For the past several years, Muslims have been attacking Christians in countries like Nigeria and the United States government has said nothing to condemn the slaughter.
Like many nations in the area and in the Middle East, Nigeria is predominately Muslim. However, there is a significant Christian population that lives in the northern regions of the African nation. However, Nigeria’s Muslims are determined to eradicate their country of any and all Christians.
I’ve written in the past of Christians being slaughtered in Nigeria. In one attack, a Muslim suicide bomber attacked a Christian church during services, killing 15 and wounding 40 others. Since many Christians attend church on Christmas Day, this has become a favorite time for Muslim attacks. On one recent Christmas Day, Muslims bombed several Christian churches in northern Nigeria, killing at least 25 and wounding dozens more. After these Christmas Day attacks, the Obama administration issued an impersonal short condemnation and nothing more was said or done.
In mid-November last year, Ann Buwalda, Executive Director of Jubilee Campaign said that around 1,200 Christians had been killed in northern Nigeria. She didn’t say how many more had been wounded in the attacks, but surely it was several thousand. Speaking to the Christian Post, she said:
“We documented 1,200 Nigerian Christians in the North of Nigeria who were killed, some by Boko Haram, some by Fulani herdsmen. These two types of attacks are persistent within several of the Northern Nigerian states.”
“With our statistic of more Christians have been killed in Northern Nigeria than the rest of the world combined.”
“Statistically, we are looking at approximately 60 percent of the world’s Christians that were killed for their faith last year was in Northern Nigeria.”
With Nigeria being the center of Christian genocide in the world, all US Secretary of State John Kerry can condemn Nigeria for is their recent ban on same sex marriages. After Nigeria passed its law, Kerry released an official statement through the State Department saying:
“The United States is deeply concerned by Nigeria’s enactment of the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act. Beyond even prohibiting same sex marriage, this law dangerously restricts freedom of assembly, association, and expression for all Nigerians.”
What about the freedom of Nigeria’s Christians to assemble, associate and express their faith? When they do assemble, they always do so in fear of being attacked by members of the religion of peace, or so we are told.
Kerry’s statement condemning Nigeria’s new law suggested that such a law was in conflict with international law. But isn’t the intentional genocide of any group of people a violation of international law? Shouldn’t the world community, as well as the US, be up in arms over the murder and wounding of thousands of Christians?
Both Barack Obama and John Kerry claim to be Christians, but they are so busy protecting the sinful and abominable lifestyle of homosexuals that they can’t be bothered to protect Christians who seems to have a much stronger faith than their own.
How many Americans would go to church on Sunday morning if they knew there was a chance that they could be the subject of a bomb attack? I bet many of our nation’s churches would be nearly empty. But the Christians in Nigeria hold their faith dearly and are willing to risk their lives just to worship Jesus who died for them.
Secretary of State John Kerry’s actions and lack thereof are sickening to me as are those of President Barack Obama. Their liberal anti-Christian agendas are more important to them than the lives of Christians. Obviously gays mean more to them than Christians who hold to God’s Word. What does that say about their own Christian faith?
