Nearly 200 Christian churches destroyed in surge of violence

Boko-Haram

There was a surge of anti-Christian violence by Muslims around the world that included the destruction of nearly 200 Christian churches in Nigeria during a short period around October, according to a new report from the GateStone Institute.

The organization’s Raymond Ibrahim, who has documented his discoveries in “Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War in Christians,” released the assessment of the recent surge on Friday.

“In just two months, from August to October, nearly 200 Christian churches were destroyed in Nigeria by the Islamic organization Boko Haram and its Muslim allies, after their capture of towns and villages in the northeastern states of Borno and Adamawa,” the report said. “In the words of Rev. Gideon Obasogie, the director of Catholic Social Communication of Maiduguri Diocese in Borno State, ‘the group’s seizure of territory in both states has seen 185 churches torched and over 190,000 people displaced by [Boko Haram.]”

Ibrahim noted that, “Also in October, the Center for the Studies of Global Christianity in the United States concluded that, ‘About 100,000 Christians die every year because of their religious beliefs, that is to say one every five minutes. In addition, in many countries, many other religious minorities suffer violence and persecution. In countries such as Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Cameroon, Sudan, Pakistan, Somalia and Egypt the Christian elderly, women, men and their children live in conditions of total insecurity. They are driven from their homes; put in prison for blasphemy, and brutally killed during liturgical celebrations, churches are burned. Girls are kidnapped and forced to marry.’”

Among the other incidents of Muslim violence against Christians during that October period that were uncovered by Ibrahim include:

Actually Lou, you would be surprised what you would agree with in Scripture.  For instance, (not aimed at you), Proverbs says in essence, you can't fix stupid.  We are repeatedly, called to be humble.  Love your neighbor.  Whether you agree with the essence of Christ is a whole different matter, but I contend there are a number of Scriptural concepts that you would agree with wholeheartedly.  In fact, most of it is based around common sense.  You might be surprised.

Christians need to arm up and defend. And they must.

and Boehner tried to blame everything on harry reid, when it was the chicken shit speaker of the house that was too ball less to stand up to the democrats.

Right Al, the man has to be wearing lace panties under his suit.    Hope he falls down from one of his Drunks, and breaks his neck.     Actually, I think he was paid to leave his Balls in the drawer, great way to make a hell of a lucrative living!!

This will make NBC's headlines for SURE!

the aclu and the leader of Germany must be having orgasms over this

every church should keep a copy of the Koran in it so when muslims burn it then they are really burning allah

ARE OUR AMERICAN CHURCHES RISING UP AND DEMANDING THIS PERSECUTION STOP? No - the Presbyterian U.S.A. church is actually boycotting Israel as the oppressor - and ignoring the Muslims. The Christian churches in America are sponsoring the illegal aliens and abetting the  destruction of our demographic vote.

We have a huge voice in America - the voice of our churches who preach the role of the disciple. What are they doing with that obligation? They are IGNORING their brothers and sisters who are being slaughtered and then making themselves feel good by harboring and sponsoring illegals. Americans are suffering and our churches are committed to bringing in those we cannot support or educate. WE CANNOT SUPPORT THE WORLD. We can barely support our own. If you want to support the world, then go forth and be a missionary, but do not destroy our economy and demographics and culture in your blind obligation of faith.

I feel our churches need to go back to the Old Testament and take notes.

ALERT ALERT

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
