Turkey and COVID 19; Blaming the Christians.


In the country of Turkey, there are reports of attacks on Christians because some many people blame minorities for the COVID 19 pandemic. Christians are a minority in Turkey where most people identify as Muslim, and the government has a strong Islamic agenda.

About half of the Turkish population strongly supports the government, and some protesters have pulled down crosses on churches. One protester was caught trying to burn down a church in Istanbul and he told the police that he blamed the Christians for COVID 19.

There is another side to this story; a Christian broadcaster SAT-7 TURK, has been working to support Christians in Turkey for about five years, with television broadcasts. In the virus pandemic, they are receiving more questions about Christianity, from Turkish people, than at any time in their history.

Not all of the attention is negative.

God told us “I was found by those who did not seek me; I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me.” (Romans 10:20)
