By Arson Baker
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."
