Vicar of Baghdad under investigation: Alleged that money paid to free sex slaves ended up with ISIS

(RNS) The Rev. Andrew White, acclaimed as the Anglican “Vicar of Baghdad” for his outreach among Iraqi Christians, has been suspended with pay and his British charity placed under official investigation over allegations that money used to redeem sex slaves ended up in the hands of the Islamic State.

“We never gave the bad guys one penny,” White said in denying the charges.

The U.K.’s official Charity Commission on Thursday (June 23) “confirmed that it opened a statutory inquiry into the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East on June 9, 2016.”

This sounds like a politically correct anti-christian witch hunt; “Lets show the Muslims we’re going after them Christians too”
