British reality TV star Andy West epitomizes the persecution Christians face in the world today with his outrageous reaction to the terrorist attack in Sri Lanka, which resulted in at least 321 people killed and hundreds more injured.
Local police say a radical Islamic cleric was the mastermind behind the attack, but West took to Twitter to urge people not to send “prayers” to the victims.
Because Christian missionaries, who West labeled “cult leaders” in a separate tweet, tried to proselytize children who lost their parents in the 2004 tsunami — according to the liberal ideologue.
Fittingly, the former Big Brother contestant tried to couch his despicable remarks by first saying there’s “no excuse for terror attacks against innocent people.”
“There is no excuse for terror attacks against innocent people but as a journalist, I saw Western Christian missionaries unscrupulously converting Buddhist orphans for food and shelter after the Asian tsunami. Don’t send your prayers,” he tweeted.
And the gay journalist was just getting warmed up in condemning Christians, as he mocked their religion while accusing them of “brainwashing desperate children.”
“Most – though not all – of those ‘good Christian soldiers’ thought they were doing God’s good work. Perhaps we should forgive people their delusions but trying to press one religion onto another by brainwashing desperate children is a Western tradition that only leads to misery,” West said in a follow-up tweet.
He doubled down on his stance in another post, which is when he called Christians “cult leaders.”
“I witnessed young Buddhist children who’d watched their parents drown in the tsunami being asked: ‘Are you hungry? Do you have somewhere safe to sleep? Will you love Jesus Christ?’ Now you tell me that I, as a journalist, should be blind to Christian cult leaders in Sri Lanka?”
West blamed Christianity and Western civilization as possible reasons for the Easter Sunday terrorist attack, while condemning prayer.
“So prayers aren’t needed. In fact prayers are proven beyond doubt to have no effect. What might help, however, is ending the Western campaign to convert people of other religions in exchange for charity,” he concluded.

Typical of the progressive ilk, West attacked those who disagreed with him, calling them “angry right wing American Christian zealots,” as he reveled in this newfound attention.
Needless to say, he got lit up on social media, though there was plenty of sympathy for someone with such a huge, Christian-shaped hole in their heart.
Here’s a sampling of some of the responses from Twitter:
I just reported your hate crime to the London police.
Condoning terrorist attacks against the Christian community in Sri Lanka is deplorable. https://t.co/9eUVi65Pi2

“Everyone who disagrees with me must be a crazy right-wing zealot! There’s no way I could possibly just be wrong!”

I’m agnostic but have a strong feeling this dude had some Christian deeply hurt him once in his life. Seems to have a Christian-shaped hole in his heart.

Don’t mind me, I’m just here for the ratio.
