State Department: Muslims yes on immigration, Christians no July 17, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in disaster, episcopate, error, foolishness, General Catholic, Holy suffering, horror, Immigration, martyrdom, persecution, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
The State Department has signaled quite strongly that they will not be establishing special visas for Christians facing extermination in the Mideast. That this extermination is a direct result of disastrous US policy, which has caused the murder or flight of millions of Christians from their 2000 year old homeland, apparently has left them unmoved. Or, is this simply yet another instance of this administration’s blatant disregard, or even hostility, towards Christians?

According to Faith J.H. McDonnell of Philos Project, the Rt. Rev. Julian M. Dobbs, bishop of the Diocese of CANA East (Convocation of Anglicans in North America), revealed that part of U.S. foreign policy during an interaction with the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM). Dobbs made his case to the State Department on behalf of a group of Assyrian Christians who are desperate to leave northern Iraq.
“There is no way that Christians will be supported because of their religious affiliation,” the State Department said.
McDonnell reported that the Assyrian Christians received both the permission and blessing from their own bishop to leave Iraq. Until recently, church leaders in the region have urged Christians to stay in the Middle East; now they have concluded that their chances of survival are much better if they left.
Christianity in Iraq is going through one of its worst and hardest stages of its long history, which dates back to the first century,” Archbishop Bashar Warda of Erbil said. “Throughout all these long centuries, we have experienced many hardships and persecutions, offering caravans of martyrs. Yet 2014 brought the worst acts of genocide against us in our history.”
Warda added that “Christianity as a religion and as a culture from Mesopotamia [ancient Iraq]” now faced “extinction” due to the ongoing threat posed by ISIS…….
……“Donors in the private sector have offered complete funding for the airfare and the resettlement in the United States of these Iraqi Christians that are sleeping in public buildings, on school floors, or worse,” McDonnell wrote. “But the State Department—while admitting 4,425 Somalis to the United States in just the first six months of 2015, and possibly even accepting members of ISIS through the Syrian and Iraqi refugee program, all paid for by tax dollars, told Dobbs that they ‘would not support a special category to bring Assyrian Christians into the United States.’”
McDonnell contended that the United States government made it clear religious affiliation does not mean support for Christians in the region in the form of asylum.
“The State Department, the wider administration, some in Congress and much of the media and other liberal elites insist that Christians cannot be given preferential treatment,” McDonnell wrote.
No no, of course not. The ONLY impermissible religion to our self-anointed, increasingly satanic “elites” is the very Christianity the vast majority of them have rejected. Quite an interesting psychological paradigm playing out, I’d say. Persecution generated by self-loathing and lingering doubts over rejecting the God who made them.
But to take that hatred to the extent that it is formal policy not only to block the very Christians being slaughtered and veritably wiped out of their ancestral home – as a direct result of US actions! – but to freely admit muslim radicals to this country in their thousands, who then turn around and slaughter Americans, is so asinine as to be diabolical. This is beyond leftist shibboleths, and entering into the territory of self-hatred so strong it seeks its own destruction. It is deliberate cultural suicide. And it is being orchestrated by those people who constantly look down their noses at us (if not far worse) as our betters.
Lord have mercy on us. The extreme disorder built into this country at its founding (not being founded visibly with God as its Head) is manifesting itself, inevitably, in these final days as the antithesis of rightly ordered Christian government it always was. So the Christian becomes the scapegoat for every evil and the target of every persecution.
Again, Lord have mercy on us. We are sheep without a shepherd in a land of hatred and immorality.
Pray for the Iraqi and Syrian Christians! Fifteen years ago there were millions of Christians in those lands, today, those numbers have been reduced by 2/3 or more. A deliberate program of genocide is being carried out to sweep away the last vestiges of Christianity from the reason in which it was founded. This is a direct attack on our very identity as Christians.
