Why Is Obama So Silent About The Vicious Persecution Of Christians All Over The Globe?

Barack Obama - Public DomainAs you read this article, Christians are being openly persecuted in more than 60 nations.  Churches are being burned, believers are being hunted down and imprisoned, and violent mobs are beating and killing those that dare to say that Jesus is Lord.  And thanks to ISIS, the persecution of Christians has risen to frightening new levels in 2015.  In recent months, our news sources have been filled with headlines about Christians that are being beheaded, crucified and buried alive by ISIS.  According to U.S. Representative Frank Wolf, what is happening to Christians in the Middle East actually meets the United Nations definition of “genocide”.  So what is Barack Obama doing about all of this?  Sadly, he is essentially doing next to nothing.  He has been nearly silent as the acts of mass violence just keep piling up.  This silence has outraged many on both the left and the right, and yet Obama just continues to keep quiet.  What are we supposed to make of that?


Just consider an example from earlier this week.  A group of angry Muslims threw twelve innocent Christian migrants into the Mediterranean Sea resulting in their deaths, but Obama apparently does not believe that it is important enough to talk about. The following is from an editorial that Kirsten Powers penned for USA Today

If a Christian mob on a ship bound for Italy threw 12 Muslims to their death for praying to Allah, does anyone think the president would have been so disinterested? When three North Carolina Muslims were gunned down by a virulent atheist, Obama rightly spoke out against the horrifying killings. But he just can’t seem to find any passion for the mass persecution of Middle Eastern Christians or the eradication of Christianity from its birthplace.

When violence is perpetrated against a group of people that Obama is inclined to protect, he is all over it.  But when it comes to the most persecuted faith on the planet, the best that Obama can do is mumble a few half-hearted words once in a while

The president’s mumblings about the atrocities visited upon Christians (usually extracted after public outcry over his silence) are few and far between. And it will be hard to forget his lecturing of Christians at the National Prayer Breakfast about the centuries-old Crusades while Middle Eastern Christians were at that moment being harassed, driven from their homes, tortured and murdered for their faith.

And when it comes to the global persecution of Christians, the leadership of the White House matters.

As Erik Rush recently observed, the tone of this White House regarding minority Christians populations around the globe has been far different than we have seen from previous administrations…

While the diplomatic dynamics behind the following may be news to many, it is a fact that over many presidential administrations, nations with minority Christian populations (particularly in the Middle East) were always made aware that our foreign policy concerning them would be to some extent predicated on the treatment of Christians thereof.

All that changed when Barack Hussein Obama ascended to the presidency, and the testimony of Christians living in these nations bears this out. Even excluding such extreme examples as the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power in Egypt (after which Christians were being crucified in the streets), the general deportment of Islamic governments in the region with regard to Christians changed from one of grudging tolerance to abject persecution. As we can readily observe now in the region, as well as in Islamic African nations, the violent persecution of Christians has practically become a new national pastime.

In other words, Obama’s silence on Christian persecution has been a signal that it is open season on Christians, and those that hate Christians around the world have responded appropriately.

Fortunately, we still have a few national leaders that are willing to stand up for Christians around the world.  One of them, U.S. Representative Frank Wolf, says that what ISIS is doing to Christians in the Middle East meets the official United Nations definition of genocide

“It is genocide. It meets the test of genocide,” Wolf said, citing accepted United Nations parameters for the practice.

In Wolf’s estimation, and that of many Americans of conscience, the Obama administration’s failure to weigh in on this atrocity in any manner whatsoever is an abject disgrace.

And let’s remember – this is not just happening in the Middle East, and it is not just Muslims that are doing this.

The persecution of Christians has become a truly global phenomenon, and sometimes the most brutal incidents are in places that we would not even think of.

For example, there was a brutal attack on Christians in India by Hindu extremists on April 8th

Christians sustained broken bones and wounds when Hindu extremists on April 8 attacked an open-air gospel event in Telangana state, India, sources said.

Police initially refused to help church members after the mob of about 100 Hindu extremists seriously injured four Christians in the attack in Pebbair, Mahabubnagar District, they said. Area church leaders submitted a complaint citing inaction by police.

