The following comes from a November 17 Christian Newswire news release:
Christians and other religious minorities in Syria have been targeted for death, sexual slavery, displacement, cultural eradication and forced conversion by ISIS.
Many of these persecuted Christians hope to escape to the United States. They have been largely excluded, with the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration admitting to officials at The Barnabas Fund, a Christian relief agency, “There is no way that Christians will be supported because of their religious affiliation.”
According to data from the State Department’s Refugee Processing Center for Fiscal Year 2015, resettled Syrian refugees were 97 percent Muslim. The Hudson Institute’s Nina Shea, in a November 2 article in National Review, showed that in the past five years 53 out of 2003 Syrian refugees accepted by the United States have been Christians (about 2.5 percent of the total). But about 10 percent of Syrians are Christians.
Obama only wants Muslim refugees here. He doesn’t give a fig about Christians. The man is so evil. GQ Man of the Year? The world truly loves its own.
Clinton, your comment is very disingenuous. Our President doesn’t hate Christians. Don’t forget that thousands have been killed in Syria because of being Christian. Religious leaders are asking the world for help on this issue. The question is how many Christians applied for refugee status and what percent were accepted compared to other religious groups. We need to know the percent of Christians in Syria vs. Muslims and how many are leaving. All we have to do is watch TV news and see the millions trying to escape. Then, it takes about 18-24 months to go through the vetting process before any can be allowed legal entry. Don’t listen to the fear mongers!
The Christians were exterminated to a great degree in Syria!
Obama was not interested in doing anything to stop their extermination when it was happening; just looked the other way while children were being tortured and murdered in front of their parents; mothers raped, tortured and killed in front of husbands. He did nothing to protect them and their homeland, so they wouldn’t have to flee. NOW he wants the refugees to come here and if anyone wants to make sure terrorists are not among them they are bigots. His lack of action at the time of the attacks against them is the greatest bigotry of all. History will record that he sat on his hands will this happened.
So what percentage of the APPLICANTS were Christians?, that is the relevant question.
“They have been largely excluded, with the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration admitting to officials at The Barnabas Fund, a Christian relief agency, “There is no way that Christians will be supported because of their religious affiliation.” YFC, go ask the State Department all the “relevant questions” you want.
If Obama was discovered in a dark alley next a dead body, with him holding a bloody knife YFC would find a way to cover for him
Where are they? Obama won’t let them in because they are Christian. He however, wants as many Moslems to come here as possible. Ave Maria Purrissima !
source that obama wont let christians in ave maria?
Many Christian Syrians were denied entrance to the United States when they landed in New Orleans. It is unfortunate that many readers of this site are also low informed people as well. Ave Maria Purrissima !
More proof that Obama is an anti-Christian bigot. Otherwise, he would have put a stop to this anti-Christian policy. Even worse, there are Catholics who voted for Obama.
According to the Catholic News Agency,the US bishops had a conference with Obama on Friday (aptly) Nov. 13th: I am sure they brought up the issue of Christians, who are true refugees, being left to die in Syria, Iraq and the Middle East.
Arent you sure too?
Before someone being obtuse misses the point: the bishops DID bring up the issue—but the point is: how will anyone be able to tell?
You and I know, that if they insisted on it, the bishops, will all their clout, could have effected a change in policy—for all the bending-over they have done for this administration in the past 7 years.
But that is the price of being a courtesan.
Please provide a link for your assertion that Christians are not supported (for refugee status) because of their religious affiliation. A link please.
On the contrary, at least one report that noted the underrepresentation of Syrian Christians among refugees to the US noted that the US gets its applicants mostly from the UN pool, and that Christians are underrepresented in that pool. So there you have it. The US is letting in Christians at the same rate from the applicant pool, just as I suspected. Here is that link: https://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obama-calls-helping-christian-refugees-shameful-while-state-claims-s-exactly-what-it-s-doing_1066126.html
They should stay in Syria and fight for their country.
I’d rather see the hundred thousand or so of muslims sent home to fight their own dirty jihadist war amongst themselves. Keep the Christian middle-easterners out of it. They are the only refugees we can trust and feel safe and secure with inside our own North American borders! Pray the rosary that people will see the train wreck that is coming!
All you good Christian middle-eastern refugees are welcome here just like lady liberty calls.
