Jeremy Hunt defends Donald Trump’s attack on Sadiq Khan
But Hunt is himself reportedly a Christian and he should remember the parable of the mote and the beam. The government of which he is a part has done almost nothing to support Christians abroad. It did not offer asylum to Asia Bibi, the Pakistani woman convicted under that country’s monstrous blasphemy law. It has sucked up to Saudi Arabia, a country where public Christianity is illegal, Christian migrant workers are treated abominably and where the corpses of executed criminals are still crucified.
It is a supporter of the government in Egypt, a country where Coptic churches are frequently assaulted. It is eager to trade with China, a country where Christians are persecuted and churches demolished. I can find no record of Hunt or any other recent foreign secretary raising these concerns directly when visiting the countries concerned.
Jeremy Hunt must know where all the bodies are buried, right? Cos it’s the only possible explanation for this madness.
