Genocide of Christians continues in Middle East, says new U.S. report

CATHOLIC NEWS SERVICE

The Trump administration renews its commitment to the protection of religious minority groups threatened by the Islamic State in the Middle East, according to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in the preface of the annual State Department report on international religious freedom, released Aug. 15.

“ISIS is clearly responsible for genocide against Yezidis, Christians and Shia Muslims in areas it controlled,” Tillerson said in a statement Aug. 15. “ISIS is also responsible for crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing directed at these same groups, and in some cases against Sunni Muslims, Kurds and other minorities.”

Hillary Clinton a pastor?

One News Now

A future in politics didn’t work out for Hillary Clinton last year but there might be a new title in her future: pastor.

According to The Atlantic, Clinton would like to replace the hoped-for title of “president” with “pastor” after her surprise loss to Donald Trump last November.

The sympathetic story, published Aug. 6, relies on her longtime Methodist pastor to relay the message that the famously cold and calculating former First Lady honestly longed to be an ordained minister all her adult life.

Although she’s not known to wear religion on her sleeve, she does keep it discretely tucked into a pocket of her pantsuit, ready to pull out her Methodist roots when the occasion calls for it.

“First of all,” she told the left-wing women of “The View” last year, “I’m a Christian and I take my faith very seriously.”

Yet for every step toward people of faith, there seems to be two steps back, like when she was talking to a pro-abortion crowd last year.

“Deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed,” she urged the crowd.

So you’ll have to excuse United Methodist Pastor Ray Rooney for being a little skeptical as to her fitness for the pulpit.

“Considering the comments she’s made publicly about half of America,” he tells OneNewsNow, “it would be a very hard sell for her to stand behind a pulpit as a loving and caring person.”
