Barack Obama’s Christmas message to you is to open our doors to those strangers in need of shelter – undoubtedly illegal aliens and refugees. He hasn’t been taking Christian refugees in as a rule, oddly.
Everything for Obama is preachy, condescending and political.
He forgot to mention the Christian genocide.
Why doesn’t he remember Christians and help them as they are persecuted throughout the world?
Christians are being persecuted throughout the mid-East, Asia and Africa. The regions’ Christian population is down from 20% to 4% in the last century. It is the smallest minority population in the region. Christianity is all but eradicated.
The mass exodus of Christians from the Middle East post-Arab Spring is the largest reported and is being ignored or barely touched upon by the media.
The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom reported that “the flight of Christians out of the region is unprecedented and it’s increasing year by year.” In our lifetime alone “Christians might disappear altogether from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Egypt.”
Christians are being persecuted in Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, Algeria, Iran, Turkey, Indonesia, Tanzania, Uzbekistan and Russia (particularly the North Caucasus, where the Tsarnaevs trace their heritage).
Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va) traveled extensively through the region and released a 14-page report warning of the oppression and the mass exodus of Christians. The report is titled, “First the Saturday People, Then the Sunday People: The Exodus of Jews and Christians from the Middle East.”
“Over the span of a few decades, the Middle East, with the exception of Israel, has virtually been emptied of Jews,” the congressman said in a recent report.
“While it remains to be seen whether the historic exodus of Christians from the region will prove to be as dramatic as what has already happened to the Jewish community, it is without question devastating, as it threatens to erase Christianity from its very roots,” he cautioned.
“Christian leaders in the West must begin to speak out about what is happening not only in Syria but in the Middle East and other parts of South Central Asia.”
He called for a special envoy at the State Department to protect and preserve religious minority communities in the mid-East and South Central Asia. He also asked for a relief fund to address their economic hardships in 2013.
Of course nothing was done.
It is so much worse now under ISIS.
When Obama helped put Morsi in charge, he allowed the persecution of Christians. When he helped fight Assad, he destroyed Christianity in the region – Assad protected Christians. The US is helping those who kill Christians.
Obama has completely ignored the tribulations of Christians. He might declare Yezidis a population under genocide. It will give them legal protections but it’s unlikely he will do the same for Christians though they are obviously in the same position.
In a video address to President Barack Obama, House Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) reminded the president about the brutal persecution of Christians, Yazidis, and other religious groups by the Islamic State, questioned why Obama has been so “appallingly silent” on the issue, and added that Obama’s refusal to name these groups as “genocide victims” would be “one of the most disgraceful chapters in your administration’s shameful and abhorrent response to the Islamic State.”

The reason is obvious. Obama hates Christians. If he is a Christian as he says, he’s a self-loathing one. My guess is he’s an atheist who blames Christians and Jews for everything that has gone wrong for Muslims.
Obama also won’t act when traditional Americans want him to act – it’s an ego thing.
Obama’s Christmas message this year ignored the persecution of Christians but he did plead with Christians to be nice, subtly encouraging his endless, unlawful immigration policy, with these words, “Today, like millions of Americans and Christians around the world, our family celebrates the birth of Jesus and the values how he lived in his own life,” Obama said. “Treating one another with love and compassion. Caring for those on society’s margins: the sick and the hungry, the poor and the persecuted, the stranger in need of shelter — or simply an act of kindness.”
Stay in Hawaii Obama!
His Christmas message.
Here are some of his past messages to Christians.
In February, he compared ISIS barbarity to the Crusades. He told Christians to get off your high horse [look what you did a thousand years ago when Europe was overrun by totalitarian Muslims].
He recalled the savagery carried out nearly 1,000 years ago in the name of Christ while speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., but his equivocation fell on outraged ears. He forgot to mention the savagery of the Islamists of the time.
He mocked Christians as sometimes less-than-loving one Easter. Any message he has for Christians is worthless.
