In the Bible belt of the United States, sometimes we may indulge in a false sense of peace when it comes to the persecution of Christians. Out of sight, out of mind. . . I began studying how our brothers and sisters are doing in persecuted nations across the world, and my heart sank in guilt. That is when it really hit me. . Where are the groups and organizations rallying and protesting and standing up for the Christians who are being targeted around the world? Christianity is THE MOST PERSECUTED RELIGION. 90,000 Christians were killed for their faith in 2016, which is approximately a person every 6 minutes! (Censur)
Our brothers and sisters in Christ are the target of hate groups. They are being viciously targeted simply for their profession of faith. They are being killed and imprisoned while we sit here and sleep on our pews. Worse than that, is all of the people who are attacking President Trump for simply trying to keep the American people safe.
On another note, why is it, in the refugee program set forth by former President Obama, Christian refugees were not permitted to come to the United States? Only Muslim refugees were allowed to relocate to this nation.
According to WND approximately 90% of the refugees are Muslim. Why are we not reaching out to Christians who are being tortured and killed from these countries as well?
WASHINGTON >> President Donald Trump said Friday that Christians will be given priority to come to the United States as refugees and later signed an order to suspend the admission of refugees for 120 days and increase the vetting of potential refugees from predominantly Muslim nations to screen out “radical Islamic terrorists.”
“We don’t want them here,” Trump said in a signing ceremony at the Pentagon. “We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people.”
I am so happy to announce, we now have a POTUS who will stand for the persecuted Christians abroud! No more will our brothers and sisters be pushed out of line. Christians will be given priority! All I can say, is ITS ABOUT TIME!
