    A hearty and heartfelt “Thank You!” to Congressman Chris Smith for his attempt to shed light on the persecution and barbaric genocide against Christians and others practiced by these savages who are trying to create an Islamic Caliphate.

    They are hell bent on proving to God that Satan was right in challenging the creation of man; that man was not worthy of worshipping God.

    Cutting ones head off, or burning them alive, because they are of a different sect or religion, is an obscene affront to God.

    May God give all nations, of all religious beliefs, the wisdom to properly protect the right of all to worship in peace and to pray for God to provide justice to those who have committed such obscene atrocities.

    We all require an internal jihad, within oneself, to fight temptations and wrongdoing. An external jihad, the slaughter of innocents, only causes one to remember history, especially during the season of Christmas, King Herod’s slaughter of the innocents (male children under two years of age in Bethlehem), while not many, it was a precursor of things to come when rulers become despots and tyrants.

    I pray that God will hear our prayers and protect all who truly serve Him wth love and compassion for the downtrodden.

    Since our current President has failed competely in this area, I pray that our new President, Donald Trump, will be guided and provided wisdom to institute safe havens in that region to protect all residents, Christian, Hebrew and Muslim, which would both be less costly and reduce the immigration flow into Europe and the United States.

    May God Bless and Protect these United States of America and those throughout the world who worship Him in peace and love.

    anyone who thinks Christians aren’t being persecuted all around the world is naive and dumb. I again am proud of and grateful to our congressman for his steadfast support for human life, in all aspects: it does not often get mentioned, but we are fortunate for the excellent work Chris has done and continues to do,for all people!
