Why are Christians silent? Why are we not forcing our Congress to act. Bring these Christians to the US and deport an equal number of non-citizen Muslims. It’s not religious discrimination against Muslims, Islam is not a religion but rather an evil cult of deception, intimidation, subjugation, death and destruction nothing more. It’s not racist, Islam is not a race. Islam is an ideological death cult. No more aid to Muslim countries, let the bastards exterminate each other.
‘Time Is Running Out’: US Congressman Asks Why Churches In The West Are Silent On Worldwide Christian Persecution

According to Wolf, the State Department urged Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) to oppose the Senate version of the bill until a hearing is held.
Wolf said he welcomes the hearing but Sen. John Kerry, chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, has never held it.
‘I am concerned that time is running out – both in terms of the legislative calendar for this year and in terms of the plight of these communities,’ Wolf said in a statement last week.
