Real Christian Persecution

Colbert King has a great editorial in the Washington Post about Christians in Africa and the Middle East being murdered because of their faith. The key quotation epitomizes snark well done:
But why should we know much about the killing of Christians when news of Washington’s political food fights, the looming federal shutdown and the National Zoo’s new panda cub keep getting in the way?
Some on the political right contend that there's a war on Christians in the United States. King's editorial reminds all what a real war on Christians would look like. The piece also illustrates hat those who chose to use that metaphor are cheapening the martyrdom of real victims in a real war.
