The clergy needs to stand up and protect Christians before it is too late to do so. Please read the following blog by the local ACT! for America chapter leader – Burkasrugly
In 2013 the definitive book on modern day Christian persecution was written by Raymond Ibrahim, a Coptic Christian. It is titled “Crucified Again”. In a well researched, well documented work Ibrahim proves that Muslims are waging a war of conquest and
annihilation against Christians. He proves to any open minded person that Muslims kill 95% of all the Christians who die for their faith every year in the 21st Century. The 47 Muslim majority countries are the worst offenders. In Saudi Arabia it is a capital offense for a person to openly practice their Christian faith or for that matter to be a Jew.
The book states that every 5 minutes on average a Christian is killed somewhere in the Muslim world. How does that work out on a yearly basis? Well that means every hour 12 Christians are killed by the followers of Allah. Every day these hate filled followers
of Mohammed slaughter 288 Christians. The monthly total works out to 8,640. So in terms of a year over 100,000 Christians are hung, decapitated, shot, murdered, stoned and yes, even crucified.
Extremist Muslims are also gleefully killing Jews, Hindus, atheists, homosexuals, Buddhists and moderate Muslims in staggering numbers. The Koran and Mohammed dictate this to be the fate of all unbelievers. Don’t believe me, just Google the Verses of the Sword.
Please note that not included in these statistics are perhaps another half million who are injured in these barbaric attacks. We haven’t spoken of the women who are raped or who are forced to undergo female genital mutilation, a Muslim endorsed practice. Nor have we mentioned the poor unfortunates who have suffered through floggings or amputations. Or the thousands of women like Julie Aftab who have been doused in disfiguring acid.
Meanwhile, nary a peep of protest is spoken by the Christian clergy. When is the last time, if ever, you have heard a sermon on the persecution of Christians from the pulpit of a church in our city? Have we forgotten that ministers are called to protect the flock of Christ under their care? The Christian clergy need to develop a collective backbone and speak with courage. Our freedom of worship is at stake.
Remember the words of the German theologian, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a courageous Lutheran who was martyred by the Nazis in World War II. “To remain silent in the face of evil is evil itself. Not to speak is to speak.”
By your silence you become complicit in the persecution of your fellow Christians. Stand up for the Truth!
