Islamists in Iraq Tell Christians to ‘convert, pay a poll tax, leave by Saturday or die by the sword’

When even NPR says Christians are being persecuted and killed off, you know it’s true.  From All Things Considered:

ISIS, which calls itself the Islamic State, is solidifying its power in the city[;] they’ve even put a police force with their own cars and the markings of their state. . . . But people are also being executed and going missing every day so there is a growing sense of fear there.

. . .

You know, Christians have been in Mosul since the birth of Christianity 2000 years ago and now basically none are left. The Islamic State gave them an ultimatum — convert, pay a poll tax, leave by Saturday or die by the sword. They mark their homes with red paint and the letter N for Nassarah, a reference to word used for Christians in the Koran . . . .

Please join me in praying for the Christians of Iraq.
