The nation’s religious faithful came again face to face with tragic reality that Christians are being murdered for their faith.
CLEVELAND, Oct. 7, 2015 – As the gunman at the Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, classroom asked victims to identify their faith asking “Are you Christian?” it must have been terrifying. A popular social media meme following the shooting was “The most courageous person in America was the second person shot and killed at Umpqua.”
For that person knew that by answering “yes,” he or she would be killed by a madman.
This is a defining moment for Christian martyrdom in America as the nation’s religious faithful once again came face to face with what Christians across the globe have dealt with for years:
Christians are being murdered for their faith.
There is a war on Christianity, and President Obama refuses to acknowledge it, speak out against it or take steps to prevent it. Tragically in many ways, his administration’s action to marginalize and minimize Christianity in America gives free reign to those extreme Islamic terrorists and other haters of Christianity in America.
Where is the line in the sand when the president will finally acknowledge that there are terrorists, both in the Middle East and here on our shores, who are willing and able to exterminate Christians because of their beliefs? When will he defend Christians who want to practice their faith and not have to sacrifice their very lives for that faith?
The answer is tragically quite simple. This president’s moral values and principles are missing in action. Obama had an opportunity to share the last dying embrace of those college victims’ faith when they bravely answered “yes” to their Christianity before they were executed.
Obama neither acknowledged nor bore witness to their stand for Christianity even in the face of their certain death. (more at Communities Digital News)
