While on Twitter I read this message from a follower, “Tomorrow beginning at 6 am Tweetfest to #SaveTheChristians”

So, I will admit, I have not vetted the group behind this effort but…WHO CARES!

Someone – somewhere must speak out!

Christians across the globe are being slaughtered in record numbers, many of them by Islamic extremists.

I have been very disappointed with the lack of outrage to the horrific slaughter of Christians lately.

Apparently,I am not the only one.

Yesterday, Kirsten Powers published an Op-Ed where she shamed President Obama for his failure to speak out:

    If a Christian mob on a ship bound for Italy threw 12 Muslims to their death for praying to Allah, does anyone think the president would have been so disinterested? When three North Carolina Muslims were gunned down by a virulent atheist, Obama rightly spoke out against the horrifying killings. But he just can’t seem to find any passion for the mass persecution of Middle Eastern Christians or the eradication of Christianity from its birthplace.

    Religious persecution of Christians is rampant worldwide, as Pew has noted, but nowhere is it more prevalent than in the Middle East and Northern Africa, where followers of Jesus are the targets of religious cleansing.

Talk Show Host, Michael Savage recently asked, where the righteous Jews were who are not speaking out against the persecution of Christians from ISIS or ISIL today?

The “never again” is happening again today,” he said on his radio show.

Christians in Texas rallied in Dallas last fall to bring the plight of the persecuted Christians to the public. Despite the group sending out press releases to every news outlet in the state of Texas including e-mails and phone calls only a few media outlets bothered to show up at the rally. In addition, even though hundreds came out for the event, there are many more Christians in the are who did not bother.

A new campaign making its way across America hopes to bring awareness to the persecuted Christians. The campaign asks believers to wear orange jumpsuits to show solidarity with the martyrs and has been organized by D.C. pastor, Rev. Patrick Mahoney.

Months ago, Rev. Mahoney and his supporters challenged the National Organization for Women to speak out on behalf of Christian women who were sold into sex slavery by the Islamic terrorist group, ISIS.

The feminist group virtually ignored the protesters as did the news media.

It will be interesting what Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and others say as they hit the campaign trail.

ISIS Heart of terror book

An encouraging audio interview with a member from the organization, Back to Jerusalem, says that Christians are hoping to evangelize ISIS. The author of the Book, ISIS the Heart of Terror, says that they have confirmed at least one ISIS convert after love was shown him from the very people ISIS had planned to persecute.

The #SavetheChrtistians hashtag follows other efforts such as the #WeAreN and #WeAreNazarene which hoped to show solidarity with the Christians in Iraq who were some if the first to be slaughtered by ISIS.

Capture

Hopefully, as others learn a way that they can speak out- they will do so.

Pastor Stephen Broden of the Fair Parks Bible Fellowship Church in Dallas, Texas was a guest on Point of View Radio today discussing an upcoming rally for persecuted Christians.

He said the group objects to the use of tax funds going to nations that sponsor the persecution of Christians.

In addition to the rally, Pastor Broden also speaks out on the plight of the unborn targeted by abortion. Pastor Broden has been warning the black community about the targeting of African Americans by abortion giant Planned Parenthood and was featured in the film, Maafa21, which exposes the racist agenda of abortion.

Things Americans Can Do to Help Persecuted Christians in Iraq

Posted in Islam, persecution with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2014 by saynsumthn

Iraqi born pastor Jalil Dawood of the Arabic Church of Dallas, who, along with other Christian leaders will be holding a rally on Sept. 14 in support of Iraqis who are being persecuted by the Islamic State, says there are five things Americans can do today to help their brothers and sisters in Christ.

What Americans can do today is write to their representatives and tell them the U.S. government needs to take more aggressive action toward the Islamic State, because this group is not only a threat to Iraq, it’s a threat to America, eventually. And we need to deal with them now, before it’s too late,” Dawood told The Christian Post.

I heard the president say last week that he doesn’t have a strategy. Well, ISIS’ strategy is to kill us. Their strategy is to convert us and kill us,” he asserted.

The second thing Americans can do, he said, is to provide tangible assistance to the 250,000 refugees in Iraq through trusted nonprofit organizations that are helping Christians and other religious minorities who’ve been forced to leave their homes to flee the terrorist organization.

Broden

Pastor Stephen Broden of Fair Park Bible Fellowship, who will be a featured speaker at the Dallas rally, told CP Thursday that three of the nonprofits that have been helping Iraqi Christians are Open Doors, Samaritan’s Purse and Voice of the Martyrs.

While the Sept. 14 rally is being held in Dallas, Dawood is encouraging everyone who lives outside North Texas to hold simultaneous rallies in their communities; not only to show support for persecuted Christians and religious minorities in Iraq, but to pray and find tangible ways to help.

Do something practical, not only in words but in deeds,” he advised. “We need to speak; we need to shout to the Lord, we need to shout to the nation.”

This has to do with people of our faith. This is not an Iraqi issue, this is a global issue and it will touch us if we don’t do something about it,” Dawood emphasized.

“Like Bonhoeffer said, if we are silent in the face of evil we are agreeing with it, we are part of it; we become accomplices and are allowing it to happen. We don’t need to wait. We need to take action now and be heard before it gets too late.”