So what were those Christians doing wrong?

Absolutely nothing.

They were just holding a meeting.

And these Hindu extremists didn’t just attack men.  According to one news report, they were even beating women and children…

Hindu extremists from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Bajrang Dal charged into the evangelistic meeting on the final day of the three-day event at about 9:30 p.m. Shouting “Jai Shri Ram [Praise Lord Ram],” the Hindu extremists led by local leaders of the RSS and Bajrang Dal attacked the Kristhu Suvartha Ujiva congregation, beating pastors, women, children and the aged while insulting their faith.

Sadly, this is nothing new for this part of India.  Last year, there were 15 violent attacks against Christians in that exact area.

But Obama is going to be extremely reluctant to help any Bible-believing Christians, because he considers them to be his political enemies.  And yes, most Bible-believing Christians in America voted against Barack Obama.  But that is no excuse for how he has been acting.

And it is not just a matter of doing nothing.  During the Obama administration, Bible-believing Christians are being purged out of the military and they are even being labeled as “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents.  Obama’s animosity for Bible-believing Christians in America is glaringly apparent, and this is likely the root cause for his appalling lack of concern for persecuted Christians around the planet.

What I want to share with you next is the kind of speech that we would be hearing if we had a good man in the White House.  This speech was recently delivered by author Jonathan Cahn at the United Nations, and it is extremely moving

Why can’t Obama give a speech like that?

We like to point to atrocities throughout history and talk about how we would have done things differently if we had been there.

But we are watching a major atrocity unfold right in front of our eyes here in 2015, and our government is just standing by and letting it happen.

So exactly what does that say about the state of our nation and the state of our national leadership?

    It should be obvious to everyone now that the current President of the U.S. is a Muslim. The Lord is angry with the president’s inaction regarding all of the persecution that is taking place against Christians. It has been said by many commentators that the president is arrogant.

    The Prophet Jeremiah gives us a prophecy of the character of Barack Hussein in Jeremiah chapter 50.

    Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, saith the Lord GOD of hosts: for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee.(Jeremiah 50:31)

    And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him.(Jeremiah 50:32)

  • DesertPaine

    This man’s radical Muslim ties are the topic de jure. Its easy to see: this is the issue that few dare consider outside of low whisper. In another time and place his consistent, subversive action related to this matter would have been confronted differently.

      Like every US President, Obama is afraid of the power of the anti-Christians:

        What do the stories below have to do with your comment above? Are you saying that the US is afraid of anti-Christian Jews?

        • Mark

          Yes, so afraid that many, including Presidents, won’t admit, much less criticize, such virulent anti-Christian beliefs and terrorism.

  • K

    Have we not given money to rebels, that ended up with ISIS. Did we not stand by as ISIS raided 3 major Iraqi weapons depots. Did we not further air drop weapons to ISIS 3 different times? Sounds to me like he has taken plenty of action. Aiding and abetting those murders.

    • Gay Veteran

      and don’t forget Libya. The reason refugees are drowning is because of the chaos we created in countries like Libya

  • krinks

    Everyone who voted for Obama, allowing a member of the Muslim Brotherhood to call himself a Christian is to blame for this. Blacks and black churches who should have been first in line to expose this sick lie rolled over and played dead.

  • Johanne

    I feel like Jonah warning Nineveh to repent, but it is more like Babylon the great to come out of her my people lest you share in her plagues.

    America is no longer great.


  • Guest

    I hope people take the time to remember what God said September 12, 2001. This was the day after 9/11 and when you read the Isaiah 9 prophesy in its entirety you will discover that America will be harshly judged. Isaiah 9 prophesy says that her enemies from the east and from the west will destroy her. It talks about how both our political leaders and religious leaders will mislead the people. Finally, it says the land will scorched and the people will be fuel for the fire.

