Many Christians in the United States and throughout the globe have tried to excuse Bashar al-Assad’s tyrannical rule of Syria because he claims to be protecting Christian minorities from terrorists in the region.
But let’s be clear: he’s using Christians as a political shield to deflect attention from his widespread violence and murderous campaign against his own people.
Let’s not mince words here: the violence the Assad regime has inflicted on the children of Aleppo these past few days is a total affront to our God and the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We must do everything in our power to make sure the politicians in Washington are paying attention to the greatest wartime assault on human dignity in recent world history.
Silence never again.
