Did you know that Christians are experiencing the greatest wave of persecution in history?
Did you know that Iraq has lost two-thirds of its Christian population since 2003?
Did you know that Muslim radicals are burning churches, massacring worshippers, and now even crucifying Christians?
And did you know that our government is tragically and inexcusably providing billions of dollars in aid to some of the world’s worst persecutors?
Amidst unprecedented persecution, it’s time for unprecedented action. It’s time for America to deliver a clear message: Not one dime for persecution.
We’re in a crisis, and we need a maximum diplomatic effort to protect the very existence of the Christian faith in the world’s most volatile regions. We’re fighting for freedom in Pakistan, Iran, Sudan, and across the Middle East and North Africa.
ISIS terrorists in Iraq are decimating Christians and destroying Christian landmarks.
Now these worse-than-al Qaeda jihadists reportedly have control of chemical weapons. If they are crucifying Christians in Syria, imagine what they would do to Christian towns with chemical weapons in Iraq.
In Nigeria, the radical terrorist group Boko Haram daily massacres Christians as they worship.
Never have we witnessed such violent persecution of Christians, even in this treacherous area of the world.
Christians are fleeing for their lives. Some estimate that there may be fewer than 50,000 Christians in Iraq in the next ten years if nothing changes.
Christians are being slaughtered. America, the land built on religious freedom, must take a stand. We cannot continue funding governments that perpetuate persecution.