    • Skip Tindle

      Yup we are all evil I guess, what a god you have that will kill and torturer everyone for his thrills. I think the whole problem is people believing in an invisible friend who tells them to do things :P

      • Georgia Girl

        You have such a loving spirit…not. Think of it this way….if you owned a house and burglars broke in to steal and kill, what would you do? The Earth is God’s house, and the unbelievers are the burglars…

            Oh yes you are so right. Those Ten Commandments are so full of evil comments and rules….SMH

      • Laureen Acton

        Sorry that is not our God doing any of this, it is your god, satan !!

        • Joan C.

          Exactly right!! Satan is the god of this world! Revelation 12:9

          So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole WORLD; he was cast to the EARTH, and his angels were cast out with him.

          Revelation 12:l2 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”

        • PPTA

          Laureen Action, you got it right. The God I worship does not condone any of the stuff that the Muslims do. Their God is Satan.

      • Joan C.

        So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole WORLD; he was cast to the EARTH, and his angels were cast out with him.

        If you don’t believe there’s a god over you, well satan just loves that, and he’s just waiting for your soul, so just keep laughing, satan is laughing with you.

    • Joan C.

      Exactly right! I’ve known about Isaiah 9 prophecy for awhile, it’s on youtube too…

    Revelation 13 American Standard Version (ASV)

    13 and he stood upon the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns, and seven heads, and on his horns ten diadems, and upon his heads names of blasphemy.

    2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority.

    3 And I saw one of his heads as though it had been smitten unto death; and his death-stroke was healed: and the whole earth wondered after the beast;

    4 and they worshipped the dragon, because he gave his authority unto the beast; and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? And who is able to war with him?

    5 and there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and there was given to him authority to continue forty and two months.

    6 And he opened his mouth for blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, even them that dwell in the heaven.

    7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and there was given to him authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation.

    8 And all that dwell on the earth shall worship him, every one whose name hath not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb that hath been slain.

    9 If any man hath an ear, let him hear.

    10 If any man is for captivity, into captivity he goeth: if any man shall kill with the sword, with the sword must he be killed. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

    Off topic, but who and why did someone take that picture of Obama looking in the mirror?

  • DJohn1

    Obama is only nominally in charge of things.
    His masters are really in charge. They give the orders.
    Just exactly who are the people in charge of Obama.
    If money talks and Bulls**t walks, then we need to know who Obama is obligated to.
    Who has billions to play with? At one time the Rockefeller family might be considered. Then the Morgans. Or the top 400 wealthiest families in the country. Or a King in Saudi Arabia. Or a Jewish Israel.
    Or even a relatively recent newcomer to the BIllion dollar club from Microsoft.
    Who ever it is, they have obviously decided to destroy Christianity one way or another. Obama is the puppet.
    It is important to know which one is pulling the strings.

  • RevRoy

    I don’t think they are so much idiots as they are deceived. The younger generation, under 35’s, would fit into that category because of the dumbing down of the American education system, but then that goes right back to being deceived.
    I also believe Obama, the Caliph-in Chief, is probably the head of the Muslim Brotherhood or will be the new Caliph of the coming Global Caliphate. We are near the end of the Great Apostasy, the Great falling away of the end times, and the “blindness” we see is from God Himself. 2 Thess. Chapter 2.
    And not only is the Blessing gone, but Obama is calling down the Judgments of God upon that once mighty nation. If you really think about it, Obama has already conquered the U.S. without firing a shot.
    Not much time left. Jesus is “on the way” to fetch His Bride and take her to His Father’s house for the great Wedding in the sky.
    Maranatha, come Jeshuah Hamashiach !!!

      Obama sure is killing a lot of Muslims to be the Caliph-in-Chief

      • Joan C.

        That’s just what they want you to believe…

        • Gay Veteran

          and yet the fact remains.
          Obama doesn’t mind killing Muslims, whether they be Shia or Sunni

  • tovlogos

    We know the Holy Spirit restrains evil (2 Thessalonians 2:6,7); but in what form? In verses 3-9 it is plainly stated: “the man of lawlessness,” vs. 3; or the anti-Christ, vs. 9, who comes “in accord with the activity of Satan.

