Persecuted Christians – Slaughtered because they Believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior

As you attend your Christian church today, consider the strength of your faith.   Are you willing to suffer verbal abuse and even lawsuits the Leftists?  What’s your price for denouncing your closely held beliefs?   Do you crumble when the Religion of Leftism insists that you are a “human rights” violator because you refuse to photograph a wedding ceremony between two men or two women?   Are you too "politically correct" to tell a young woman that an abortion stops a beating heart?  When did murder become a "woman’s right to choose"?  

In America, Christians are routinely demonized by the Leftists and their media allies who call us every name imaginable simply because we refuse to practice the Religion of Leftism.   Christians practice the Religion of Peace and want only to be left alone to do so.  We Christians do not FORCE others to practice our faith.  Invitations to attend church are not mandatory.    

In America, I see more and more of us practicing “cotton candy Christianity.”   We have gutless pastors  whose adoration for Leftism trumps their adoration of Jesus.  We have pastors who would rather perform wedding ceremonies for gay couples than tell them that it’s against their religious beliefs.  We have pastors who sit by and say nothing when a woman “chooses” to stop a tiny heart that beats within her womb.  We have pastors who lecture Arizona senators and representatives about how it’s "un-Christian" of them to not force taxpayers to be charitable.  

They all offend God and Jesus, and call it "human rights."   It isn’t enough that the Leftists want to practice their own religion.  No, they aren’t content until they force everybody to participate in their religious practices. 

Their freedom to swing their fists ends at my nose. 

This is what Christianity Looks Like in other Countries.

Estimates vary, but it’s probably correct that between 100,000 and 176,000, maybe more, Christians are slaughtered every year simply because they are Christians.   Right now, Syrian Christians are terrified that John McCain’s Rebel friends will help topple Assad.  McCain has gone on record to deny the Truth that a Syrian Christian woman told him:  She is not a fan of Assad, but at least he left Christians alone to practice their religion in peace.  McCain’s Rebels include extremist Islamists who will murder Christians.  

But the arrogant idiot McCain lectured her about how he knows more than she does about Syria, and how his brilliant analysis of his friends “the rebels” is far superior to hers.   

The organization International Christian Concern also disagrees with McCain.  They have documented the reality of torture and death that Christians are already facing from McCain’s Islamist “rebels.”  

As stated on their website here: 

“As Syrian Christians, we used to live in peace under Assad. Assad is not a perfect man, yet he gave the Christians freedom and rights the same as Muslims. We could wear what we wanted and we had churches all over the country.

“Then when the uprising started, we began to see many Islamist jihadists from Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia. They began to kill us (the Christians) and other minorities who are considered infidels. The Islamists killed us with knives and even decapitated some and burned down our churches.

“Now, Christians are not welcome under their Islamist rule. No Western country will give us visas. Many times, we feel like the whole world, want to see the Christians of Syria slaughtered!”

THE NEED. 

If you don’t have the courage to stand up against verbal abuse and lawsuits from the Leftists, then at least DONATE to those who have the courage to practice their faith, in spite of torture and death! 

“Since the civil war in Syria began, Christians have increasingly suffered attacks from radical Islamists. ICC receives reports of murders, rapes, and other atrocities committed against Syrian Christians on a daily basis!

"In the past 18 months, a staggering 2 million Syrians have fled their country to seek refuge in neighboring countries. Syrian Christian leaders are asking for our help for those Christians who have fled. Unable to work, they are desperate. Help is necessary to sustain the families and very little aid has come to them so far.

"We are working directly with churches on the ground to provide the basic needs of food and shelter, so that children and families can stay intact and healthy. To meet the need, we are partnering with other Christian groups to provide food for these Christians."

Syrian Christian Woman Attacks John McCain on Syria: 9/5/2013 Town Hall

John McCain’s response to this Syrian Christian woman, whose 18-year old cousin was killed 10 days before by the Syrian Free Army "Rebels," is callously arrogant.   He is condescending toward a woman whose family can be traced back to Biblical times and currently lives in Syria.  They are among the Christian minority who, if the Rebels defeat Assad, will most likely be brutalized and murdered at their hands.  But John McCain knows better.  "I, too, have been to Syria.  I know the people (rebels).  I’ve met with them.  I know who they are."  

