The “Islamic State” is reportedly crucifying children in Iraq!
Is there a “Holocaust” of Christians going on in Iraq because of the militant jihadist terror organization who calls itself “The Islamic State” (ISIS)?
I have heard reports saying that ISIS has painted an “N” ( standing for “Nazarene” ) on the homes of all the Christians in areas controlled by the terrorist group and have given the Christians residing in these homes an ultimatum to convert to Islam or die!
It is my understanding that 300,000 Christians are now fleeing the onslaught of the jihadist butchers and that the ISIS thugs are actually crucifying children!
Other reports indicate that when The United States first invaded Iraq in 2003 there were almost a million and a half Christians living there and now the number has dwindled to somewhere around 400,000.
An article I read on “The Christian Post” says that ISIS has been systematically beheading children as part of their murderous incursions and do I need to tell anybody that I find that news to be one of the biggest shockers I have ever read?
I know there are going to be a lot of Right Wing idiots who will be trying to place the blame for this situation on President Obama and the Administration but this is not the time for that kind of Rightie bullshit!
As a blogger it is not important to me right now how the situation in Iraq developed. What is important right now to me as a blogger is that Christians are reportedly suffering terror, horror and death at the hands of murderers and that something needs to be done to stop it and to make sure it is stopped totally, completely – – and that it is stopped completely enough that it cannot raise its ugly head again!
I call upon everyone who reads this blog to stop for a minute and remember that we can all pray for our Christian Brothers and Sisters in Iraq if we can’t do much of anything else at this point.
I think we need to pray . . to pray fervently and unceasingly . . to pray right now . . tomorrow . . . and every day until God intervenes and saves those who are living this nightmare.
I also think we ought to be contacting our elected representatives in Washington and in State Houses and in the Government of our individual communities and beseech them to use their political power and influence to bring this horror to the attention of the highest elected officials in our land and to get something done for these folks who now find themselves in probably the most precarious situation they have ever encountered or that they will ever encounter.
This news hit me like a thunderbolt. This is the kind of thing that we don’t often think about . . . something we find it hard to believe is really happening to other people . . . but I am glad I did hear about it because now I can sense the urgency of seeing something done about it.
Americans have a voice and I am hoping and praying millions are, even now, lifting that voice on behalf of the suffering Christian Peoples in Iraq and wherever else the Devil has decided to unleash his forces of evil against God’s Children who follow Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
If half of what I am reading about this horror is true then I am of the personal opinion that The United States cannot mount a powerful and sustained drive against these thugs quick enough or on a large enough scale to satisfy me and I will not bitch for a single minute if it costs me a few more dollars in taxes to make it happen!
I think it is time for my fellow Citizens to get on the horn and demand action be taken to save the Christians in this war-torn region – – – I think they have suffered enough!
I think it is time for a lot of the more radical of the Right Wing “Supposed-to-be” Christian Conservative website authors to take a few minutes away from publishing all their hate rhetoric against the President and the Democrats, The Progressives and the Liberals and join in with a humanitarian Christian plea on behalf of suffering humanity . . . just one time would be effective . . . if only they could be convinced to take that step. I am hoping there are a few out there willing to take that step to use their writing skills to cry out for mercy and justice for the oppressed Christians in Iraq and wherever else on the face of this planet that Christians are suffering persecutions at the hands of killers who seem to have no consciences whatsoever!
They are reportedly beheading innocent Christian children!
They are reportedly crucifying Children on their rampages.
It is being called “A Christian Holocaust ” in some places.
