U.S. State Dept. Stops Christians from Testifying

(Worthy News) - The U.S. State Department has repeatedly hindered witnesses from testifying about the persecution of Christians by Muslims.

According to Jihad Watch, Sister Diana Momenka was scheduled to visit the U.S. last year on behalf of Iraq's persecuted Christians, but was denied a visa because she became an "internally displaced person" after the Islamic State forced her and others to flee St. Ephrem's Seminary in Bakhdida.

Momenka was part of a delegation of religious leaders from Iraq that was to meet with the Senate and House foreign relations committees. Every religious leader of the delegation was granted a visa save the sister, who just happened to be its only Christian representative.

After her visa refusal went public, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that the Obama administration never finds a good reason to help Christians, though it always finds an excuse to apologize for terrorists.

As a result, the State Department later relented and granted Momenka her visa, but when the United States Institute for Peace gathered all the governors of Nigeria's mostly Muslim northern states for a conference in Washington, D.C., the State Department blocked the visa of Jonah David Jang, the region's only Christian governor.

According to a Nigerian human rights lawyer, Jang's denial were the direct result of the U.S. government's bias against Christians.

"The U.S. insists that Muslims are the primary victims of Boko Haram," said Emmanuel Ogebe. "It also claims that Christians discriminate against Muslims in Plateau, which is one of the few Christian majority states in the north ... The question remains — why is the U.S. downplaying or denying the attacks against Christians?"

Why indeed?

      • It should be understood the Christian Crusade long ago was a defensive measure brought about because of Muslim atrocities at that time. War always brings out the worst but Christians were not the blood thirsty predators Godless Hollywood would have you believe but it was a defensive measure plain and simple. You will not hear the truth in public institutions today; even Christians lack knowledge of the purpose for the crusades: it was to bring the news of Christ love to the Muslim Barbarian who went about killing and plundering villages all over to bring the booty back to Mohammed. Unfortunately in most cases the barbarians chose to kill missionaries bringing the good news. Story's you hear today always paint the Christians as the bad guys, the Jews are the bad guys but the Muslims always seem to be portrayed as the victim. It is truly the other way around. The proof is contrasted between the holy scriptures of God's expression of love for all and text by the self proclaimed profit Mohamed in his Koran, even the encyclopedia Britannica sheds light on the truth, that is publications before today’s revisionist text.

  1. We should be organizing to get behind candidates that will be strong and stand up for our values - if we do not - .....please do not assume we will not have 4 more years of the same - it will take action on our part!

  2. The Mystery of Lawlessness is always at work.The middle east is being dismantled in order to form a new order.A revived Rome-based Empire.Europe will collapse soon as refugees break the thin ice.Anew world economy is being implemented by the shadow banks.

  3. Christian persecution is here...Kim Davis, the clerk, has been jailed in refusing to bow down to the judge or anyone else for that matter but to the God Almighty, King of kings and Lord of lords, to Him alone...may the LORD grant me the same courage and boldness to stand for HIS Truth even when under pressure. GLORY to GOD in the highest!

  4. I believe its because of the fact that Obama is not a true Christian. And the administration of Obama also bias against Christianity. I'm deeply concerned what's going on now in the U.S. The nation that has been set up basis on the Christian faith has now became the the nation where pastors cannot confront same sex marriage.
