Repression by the church in the Middle East: what Western media ignore about Christianity

While Western media covers meticulously all repressive acts and words by Muslim institutions in the Middle East, they consistently ignore repression by the church which began its oppression and repression and campaigns of intolerance before there was even Islamic fundamentalism.  The lousy Maronite patriarch of Lebanon, who recently was behind the banning of a play because it mocked a priest, and who is responsible for covering up crimes of molestation by his own priests, has received an excommunication request against members of the Lebanese parliament because they deviated from his policies of naturalization and citizenship.  He is worried about Muslim demographics.   The Patriarch, before he became a patriarch, was behind the revival of the excommunication order in the church.
