REMARKS: National Religious Broadcasters Presidents Council

October 2, 2013 in Politics & Elections

From Boston to Zanzibar, Christians are under attack. The President tries to gloss over who is attacking and killing Christians. The media describes the killings as ‘sectarian.’ But the truth is the truth, there is a worldwide war on Christians by a fanatical element of Islam.

Elsewhere in Syria, Islamic rebels have filmed beheadings of their captives and celebrated by eating the heart of an enemy soldier. Two Christian bishops have been kidnapped and one priest recently killed.
In Zanzibar, a priest was shot in the head on his way to church by two Muslim youths. A message by the Muslim Renewal said, ‘We thank our young men, trained in Somalia, for killing an infidel. Many more will die. We will burn homes and churches. We have not finished: …read more
