Christians are being persecuted not only by the Obama Administration’s Department of Defense, but Obama’s operatives are now arming Syrian “rebels” (terrorists) who are systematically killing Christians in that war-ravaged nation.
The attack on Christianity is taking place under Obama’s watch and is likely to get worse.
Recently, the Department of Defense has blocked at least 50 Catholic priests from saying Mass and giving the sacraments at military facilities around the world. The excuse is that we have a government shut-down.
This is happening despite the fact that Congress passed a bill – and Obama signed it – that instructed the DoD to continue paying contract employees who were supporting our troops.
Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel consulted with the Department of Justice (run by the notorious Eric Holder) and they both determined that permitting civilian chaplains to conduct services doesn’t contribute to the moral or well-being of service personnel!
Catholic Priest Ray Leonard, who serves as Catholic chaplain for the Naval Submarine Base in Kings Bay, George, is now suing the DoD over this violation of his congregation’s right to the free exercise of religion! He is being represented by the Thomas More Law Center.
Senator Paul: Worldwide Attacks On Christians – Aided By Obama Administration
The Obama Administration isn’t just waging war against Christians through the Department of Defense. He’s also providing arms to Islamic terrorists who are beheading and slaughtering men, women, and children in Syria.
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) recently told a Values Voter audience: “From Boston to Zanzibar, there’s a worldwide war on Christianity. Christians are being attacked around the world, but you won’t hear much about it on the evening news because the answer’s not convenient. It doesn’t fit the narrative we have been told about radical Islam.
“The president tries to gloss over who is attacking and killing Christians. The media describes the killings as ‘sectarian.’ But the truth is, a worldwide war on Christians is being waged by a fanatical element of Islam.”
Senator Paul continued:
“[T]he whole truth is that there is a minority of Muslims who condone killing of Christians, but, unfortunately, that minority number is in the tens of millions.” A Pew Research poll showed that 21% of Egyptians, 15% of Jordanians, and 13% of Pakistani Muslims think terrorism against Christians is acceptable.
So, Obama and his anti-Christian minions are waging a two-front war against Christianity. One is taking place inside the U.S. military and the other is taking place in Muslim countries. In Syria, Obama is arming Islamists who are killing Christians; in Egypt, he’s cancelled military aid to the Egyptian Army – because they overthrew a Muslim Brotherhood dictator. There’s a clear pattern here. Obama hates Christianity and loves Islamist fanatics.
