Rally in Dallas for Persecuted Christians

The Islamic group, ISIS or ISIL has slaughtered Christians and other religious minorities in the region. ISIS has taken captive women and children and sold them as sex slaves. As a result, many Christians have been forced to flee the area.

Now, Christians in America are calling for an end to this genocide.

In fact, Dallas area Pastors, churches, and concerned citizens in North Texas are coming together to show support for these Christian brothers and sisters under extreme persecution in Iraq.

Believers and concerned citizens are joining to bring attention to the genocide faced by Iraqi Christians.

The rally will take place at:
Dallas City Hall
1500 Marilla Street Dallas, TX
September 14, 2014 at 4:30pm

WHAT TO WEAR AT THE RALLY:

WEAreN

The Islamic State in Iraq is painting an Arabic “N”–for Nazarene–on the homes of Christians.

In a show of solidarity, Christians all across the world are adapting that letter, using it as a social media avatar or a logo.

Attendees are encouraged to print off the #WeAreN (red and white) image off the Facebook page and either wear it or carry it. In addition, those attending the rally can carry a red cross.

A press conference will be held days prior to this rally and will include dignitaries and local pastors.

The Press Release reads, in part:

The deliberate targeting and persecution of Christians by ISIS in Iraq, as well as the blatant attacks on Christian communities throughout the Middle East has caused great concern and offense within the Christian communities of Dallas, Fort Worth and surrounding counties. In Iraq, many Christians are fleeing their homes and cities to escape the brutal jihad against Christians at the hands of ISIS. Many are now refugees in need of humanitarian aid. As confirmed by the Center for the Study of Global Christianity and the Vatican, 100,000 Christians are murdered every year because of their faith. Open Doors Ministry has stated that 9 out of 10 countries cited for the worst atrocities against Christians are Muslim.

Iraqi born Pastor Jalil Dawood of the Arabic Church of Dallas and Pastor Stephen Broden of the Fair Park Bible Fellowship will be featured speakers at the rally.

In addition, other notable speakers and pastors will be present.
