THE CHURCH, THE TURK AND I THE STATUS OHO By Arson Baker a I jnaamucn ss ye did it not to one of the least of these ye did it not to me. Matt 25:45. ! By Church I mean the groups of people of all sects who profess to believe in and follow the teachings of Jesus of Nasareth. The greatest group of Christian nations is the British Empire, the United States of 1 America, France and Italy. ii so nappens tnat these lour na tions are very much interested just now in preserving what ia called the status quo. Sometimes when a group ef nations becomes anxious to pre serve the status quo, it Is because each member of the group haa stolen all that it can steal, and ia willing to Jet all the others keep their stolen goods. Then because they are afraid of each other, they agree not to fight and thereby the various evil forces of hell come to a dead lock and are inoperative for awhile. This dead lock is called preserving the status quo. I I said that the greatest group of Christian nations is made np of the British gjnpire, the United States of America, France and Italy. Bat possibly the oldest of all the Chris tian nations is Armenia. The Arme nians are devout Christians, but they do not happen to be Catholics, Presbyterians, Baptists or Metho dists. They are so firm in their faith that for centuries they have been dying because of their religion. But they were not good enough to be allowed membership in the League of Nations, of which Great Britian, France and Italy are such important members. Some of the Armenians possess valuable property. The Ar menian women are desirable. But Armenia as a nation Is too small to disturb the status quo. The Turks are the natural enemies ef the Armenians, juat aa evil is the( enemy of good. The Turks are slave traders. They are filthy. They mi,Kf ai, pviygamiii. mere la only one rood thing about a Turk: he ia so constituted that ha nnii die like anybody else. This fact ta the only thing that could possibly entitle him to be called a human be-' ing, and he ia human onlv when hm ia dead. But he always Uvea too long. He has been called The Un rpeakable Turk." Gladstone called a contemporary Turkish Sultan "Abdul the Damned." He ought to have damned all the Turke and gotten Salan'a receipt for them. Since the late war tha iwinin. of the Turk is tha destruction of defenseless Christians wherever he csn find them, and he finds them in various parts of Syria and in Arms nla. He kills the men and babies and the aged of both aexes, and carries away the young women to be sold into slavery. He does "all that the devil would do If run stark mad"' And within a few years these unspeakable atrocities have been practised upon hundreds of thou ssnds of Christians, and so far as I can learn, not one of the four great Christian powers baa fired a ahot or sent a soldier to protect their help less brethern. But firing shots and sending sol diers cost money. Also the Turks are not murdering our people and stealing our wives and daughters. Then there is India to be considered. If the Treaty of Serves should be carried out, England might have a revolution on hands in the Orient And revolutions are expensive things, and other nations beside Germany can treat their agreements aa scraps of paper. Then there is the balance of power in Europe, and to disturb the balance of power might give the Dardanelles to France or to Russia, and England would never like that What are a few hundred! thousand Christisns, whom we hkve never seen, even if they are going to be murdered, when the government of an ancient seaport Is in question? Therefore, when the Armenians and Syrians ask for succor, ask to be saved from death and destruction as Individusls and as peoples, ask for Christisn charity, the Church people of England, America, Francs and Italy can proudly hold up their heads and say, "Go on and die But don't make so much noise about it! We dont want to offend the Turks. Our governments are pre serving the status quo." Byron. Don Juan Canto VIII. Ne Help, "fir. It's a cold world."
