    What's your point? The government has helped all Iraqi citizens regardless of their religious affiliation. You have absolutely no clue what private churches or christian ministries throughout the US have done. So, who were you referring too exactly?

    Journalist Asks Bush to Protect Iraqi Christians

    The question we posed in our column remains valid: Does Bush want to go down in history as the U.S. President who launched a war that resulted in the destruction of the Christian community in Iraq?

    ------------------------------------

    Neglect of Iraqi Christians by President Bush

    Why has this administration sat idly by and allowed Christians to be butchered like sheep in Iraq? Haven't we done enough to support the Western powers that be? We fought for the allies in WWI we fought for the allies again in WWII! We gave our lives willingly under the agreement that we would be given a piece of land were we could dwell in safety.

    -----------------------------------

    Newsmax - Iraqi Christians Stranded in Jordan

    Top church leaders in the Assyrian, Chaldean, and evangelical communities confirmed that they had never received a visit from anyone from the U.S. embassy since the liberation of Iraq in 2003.

    ------------------------------------

    Mideast?s Christians Declining in Influence

    The story has been similar in Iraq. Of the 1.4 million Christians there at the time of the American invasion in 2003, nearly half have fled, according to American government reports and local Iraqi Christians. (The current estimate is that only 0.4 million remain in Iraq)

    Many left early in the war when they were attacked for working with the Americans, but the exodus gained speed when Christians became targets in Iraq’s raging sectarian war. Churches were bombed, and priests as well as lay Christians were murdered. As recently as March 2008, an archbishop was kidnapped and killed outside the northern city of Mosul.

    Full Text of Iraqi Constitution - washingtonpost.com

    Article 2:
    First: Islam is the official religion of the State and it is a fundamental source of legislation:
    A. No law that contradicts the established provisions of Islam may be established.

    ---------------------------------------

    How can Republcians claim knowledge and support for something they clearly REFUSE to learn anything about?

    And once again, I provide links, but it doesn't stop ignorant people from calling me "stupid".

    So, you wanted the United States government to specifically only offer help to one group of Iraqi's based on religious affiliation, and because they did not, you're bashing them? Gotta love it. :lol:

    So, you're now saying that you don't think the government should have specifically helped Iraqi Christians? Which is it then? Why don't you qualify your point more thoroughly then and explain what this thread was all about?