    What we see happening all around us is the inevitable outcome of a world filled with people who directly or indirectly reject God.
    Obama, who was ‘voted’ into office, is just one. Yes, by his political office he potentially has more power than the average citizen; but his power is being used to make certain the anti-Christ has a red carpet into the affairs of mankind. Nevertheless, if he were the only one, it wouldn’t work. We have the New Age West, Islam, political greed and corruption, etc.

    God’s attitude — “…the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.” 2 Thess. 2:9-10)

    “And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved/reprobate mind, to do those things which are not proper.” (Romans 1:28)

    God has a breaking point when He will let a person go to his chosen fate. If Obama were not there, it would be some other likeminded leader, ultimately the anti-Christ. So we can protest against one ruler; however, Christians are positionally better able to see the big picture.
    Let’s face it — the world hated Jesus first; and they subsequently hate us.

    • John Doeman

      gods and religions are created in the imaginations of man.

      • tovlogos

        Hi John — Yes, religions, and idolatry are man’s creation. No one could think up Jesus. Man comes up with superman, Zeus, Apollo…
        But gods, which are false gods, are real spirit beings. When a person worships a rock, or anything other than God, Elohim, there is a spirit being, ultimately Satan, who he is actually worshipping. The devil is a spirit being. In fact Daniel 10 is a dramatic illustration of how the unseen world directly affects the temporal world. That interaction between earth and the timeless sphere is in the Scriptures.

        • Joan C.

          satan is the god of this earth, for now….

          Revelation 12:9

          So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole WOLRD; he was cast to the EARTH, and his angels were cast out with him.

    • Joan C.

      Yes, very true, and as satan is the god of this world, it makes it all the easier for us to be prosecuted.

      Revelation 12:9

      So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole WORLD; he was cast to the EARTH, and his angels were cast out with him.

      • tovlogos

        John, I don’t want to let the devil off the hook. Too many people are blinded by hi tricks. (Ephesians 6:10-19)
        Do you how many times someone has asked me, “What is going on??”
        Psychology – the study of the soul, is not what modern psychology studies. It is more a study of behavior, the motivation of which is consistent with the activity of that man of lawlessness. (2 Thessalonians 2:2-17; 1 John 4:3)

  • John Doeman

    Christians are being persecuted about as much as my daughter is being persecuted because I won’t let her bully in school. So. freaking. sick. and. tired. of. the. whining.

    Christians are experiencing blowback because most Americans have become fed up with their blindly ambitious goal of a theorcracy. We aren’t going to allow it… and they will compare themselves to the Jews in Auschwitz. They have no perspective.

    • angela

  • Gay Veteran

    too bad your bible didn’t condemn slavery, you self-righteous pharisee

  • Undecider

    This is all because like many Americans, Obama has been taught that Christians are the scourge of the planet. Therefore, he feels no pity when a Christian is killed. What most don’t realize is that Christians have been played by Anti-Christians to do their evil deeds. Leaving Christians to get the blame.

    Obama is a Muslim in the Muslim Brotherhood who secretly hates all Christians, Being in the Muslim Brotherhood he thnks like a NATZI. Look up Hitler and Islam. Then read some of the Sharia Law.

  • amongoose

    My guess is that he sees nothing wrong with it, as a fellow muslim.

  • saviano

    Why is Pres. Obama silent about side wide genocide happening to Christians around world?
    HIs silence is acceptance…..
    Pres. Obama has embraced the Muslim faith in front of the world because he’s one of them.
    If anyone here is expecting leadership from Pres. Obama on this issue , think again .

  • Obama Stands with Islam,..Not America.. Obama was Born a Muslim.

    When you are born to a Muslim father, YOU HAVE NO CHOICE. In this case, Islam is not a choice, it is a brithmark. Being born to an Islamic father makes you a Muslim — period. Sharia Law …Obamas Father was a Muslim,..Therefore Obama was Born a Muslim.

    Obama is the Enemy to the United States..”America’s decline under Obama isn’t due to mistake, ignorance, or incompetence.”It’s by Design..
