Today, Christians can be Murdered for Drinking Water from Wrong Fountain
By Ben Barrack
Right this very moment, a young woman is facing death for drinking from a bowl of water that was meant for others who are not like her. Her name is Asia Bibi and she is a Catholic in Pakistan who was sentenced to death for drinking the water only Muslims were allowed to drink.
Here is what she wrote in her memoir via the New York Post:
I, Asia Bibi, have been sentenced to death because I was thirsty. I’m a prisoner because I used the same cup as those Muslim women, because water served by a Christian woman was regarded as unclean by my stupid fellow fruit-pickers.
Of course, what better application could there be of Matthew 25:35-36?
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
The New York Post article explains how Bibi’s story was told – by dictating it to her husband who then managed to get it into the hands of a French journalist who had it published. As a result, Bibi’s story has essentially represented the stories of countless others, in much the same way that Anne Frank’s did.
Prior to civil rights legislation passing in the early 1960’s, man’s inhumanity to man was on display in the U.S. in matters of race and ideology. The Ku Klux Klan – the militant arm of the Democratic Party – terrorized blacks with unspeakable acts. Blacks, and for that matter white Republicans were bullied, attacked, and intimidated into subjugating themselves to the Democrat agenda. As historian Allen W. Trelease wrote, the KKK even bore false witness in the most heinous of ways:
“Democrats by a kind of tortured reasoning, sometimes accused Negroes and Republicans of attacking each other so that the crimes would (not) be blamed on the Democrats; investigations revealed that Democrats had committed the acts themselves.”
One of the most disturbingly iconic photos tells the tale of the times – separate water fountains based on the color of one’s skin:

In reality, those days are gone in America but they are on full display in Muslim countries right now. Yet, the outrage is all but absent in America. Instead, Democrats here continue to bear false witness; they accuse Republicans of racism and are even more vile toward black Republicans. An ironic – and often perplexing difference – is that some black Democrats have willingly signed up to betray their own race in the name of fighting for it. None other than “one-percenter” and race hustler Al Sharpton is the prime example. He has his own television show in order to further feed a manufactured, exploitative, and alternate reality where he represents the victims of racism that no longer exists, especially when compared with the persecution of blacks in Muslim lands.
Sharpton somehow continues unabated despite a despicable history of exacerbating racial tensions and siding with lies that result in the harming of others based on those lies; the Tawana Brawley and Duke LaCrosse cases come to mind. In 2012, Breitbart posted a twenty year-old video that fully exposed Sharpton’s tactics, courtesy of a former colleague who’d had enough.
Proportionally, a much higher percentage of black babies are aborted than are white babies in America today. Yet, one of Sharpton’s crusades has been to defend the right of women to have abortions. In so doing, he supports the infanticide of his own race in order to ingratiate himself with the purveyors of an agenda that includes keeping alive, the notion that America somehow still lives in a pre-civil rights era; he also does it to enrich himself.
Shockingly, forces that attempted to persecute and kill blacks have enlisted blacks – like Sharpton – to encourage other blacks to persecute and kill their own children.
In 2011, Sharpton was offended by a New York City billboard that showed a photo of a young black girl with the caption, “The Most Dangerous Place for an African American is in the Womb” and was instrumental in having it taken down.
To further exemplify just how upside-down Sharpton is, this ‘champion’ of racial justice donned a lab coat behind beakers and bunsen burners on his very own cable television show to tell his audience that the record lows America is experience this winter are actually the result of global warming.
These are distractions put forth by those with an agenda that includes deceit, lies, and genocide (abortion) as a means to enrichment. A consequence of this wickedness – unintended or otherwise – is that the real victims of civil rights crimes on par or worse than those suffered by blacks in America decades ago, are not helped.
The outrage that should be coming from Americans is either contained by a media with an agenda similar to Sharpton or non-existent because the victims of that agenda are too busy fighting it instead of focusing on people like Bibi.
Of course, perhaps the best evidence that America has put its history of civil rights abuses behind it, has been the election (and re-election) of a black president, who appointed a black man as Attorney General. Unfortunately, that president’s agenda is shared by none other than Sharpton, which could explain why Sharpton faces no real consequences for his actions.
Perhaps the biggest beneficiary of civil rights legislation in America is the man who wields the most power to do something about the gross civil rights abuses of Christians in the Middle East.
Ironically, he has adopted foreign policies that have only served to deny further, their civil rights whilst seeking to manufacture and rub raw the sores of racial discontent domestically.
Both can serve as case studies in people becoming what they hate.
