U.S. Quiet When Christians Die Worldwide

March 8, 2011

Christians are being slaughtered and persecuted all over the world – in Egypt, in Iraq and elsewhere. Yes, Jesus predicted that would happen. But my question is, where is the outrage from people who are quick to condemn when Muslims are targeted? It’s always open season on Jews, too.

Last week, the only Christian governmental minister in Pakistan was gunned down in the streets. Why? Because he favored liberalizing Pakistan’s so-called blasphemy law, which itself has led to executions by stoning and prison for anyone perceived to speak ill of Mohammed or Islam. And the real God help any Muslim who converts to anything else, including unbelief.

Why isn’t the Obama administration condemning such behavior and putting pressure on governments to stop it?
