Obama State Department Responsible for Rise in Global Christian Persecution, Tony Perkins Says
The continued rise in Christian persecution across the globe in the past few years can be connected to Obama State Department's "misplaced priorities," leading social conservative activist Tony Perkins has asserted.
"Open Doors USA released their 2017 watch list and for the third year in a row there has been this growth in persecution of Christians abroad," he said. "You cannot look at this spread of anti-Christian persecution toward Christians absent of the policies of this administration."
"To a large degree, not exclusively, the problem is as acute as it is because of the way this State Department has been operating," Perkins continued. "That is why it is so important that the incoming administration and the incoming secretary of state be willing to take on an agenda that is layered within the department and not going to go away simply with new appointees."...
John L of Oz, you should like this one, which lays quite a bit of blame on the Obama Administration, [URL= https://www.mrc.org/special-reports/shameful-silence-abc-cbs-and-nbc-have-ignored-christian-genocide]]]http://tinyurl.com/zt6twkh ( Shameful Silence: ABC, CBS and NBC Have Ignored Christian Genocide)[/URL] and especially the American Networks, you can tell me if ABC Australia was just as bad. Caroline Glick being a good conservative, didn't want to mention Bush by name in this particular article, but you can see the problems that the Christians had, started with him It was bad that he didn't correct the problem, and just as bad that the Obama administration didn't correct what was left in their laps.

Dave from Oz writes: I think God may be in control, don't give Obama credit for nothing
God is in control. He is sovereign. But let us remember that acts involving sin don't involve God. Meaning He doesn't promote it, but allows things to happen. I will never fully understand this attribute.
First foremost, I am what, I am, but by the mere saving mercies, Christ had on me, by first seeking me out first, what a savior & friend He is amen.
For 20 years, Obama had no problems attending, Jermiah Wrightâs church. Where he spewed out his black liberation theology & anti-Americanism were preached with abandon. It shouldnât shock you, as Jermiah Wrightâs church was more race & Marxist-oriented than Christ centered.
For the Christ of Jermaiah Wright theology results in Gals 1:6-9 amen.
Here is a fine example of President Obama willingness to sure-press the truth, of Islam & its on going 1,400 years of being in the slave trade. As Missionary, Dr. Peter Hammonds, who is a fellow South African himself, who has a good command of knowing & sharing Gods, holy word with others. As he is a history buff, & a decaited Missionary,who has been imprisoned by Marxist governments, before, because of sharing the truth, that their is no King but Christ alone.
Dr. Hammonds does a good job in sharing the truth, while exposing the error of the twisted lies of President Obama, take on Islam & it's love of slavery. A perfect example of President Obama, willingness to twist truth, like he did, when he went to Africa, a couple of years ago.
Well, he and his administration deserve much more credit than this. They are also responsible for the rise of racism within the US, financial ruin, gross moral decline, and many, many suicides because of the transgender confusion he began with the advent of sodomite marraige, etc
Perkins told CP that the State Department's promotion of the Left's sexual agenda has become systemically ingrained during the eight years of the Obama presidency and it will take more than just a new secretary of state to change.
Considering that President-elect Donald Trump's nominee for secretary of state, former ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, was on the executive board of the Boy Scouts of America when it moved to allow openly gay scout leaders, Perkins is not confident that Tillerson will be the "change agent" needed to transform the culture in the State Department.
"Contrary to what some have claimed, that the State Department doesn't deal with social issues, that is a large portion of what this State Department has done under Barack Obama and it is not going to just go away. It has to be changed," Perkins said. "[Tillerson] has not addressed that as to why he didn't stand up and defend the Boy Scouts. I am just concerned that whoever comes into the State Department has to have the track record and the courage to be a change agent to return the State Department to the statutorily stated goals of the State Department.
"His track record raises some concerns. I just know that we have encountered a lot of these issues at the State Department in our work..."
Baby Bush really started the persecution going with his poor handling of the Iraq war
A. Doran wrote: In March 2003, on the eve of war in Iraq, Pope John Paul II dispatched Cardinal Pio Laghi, a senior Vatican diplomat, to Washington to make a final plea to Bush not to invade. Laghi, chosen for his close ties to the Bush family, outlined âclearly and forcefullyâ the Vaticanâs fears of what would follow an invasion: protracted war, significant casualties, violence between ethnic and religious groups, regional destabilization, âand a new gulf between Christianity and Islam.â The warning was not heeded.
Two weeks after the Bush-Laghi meeting, on March 19, 2003, Operation Iraqi Freedom commenced. Shortly after combat operations concluded on May 1, the real conflict began. Amid the chaos and sectarian violence that followed, Iraqâs Christians suffered severe persecution. Neither the military nor the State Department took action to protect them. In October 2003, human rights expert Nina Shea noted that religious freedom and a pluralistic Iraq were not high priorities for the administration, concluding that its âdiffidence on religious freedom suggests Washingtonâs relative indifference to this basic human right.â
