Economies of scale need to kick in at some point for electric “clean” energy to be better in any fashion. It seems a long, looooong way away.
Unless we re-dedicate to going nuclear.
“Christian” is seen as privileged because it is linked to the West, to America’s founding, to conservatism & sadly to many uneducated social justicians, to white supremacism. These know nothing of actual Christianity.
Christianity (specifically the Prot Ref) did have MUCH to do with building the west & founding the US, and that’s a wonderful thing. That’s precisely why America, flaws & all, has been the incredible success it’s been. But white supremacy? Hmm…
I’d encourage anyone who sees Christianity as such to study who led the abolition of slavery. They weren’t just Christians-in-name-only; they were gospel-preaching followers of Jesus. Fast forward to the Holocaust & you will find the same in Bonhoeffer & Corrie Ten Boom.
Anyway— that doesn’t really matter, because those who insist upon using vague terms to describe the Sri Lanka attacks are view everything via an ahistorical, “social justice” lens that has nothing to do with reality. And this, Christians must get used to.
Christians will be pushed to the margins, demonized, etc. But we should take heart— the church thrives in the margins & always has. And nothing— no power here or elsewhere— can ever stop the power of the gospel.

Same happened in New Zealand; they tried to limit the population’s access to media, factual information, opinion, and – of course – the loonies with all the extreme ideas from all sides of the argument.
All other media are reporting though. Why no violence then?
It appears the reasons behind government censorship are wholesome and sensible, but they fall away under scrutiny. Indian media have been publishing the full details of those allegedly responsible all day.

Christians in Sri Lanka are reminded why Jesus rose from the dead and ascended.
