Leaders Push Senate to Pass Bill to Protect Mid-East Christians

Statesmen and policy heavyweights called upon the Senate to vote on House-passed bill H.R. 390 to protect persecuted Christians in Iraq and Syria, at a reception honoring former Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA).

The Iraq and Syria Genocide Emergency Relief and Accountability Act of 2017 directs the State Department to provide assistance to entities that criminally prosecute those suspected of committing genocide, wars against humanity, or war crimes in Iraq over the past six years, or in Syria during its civil war. The bill’s primary focus is to stop the genocide of Christians in those countries.

Tom Farr, president of the Religious Freedom Institute, which hosted Wednesday’s reception, called Wolf “the father of international religious liberty policy” for the United States.

Wolf was the author and primary sponsor of the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998. That law created a U.S. Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom, established the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, and assigned a Special Adviser on International Religious Freedom in the White House’s National Security Council.

Without this new law, “We are ready to see the end of Christianity in the cradle of Christendom,” Wolf warned the audience at the reception.

This country will come undone if this bill passes

They might pass a protection law for Jews, but never for Christians.

Why do you believe that this will harm the country?

We believers in Jesus Christ know this is going to happen. It is prophecy. We believers in our Savior Jesus Christ are here to help others come to Jesus. While we are doing this we will be persecuted tortured and beheaded. And to a lesser extent belittled by the less violent, our coworkers family and friends.
