A letter to the President of the United States of America, one Christian and and American citizen to another
You have often espoused your Christian faith. You have many times said that it informs your decisions, and justifies your views. You have asked us to love our neighbors, and help one another. Yet, in the face of a new Christian holocaust in the Middle East, you seem undisturbed. You have yet to speak a single word on the topic. You have yet to condemn the massacre of the world's oldest Christian communities. You have yet to express sorrow for the extermination of the last Aramaic community in the world. You have yet to cry out for the Christian CHILDREN being sold off as sex slaves or worse, CRUCIFIED for their faith.
You often claim to be Christian. But I struggle to understand why any Christian would be so reluctant to utter any word whatsoever of the massacre of their brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, daughters and sons in the Middle East. I have come to one, perhaps bitter conclusion; your Christian faith is a lie. No Christian could hear of these atrocities and not be compelled to cry form the rooftops every day of the horrible crimes being committed in the name of any god. No Christian would so carefully avoid any reference to the atrocities committed against his fellow believers. No Christian would not be driven to tears by these crimes. No Christians would or COULD remain so resoundingly silent.
Not only do you shame our faith, by you corrupt the very soul of our nation by remaining silent. We stand as a beacon of freedom, a testament to the right of any man to speak as he will, believe as he will, and, most importantly, his right to LIVE. Our nation will spend decades proving once again to the world that we are that nation. Hopefully, it will not by then be too late. But, I fear that by the time you retire from the Oval Office that there simply won't be any more Christians left in the Middle East.
You often speak of the virtues of Islam. You praise the Iraqi government as "inclusive." Yet, even now, that "inclusive" government is seizing Christian houses, denying them the smallest liberties. You remain silent for fear of "offending Muslims." Enough is enough, Mr. President; the time to speak out is now. We cannot fail to condemn the greatest crime against mankind since the great Holocaust for fear of "offending" ANYONE. But words will not be enough; dire action MUST be taken now, while there is still time left to act.
Never again is NOW.
