The Vicar of Bagdad

660-Andrew-White-ReutersThe Vicar of Bagdad  “…1,096 of his parishioners at St. George’s have been killed in just the past five years.”…”A few months ago, 58 people were gunned down and killed during worship at the Syrian Catholic church [in Bagdad].” … “So many of our brothers and sisters here in Baghdad have been killed, kidnapped, or tortured…” See Joy in the Midst of Terror   Also, Meet the Vicar of Bagdad

And read about American Christian leaders who supported the invasion of Iraq in the name of ‘opening a door for the Gospel’. Now, there are less than 250,000 Christians left among some of the oldest Christian communities in the world. Before the U.S. invasion, there were about a million and a half Christians.  The Baptist Press quoted a Missionary at that time: “ “American foreign policy and military might have opened an opportunity for the Gospel in the land of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” See Wayward Christian Soldiers
