American Martyrs Death Go Unreported-Mainstream Media Ignores this Travesty

Two Christians Murdered for Witnessing in Boynton Beach

Why the National Media Blackout?

According to the Boynton Beach police, simply sharing the word of God on the street is what brought two ministers to the man who killed them. Tite Sufra, 24, and Stephen Ocean, 23, were shot and killed Saturday night after meeting Jeriah Woody, 18. They witnessed to Woody for fifteen minutes when he got a phone call and told the preachers he ‘had to go.’ As they walked away, Woody suddenly started walking back toward them. Sufra walked up to greet him and was killed with a shot gun blast at point blank range. When Ocean ran, he was shot in the back. After he fell, Woody shot him in the head execution style. Woody was arrested Wednesday and is charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

“As of today, there are no national news organizations reporting this vicious murder of two innocent Christian men. Why?” Cass said, “I’ll ask this: If two Muslims, or two feminists or two homosexuals were murdered, wouldn’t the media be all over it? These were two fine young black Christian men shot by another black man for their Christian faith, yet the media does not seem to care.”

Cass continued: “It is an ominous sign of our times that Christians are being shot on the streets and in our churches. Last year Jim Pullion was killed while holding pro-life signs in front of his granddaughter’s Owasso Michigan high school. Rev. Fred Winters was murdered while preaching in his pulpit in Maryville, Illinois. Increasingly we see Christian ministers threatened and churches terrorized and vandalized for their stand on marriage. Now when Christians gather for worship they must have armed security. Anti-Christian defamation and bigotry has helped to create this violent climate and it must stop.”

Tomorrow I will write some thoughts I have on this as it relates to the new frontier of post-christian culture in America. But, I’m curious to know, what do you think?

  1. I am not sure that calling for fairness is the best use of our energy in a situation like this. The media is a fallen tool in a fallen world that doesn’t care if Christians die. Not to mention, Scripture on many occasions makes it clear that this is the way it is going to be. Therefore, our trust must rest in a sovereign God who knows every ounce of blood that is shed in His name and ultimately for His glory. The world will one day know this without veiled faces. This is our hope in Christ’s return when every knee will bow, not the capitulation of woldly means to our voices or even martyrdom.

  2. It is alarming Captain, but as Cameron said, I am not sure it is surprising.

    Cam, I’m not sure a call for fairness or a hope in the capitulation of the media is what the author was after, so much as a plea for people to awake see the clear signs of a visible shift in the remnants of Christendom we have “enjoyed” for so long.

  3. My comment was based on the middle paragraph and the last line of the story. To call for persicution to stop is to forget where we are in redemptive history. I do agree that the Golden Age of Christian freedom in the US is coming to an end but only those with eyes to see and ears to hear will dial in. However, it is a freedom that we abused (gross generalization, I know)and has resulted in a post-Christian shift. This is to be celebrated, because it means that the church will begin to flourish with true conversions as opposted to the faux conversions that were a result of enculturation and socialization (see Matthew 7: Depart from me for I never knew you…despite their works and experiences).

  4. We are in total agreement there. I believe he will flourish, like the days before Constantine when your faith must be to the core or not at all, because the expense for believing could be your life.

    His call for “this violence to stop” is a blind spot he clearly has, and a deep longing for Christendom to be sustained. I don’t disagree with you there at all, my reference was simply regarding the “call to fairness” versus a “look at what the world had become”in his language in the middle paragraph.
