For years now, Christians across the Middle East have been brutalized, tortured, crucified and slaughtered by Muslims----simply because they follow Jesus Christ. They are infidels, after all, and therefore must be given a choice: convert to Islam, submit to Islamic rule, or die. Pick one.
Over the weekend, ISIS beheaded twenty-one Christians in Libya, proclaiming, "A MESSAGE SIGNED WITH BLOOD TO THE NATION OF THE CROSS." They were murdered in cold blood for their Christianity. No other reason. And yet the president and his team referred to them simply as "Egyptian citizens." The word "Christian" was nowhere to be found.
Since the president won't tell the truth about our Islamic enemy, Rev. Franklin Graham stepped up and spoke that truth. Please see his powerful statement, below. Pope Francis made a similar statement on behalf of Christians.
You would think a president who says he's a Christian would be more outraged over the unspeakable atrocities being committed against his fellow believers. Instead: crickets.
Rev. Graham is right: the storm is coming. Actually, he's wrong. The storm is already here.
As we celebrate and honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., please take a moment to listen to his famous "I have a dream" speech. It is one of the greatest speeches in American history, and one of the greatest speeches on behalf of freedom, period.
