Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, president of the Christian Association of Nigeria, met with lawmakers on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. calling for U.S. help in the growing violence and persecution of Christians in his home country of Nigeria. There are some 80 million Christian believers in Nigeria. In northern Nigeria there has been terrible suffering at the hands of militant terrorists in their country.

At first, the focus of attacks was upon the churches–killing Christian believers who professed faith in Jesus Christ and burning their buildings to the ground. Now, the terrorists have turned to the schools and are killing innocent children.

National Press Club,

“America has a strong history of civil rights and my hope is that our brothers here can awaken the conscience of humanity to stop this genocide.”

According to estimates from the Associated Press, more than 800 Christians have lost their lives in the unchecked violence and persecution of Christian believers in Nigeria. The Islamic group, Boko Haram, has has taken credit for the violent bloodshed that has been spilled there. Boko Haram is a militant fringe group whose leader, Abubakar Shekau, will continue to promote violence and persecution throughout the region until all of Nigeria comes under Sharia law.

    The Dog Says:-
    We need to help our Christian Brothers and Sisters in Nigeria and other Muslim countries.

  2. I expect to hear that Obama jumped for joy at hearing the news of Christian deaths. The United States government refuses to do what is moral and right. I will not hold my breath waiting to see Obama actually do something remotely Presidential.

  3. I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.2.My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
    Psalm 121

    They changed verse 2 to; My help cometh from my big,all powerful idol which can save us,
    They have no power with God because they chase after false gods.
    What they are doing is blaspheming God saying ;We don’t need God,we have ObamaNation,America.

    Israel suffers from the same abominable sin and they will suffer for chasing idols for peace when only the LORD can bring peace.

"If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14 God's call to the world! Are you ready?
