As the media loses its collective mind that a group of Muslims were killed in New Zealand, the media continues to ignore the dozens of Christians killed by Muslims nearly every month and today we have another story of half a dozen killed by Muslims in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The latest murder of Christians occurred in Africa where six were murdered, including a 9-year-old child.

The murders came as part of an intimidation campaign against local Christians.
As Christian Post reported:
Open Doors USA, a Christian persecution watchdog nonprofit active in 60 countries, reports that nearly 500 families fled from their homes when rebel forces attacked the largely Christian village of Kalau near the city of Beni in DRC’s North Kivu province.
The attack reportedly lasted about four hours and is believed to have been perpetrated by the Allied Democratic Forces, a militant group active in the North Kivu province of the DRC and Uganda.
Launched in the mid-1990s by Ugandan Muslim rebels forced out of Uganda, the ADF has become the conflict-stricken DRC’s most active and violent rebel group over the past two years.
But this is hardly a lone, isolated incident.
Muslims are murdering Christians nearly every single month. And the media is utterly silent about this constant campaign of murder.
Why is the media silent on that?
Why no media outrage for that?
Another mass murder of Christians occurred in Nigeria at the end of June last year, too. 200 Christians were murdered in a two-day period. Did the media go crazy about that?
By at least one reckoning, 11 Christians a day are murdered across the world (and mostly in Muslims countries) for their beliefs.
Where is the media to decry this?
