianity – celebrate even the burning of a church – and you’re a “progressive”. The ABC is your friend. Islamophobia bad; Christophobia good.
Take last week. In the days before Easter, Christianity’s holiest time, no fewer than four Melbourne churches were torched.
The loveliest, Brighton’s Catholic Church of St James, was burned down, its magnificent stained glass, bells and organ destroyed.
This was not just an attack on a building, but on a community pledged to goodness.
As the St James website reminds parishioners, each have “special talents or gifts … given to us for the enrichment of the lives of others and so that we can serve God better”.
So “visit the sick and elderly, feed the hungry, teach those who want to learn, console the lonely and sorrowful …”
Such teachings have already inspired Christians to create the Red Cross, St John Ambulance, Royal Flying Doctor Service, Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul Society, World Vision and many fine private hospitals, hospices and schools.
Yet when St James was destroyed, actor Rachel Griffiths was given sympathetic time on Melbourne ABC radio to say how good she felt.
