A docudrama called Sing a Little Louder is based on a powerful true story from World War II.

Set in World War II Germany, the film tells the story of a young German boy who’s church was located next to the train tracks. Every Sunday at the same time, trains taking Jews to death camps passed by the church. One day, a train broke down. The cries and screams of the Jews being carted away were so loud, the pastor instructed the choir to sing louder to drown them out.

Juliana Taimoorazy, the film’s executive producer and President of the Iraqi Christian Relief Council, says the church in the West is no different than the small German church. While Christians in the Middle East are being persecuted and slaughtered for their faith, Christians in the West are singing a little louder.

“As we say “never again, never again!” Let us really walk the walk,” Taimoorazy implored. “There is a real genocide that is unfolding right in front of our eyes, so what is it that forces us to remain silent?”

Taimoorazy explained that some Christians don’t want to be viewed as Islamaphobes, others don’t believe the ancient Christian community in the Middle East is really Christian (it is, I can attest to this), and others have no clue what to do.

News Max’s Steve Malzberg points out an obvious problem — the media’s unwillingness to report Christian genocide.

The parallel is jarring, but is it inaccurate? What are we doing for those dying for their faith?
