In a rare appearance on Capitol Hill by a Vatican representative, Archbishop Francis Chullikatt testified Tuesday before a House subcommittee on the “flagrant and widespread persecution” of Christians in the Middle East.

“No Christian is exempt, whether or not he or she is Arab,” Chullikatt said.

Chullikatt was among seven speakers discussing the escalation of threats to Christians. Specifically, testimony focused on underreported assaults, the plight of impacted Christian communities and the need to protect religious freedoms and civil rights.

“Arab Christians, a small but significant community, find themselves the target of constant harassment for no reason other than their religious faith,” Chullikatt said.

In Syria alone, there have been reports of kidnappings, Christian communities intentionally displaced by militants, as well as shootings and beheadings of Christians who refused to convert to Islam, according to various news reports from the region.

    Its about time. When was the last time you heard a Christian leader step up to the plate and denounce these goatfcking, wife beating, pedophiles? When have you heard of any “moderate” muzzies come out and denounce these sadistic mother goatfckers? NEVER, thats when. These animals are the ENEMY! Its time we treat them as such.

    This Archbishop is appealing to the wrong government. Religious freedoms and civil rights have become very limited by this regime
