While the Obama Administration is brining in thousands of Islamic refugees, the American government has brought in only thirty four Christians! Thats it. Read the story here:
Conservatives are outraged over the small number of Christian Syrian refugees who have been allowed to enter the United States — even as some on the right float a ban on their Muslim counterparts.
The U.S. has allowed just 34 Christians to enter as refugees from Syria since the civil war broke out there more than four years ago, according to the State Department’s most recent available data.
That accounts for just 2 percent of the roughly 2,100 Syrian refugees the U.S. has accepted — disproportionately smaller than the 10 percent of Syrians who are Christian.
While suggestions that the U.S. employs a blanket ban on Christian refugees from Syria have been proved false, leading Republicans are seizing on the issue, arguing that the Obama administration should do more to help Syria’s Christians escape the threat of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
The issue is almost certain to come up during Tuesday evening’s GOP presidential debate, which is the first since concerns about refugees spiked following indications that at least one terrorist involved in last month’s killing of 130 people in Paris had entered Europe disguised as a Syrian refugee.
“If you’re from Syria and you’re a Christian, you cannot come into this country, and they’re the ones that are being decimated,” GOP front-runner Donald Trump said at a speech in Las Vegas this summer.
Why is the US brining so few Christians? Because America, governmentally speaking, is not a Christian nation, but a nation of the enlightenment. It is a nation, essentially, that has gotten rid of its Christian identity. Now, there is a nation where many people are striving to restore its Christian identity, and that is Russia. I had the opportunity of interviewing one of these young zealous Christians, named Mila Odegova, to discuss the role that Russia will play in fighting Islam, and in being a major figure in advancing Christianity and combating the Islamic persecution of Christians. Mila is also very much involved in fighting the homosexual agenda in Russia, and is right now even being persecuted by the Russian government for righteously attacking a blasphemous “art” exhibit that insulted Jesus Christ. Here is the interview:
