The new episode of Holy Smoke is about the persecution of Christians. That’s a familiar concept, even if we don’t read much about it in the media. But here’s what it means in 2019:
- The rape, murder and dismemberment of pregnant Christian women in Nigeria by Islamist thugs.
- The use of face-recognition technology by the Chinese government to monitor, control and, where it deems necessary, eradicate Christian worship by demolishing thousands of churches
- The evisceration of ancient Christian communities in the lands of the Bible.
