Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me…
But not those wacky Christians.
The U.S. State Department has denied creating a special category to ok visas for persecuted Assyrian Christians.
Creeping Sharia reports:
The U.S. State Department may have sent a signal to an Anglican bishop in Iraq that despite persecution and harassment from the terror group known as ISIS, Christians in that country will not find any support from the United States government.
According to Faith J.H. McDonnell of Philos Project, the Rt. Rev. Julian M. Dobbs, bishop of the Diocese of CANA East (Convocation of Anglicans in North America), revealed that part of U.S. foreign policy during an interaction with the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM). Dobbs made his case to the State Department on behalf of a group of Assyrian Christians who are desperate to leave northern Iraq.
“There is no way that Christians will be supported because of their religious affiliation,” the State Department said.
This reminds me of the 937 German-Jewish passengers of the MS St. Louis who undertook the “voyage of the damned” only to be turned away by country after country including the USA. After finally returning to Europe, it is estimated that about a quarter of the refugees perished at the hands of the Nazis in concentration camps.
