Rand Paul: Foreign Aid fuels a ‘War on Christianity’

“We are now arming Islamic rebels who are allied with al Qaeda that attacked us on 9/11,” Paul (R-Ky.) said, speaking to the Values Voter Summit. “Does that make any sense at all? American tax dollars should never be spent to prop up a war on Christianity. But that’s what’s happening now across the globe.”

Don't necessarily disagree, but...

This kind of comment plays into a very false idea that many Christians are buying into, namely that Muslims, in general, are "out to destroy their way of life." The funding of certain people with undesirable ideology is correct.

It would be better to say, the psychopaths in Washington are funding a war on humanity worldwide.

Good point

Farmer ~ right on!

Why #warcrimes against millions of Christians in the Middle East are not being covered by the so called main stream media?