Do you remember the Potemkin Villages?  John McCain got the ‘Potemkin village" treatment.  He is willfully ignorant and drunk with power.

9/11/2001 Timeline

The timeline begins at 5:45 am on September 11, 2011:  Hijackers Pass Through Security Screening in Portland, Maine.  On the morning of 9/11, a total of nineteen terrorists will hijack four California-bound commercial airplanes shortly after their departures from airports in Boston, Massachusetts; Newark, New Jersey; and the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.

Hijackers Mohamed Atta and Abdul Aziz al-Omari pass through security at Portland International Jetport in Maine at 5:45 a.m. Atta and al-Omari board a commuter flight to Boston Logan International Airport, where they connect to American Airlines Flight 11. Three other hijackers will join Atta and al-Omari aboard Flight 11.

Less than two hours later, the five terrorists who will hijack American Airlines Flight 77 are videotaped as they pass through Washington Dulles International Airport’s west checkpoint. Three of the hijackers, Nawaf al-Hazmi, Khalid al-Mihdhar, and Majed Moqed set off metal detectors, but no weapons are found. They proceed to the gate. The hijackers are carrying concealed knives on their persons or in their carry-on luggage.

Before 9/11, airports were not required to videotape security checkpoints. At that time, knives were allowed on planes if the blade was less than four inches in length.

6:00 A.M.  New York City Polling Stations Open….

Were the Founders Inspired by God?

Recently, Gilbert Watch received an email from a reader criticizing one of our Contributing Editors, Silence Dogood, for quoting Thomas Paine.  His concern was that, based on his reading a book written by Thomas Paine, it seemed odd that Silence Dogood, who works tirelessly "to ensure that our Country and its Divine principles are left intact for future generations," would quote a man who stated that there was "no religion…more derogatory to the Almighty…than..Christianity."  His criticism that Silence might not be informed about the Founders writings implicitly included Gilbert Watch as well.  

Both Gilbert Watch and Silence Dogood thought you might be interested in reading this gentleman’s email.  His personal information has been removed, but not a single word of his relevant statements have been edited or removed.  Following the reader’s email, you will see the responses from both Gilbert Watch and Silence Dogood.

 

Reader’s Email

According to your website, “Silence is a native Arizonan whose love of investigative research and drive for knowledge was ingrained early in life… Silence’s children are the prime motivation behind tireless work that ensures that our Country and its Divine principles are left intact for their generation and future generations to come.” Thomas Paine is then quoted: “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it.”  I found Thomas Paine to be an interesting choice. I read the articles titled “Will God Survive in Amerika? We have a Choice” and “The Role of Religion in The Founding Fathers’ Constitutional Formula.” In these articles, the writer refers to the anti-Christian “Amerikans” and the “secular left.” 

"Based on what I have read, many of the more well-known Founding Fathers were secularists meaning they were not exclusively allied or against any particular religion. However, some of them, especially Thomas Paine, had particular complaints against Christianity. In fact, he wrote an entire book on it. It is called “Age of Reason.”

"Has Silence, or any of the other contributors read it? I ask because I cannot imagine having read it and still quoting Thomas Paine on this website. For your reference, below is an excerpt from “Age of Reason.”

”Of all the systems of religion that ever were invented, there is no more derogatory to the Almighty, more unedifying to man, more repugnant to reason, and more contradictory to itself than this thing called Christianity. Too absurd for belief, too impossible to convince, and too inconsistent for practice, it renders the heart torpid or produces only atheists or fanatics. As an engine of power, it serves the purpose of despotism, and as a means of wealth, the avarice of priests, but so far as respects the good of man in general it leads to nothing here or hereafter.”

"By no means am I advocating Thomas Paine’s viewpoint. I just think it is important for people who use the Founding Fathers to support their position to be well-informed."
