    Over ten years, eleven Christians were killed per hour for being Christians, according to Vatican analyst John Allen in 2013. Allen calls it a Global War on Christians. This war is still going on today.

    Christians all over the world are being martyred at thrice the number in the last two years, says Catholic News Agency.

    Last week, Father Douglas Bazi described to the National Press Club what it is like for a Christian living in Iraq. ““There is no life in Iraq for my people,” he said. “They call my church the church of martyrs or the church of blood.”

    “My church in Baghdad been blowed up, blowed up in front of me,” Bazi said. “I survived twice. They bombed my car. I got shot in my leg by an AK-47.

    “I was kidnapped for nine days. They used the hammer to broke my teeth, my nose, and my back.”

    Exactly how many Christians have died? It is difficult to accurately count heads when people keep losing theirs.

    We hear much about the flow of migrants in general but not much about Christian migrants in particular. How many have fled their homes, like the ones that tried to get into Turkey last year when ISIS took over their towns? Turkey closed its border to them.

    Where are these Christians now? Right now there are approximately 250,000 Christians dwelling in Syria and Iraq. Just ten years ago, there were some 2 million.


    Last week, Congress voted unanimously to call the Christian genocide, genocide, and set a deadline of March 17th for the administration to make the genocide designation official. For what is likely the first time since becoming Secretary of State, John Kerry is meeting a deadline. News broke just a little while ago, “Secretary of State John Kerry has determined ISIS is committing genocide against Christians in Iraq and Syria and will make an official announcement and declaration of genocide later today."

    OK. Good. Now, what are we going to do about it? Something other than telling Christians to “get off their high horse,” one hopes. After all, Genocide is a crime under international law. The US joined 147 other nations in signing a 1948 treaty promising to work together to "to liberate mankind from this odious scourge.”

    Perhaps we need another deadline.

    They ARE rushing just a bit in the murder of Christians in Iraq.

    Even dumb Muslims can count the days until their free ride ends January 20th.

    What can we do for the Christian's? Pray for them?

    But as for genocide, it is not against any law, except if you perpetrate it without the order and consent of one of the superpowers.

    The original rant is confusing genocide with terrorism.
