Over the last decade, we’ve watched in horror as ISIS swept across the Middle East, brutally persecuting Christians along their path for dominance in the region.
As ISIS has been slowly subdued, a new mass threat is rising against Christians on a different continent, and it is one that global leaders have so far failed to respond to.
In Nigeria, Fulani herdsmen have been waging an unthinkably evil and violent campaign against Christian farmers, leaving thousands dead as the government turns a blind eye.
Charisma News reports:
A new wave of attacks by Fulani herdsmen against Christians is leading one international human rights advocate to call on the U.S. Congress to appoint a special envoy to investigate.
“Nigeria is now the deadliest place in the world to be a Christian,” explained attorney Emmanuel Ogebe. “What we have is a genocide. They are trying to displace the Christians, they are trying to possess their land and they are trying to impose their religion on the so-called infidels and pagans who they consider Christians to be.”
Two weeks ago, 238 people were killed in a village massacre in north-central Nigeria. Six of Ogebe’s relatives were among the victims.
“From what we have been able to piece together, the husband and his pregnant wife, he tried to take her out of the house to safety and come back for the kids,” recalled Ogebe. “But they ran into the herdsmen along the way and they shot him and his pregnant wife and they went into their home and they killed their 4-year-old son and their 6-year-old daughter who were asleep in their beds.”
He said the Muslim attackers also killed two relatives who were visiting the family during summer break.
Ogebe said he was told that authorities would not allow the corpses of his relatives to be taken away for separate burial. Instead, they were buried in a mass grave with the other victims.
Dr. Michael Brown, author and radio host, says that the Western media is doing very little to bring attention to this crisis.
“While these Nigerian Christians weep, the West remains in the dark,” he says, explaining that the Nigerian government is characterizing the violence as a simple rural rivalry.
He shares this from a Nigerian blog post:
“Christians here are incensed that the Nigerian president is telling the world that the explanation for this brutality is conflict between Fulani herdsman and farmers. As a Nigerian headline put it, ‘Bukhari [the president] says 300 Fulani cows were stolen.’ In other words, the Fulani herdsmen retaliated because their cows were stolen.”
Meanwhile, Brown says, babies are being hacked up, women raped, young and old burned alive.
Please keep the Nigerian Christians in your prayers and share this or Dr. Brown’s articles to bring attention to this horrific crisis.
LA County Now Lifting Ban On Indoor Worship Services ‘To Align With Recent SCOTUS Rulings’
Los Angeles County has decided to finally follow the Constitution and honor the First Amendment right of freedom of religion — a right handed down by God Himself — and lift a ban on indoor church worship services over the weekend after recent Supreme Court rulings in favor of houses of worship. Gee, how nice of them to allow folks to do what God commands them to do and hold services inside a building like normal people. This should never have been something that needed a Supreme Court ruling. The Constitution is pretty clear that the right to freely expression religion is protected. via Daily Wire: “The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified today to align with recent Supreme Court rulings for places of worship,” the county said in a press release Saturday. “Places of worship are permitted to offer faith-based services both indoors and outdoors with mandatory physical distancing and face coverings over both the nose and mouth that must be worn at all times while on site. Places of worship must also assure that attendance does not exceed the number of people who can be accommodated while maintaining a physical distance of six feet between separate households.” “Public Health strongly recommends that places of worship continue to hold services outdoors, with physical distancing and the use of face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community,” the release continued. “Because Los Angeles County is experiencing an unprecedented surge of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, every effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community is critical. This is an absolute win for religious liberty, one of the most important and fundamental rights our republic was established upon. In fact, it was our forefathers seeking after religious…
Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC
A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…
