Islamists from ISIS burnt out the inside and remove the cross from the Armenian Catholic Church of the Martyrs in Raqqa, replacing the crosses with ISIS flags.
In the last month, ISIS have destroyed most of the Ancient Churches in their territory, focing the Christians of their ancient homelands to leave the area with the choice of “Convert, Leave or Die,”
As of 16:55 GMT today (20/7/14) the last Christian family has left Mosul, after over 100 families who refused to leave were forcibly removed from their homes, many dying in the process.
Over 1400 years ago the Christians in this area feared their deaths with the rise of the “Heresy of the Ishmaelites” and demands of the Dhimmi system, now this has returned in an ever more violent fashion.
Lord Have Mercy
But it’s okay when it happens to Christians, that’s how it works right?
hey, remember how christians did this to half of the world? except it was just convert or die
ahh, irony. what a bitch. or is it karma? or is it both?
Irony??? Karma??? I am seething with rage right now. You’re literally talking about a group of people that have never oppressed anyone or forced anyone to convert and that have been oppressed for centuries. According to your sick twisted logic Christians in Iraq should pay for things THEY NEVER DID.
Wow, what a stupid comment.
The message played over loudspeakers gave the Christians of Iraq’s second-largest city until midday Saturday to make a choice: convert to Islam, pay a tax or face death.
Pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters
Our Lady Help of Christians, pray for those persecuted!
