Trump’s Administration Wants to Deport Iraqi Christians…

And there’s just one word for it: EVIL.

Iraqis are being swept up in immigration raids across the US and targeted for deportation by the Trump administration, in a crackdown attorneys and advocates described as a “death sentence” for members of Iraq’s Christian minority.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (Ice) arrested more than 200 Iraqi nationals over the weekend who have been the subject of deportation orders following criminal convictions or pending criminal charges.

One hundred and fourteen people were detained in Detroit alone, most of whom are members of Iraq’s Chaldean minority – which, like other Christian groups, has been targeted for persecution by Islamic State and other jihadist groups.

Najah Konja, 55, who was arrested in Detroit on Sunday morning, immigrated to the US with his family in 1977. No other relatives remain in Iraq, according to his brother, Shoki “Steve” Konja.

“What is he going to do there?” Steve Konja, a US citizen, told the Guardian. “Basically, they are sentencing him to death.”

Mr Trump, you are no Christian.  And any ‘Christian’ who stands with you in this is not a Christian either.

Other Faces of the Protestant Reformation

November 23, 2017 at Mackenzie Presbyterian University in Brazil: Symposium Other Faces of the Reformation.  On the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, Martin Luther’s work will always be prominent.  However, it is important to consider other protagonists whose role allowed the Protestant Reformation to spread so rapidly across a large number of countries. Some of these men, known as Pre-Reformers, left an important legacy that would prepare the way for the actions of Martin Luther.

I guess if the officer had texted Philando Castilo to kill himself instead of shooting him, we might have had a chance at a guilty verdict. – Jay Kuo
