Refugee crisis hits prime-time but Christians left ‘out in cold’

As U.S. and European leaders reach out with open arms to tens of thousands of Muslim refugees flooding into Europe, the groans of persecuted Christians in Syria, Iraq and Pakistan are increasingly drowned out.

President Obama announced Thursday that the U.S. will accept an additional 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next year, on top of the 1,600 that have already arrived.

The Syrian arrivals coming from United Nations refugee camps to date have been 95 percent Muslim.

    Are there any christians left in the camps? I’ve read that the muslims have been killing the christians even in the camps.

    How did that 5% slip through? You can bet an internal investigation is under way.

    they cross deserts, mountains, the Mediterranean Sea

    a highly organized and funded invasion… not refugees

    No one wants the Christian’s vote. No, really, I will never forget the sneer that crossed the face of the federal Liberal campaigner on my doorstep, when I pointed out that I could not vote for a party so pro-abortion that the party leader, Justin Trudeau, would not allow a pro-life MP. He knew it did not matter. Nor do the fates of most Christians today. Christians who are not prepared to deny their faith must decide wisely how they want to use their votes. Denyse O’Leary, Ottawa

      Good post! Sadly true!

        But the Christians not prepared to deny their faith will be assailed by people who say they “don’t care” about the transgender poor, or whatever. How many young people, educated by union trendies, will stand firm?

    Interesting and critical to also note that this invasion is from Turkey, not exactly a war-torn country from which refugees need to flee. A Muslim pretext for a slow invasion, bolstered by the West’s deep self-hatred.

    This attitude of self-loathing has infected nearly all my friends and arises every time the subject of world events arises. I see it every day, and it’s almost impossible to engage in a conversation when this conversation-stopping canard is used.

    No point in mentioning the events – it just creates a spin-cycle of argument. I think conservative thought has been swept away in this tsunami of lies.

    I hear there’s a vastly wealthy organization in this place called the Vatican. Maybe someone should call them up and ask.

    Obama wants more of his co-religionists here.
