Telegraph : Allison Pearson Calling the Sri Lanka bombing victims 'Easter Worshippers' shows just how afraid we are to admit that Christians are under attack

\\ On Monday, The Washington Post ran a bizarre story about the Easter Sunday massacre with the headline, “Sri Lanka church bombings stoke far-Right anger in the West”.
That was wildly premature, but it inadvertently revealed their overwhelming concern: not that so many had been slaughtered, but that such horrors would provoke a backlash against Muslims.
The Post continued, “far-Right groups began to describe the attacks in specifically religious terms”.
… Possibly not unrelated to the fact that the Sri Lankan authorities had just blamed a militant Islamist group.

“To some”, the paper opined gingerly, “it was further proof that Christians in many parts of the world are under attack.” //

OK this is Climate but it's surprising how in cult like awee the metroliberal establishment of MPs and journos are to Greta Thunberg

example of top reader comment below today's Times articles
\\ This is the fourth Times article I have read today about this juvenile activist.
The stories about Aspergers and autism are irrelevant, what matters is that she is a child being used by manipulative adults to push their warped political agenda.
Her message is incoherent, crazed and dangerous.
She wants to spread panic and destructive economics.
It is bad enough to see the BBC become the media arm of climate fanatics, but now we see MPs following this craze guru around Westminster like mediaeval sheep.
And here we find a senior Times columnist completely given over to the gibberish.
Is there anyone in the Times editorial team capable of standing against this febrile corrosive rot?
... (actually Quentin Letts article does) //

Child Saint Greta of Westminster has had a vision
... and now the metroliberal establishment are building a costly shrine.

This is the actual leader column in The Times
\\ The Times view on Theresa May’s snub to Greta Thunberg: Conservative Greens

The Tory party is missing a trick by not embracing green issues. Conservatism should stand for conservation, and it can outflank the left

For reasons of self-interest, as well as the national interest, Theresa May was wrong to decline a meeting with the climate protester Greta Thunberg.
(.. that's contradicted by other Times article which says Greta refused all the time slots offered)
A Swedish 16-year-old, Ms Thunberg is one of the youngest people to be nominated for the Nobel peace prize. She leaves school each Friday to protest against global warming outside the Swedish parliament. In doing so, she has inspired thousands of schoolchildren worldwide. Yesterday in parliament she met Jeremy Corbyn, Sir Vince Cable and the Green Party’s Caroline Lucas, together with Michael Gove, the environment secretary. Mrs May, who in February scolded Ms Thunberg’s fans for skipping school to protest, would have been wise to have found the time.
