Obama’s Religious Test for Refugees Bars Christians

Barack Obama and the mainstream media have been braying for weeks about Donald Trump and his so-called “religious test” banning Muslims from immigrating to the United States.stuart varney

But it turns out Barack Obama already has a “religious test” for refugees . . . no Christians allowed.

Those Syrian refugees, who we are supposedly vetting thoroughly, come from camps run by the United Nations. There are no Christians in those camps. They risked death if they seek refuge there. So the refugees who are on the list, who get on the list, they are almost entirely Muslim. The UN system accepted by Mr. Obama effectively locks Christians out.

This is appalling. President Obama has failed to acknowledge the grave crisis for Christianity in the Mideast. Quite simply, the whole region is being ethnically cleansed. The Christian presence will soon be gone entirely. And the slaughter continues.

Think about it. Christians are refugees, fleeing terror. They aren’t migrants looking for a better economy; for them it’s life or death. They are the true victims of religious tyranny. Frankly I think they qualify as victims of genocide but Mr. Obama will not acknowledge their unique and horrific situation. Instead we accept and pay for large numbers of Muslims. We are accepting here a religious test that’s being imposed over there. It’s one week to Christmas, and as President Obama begins his Christmas vacation there, few Christian refugees will be celebrating in the peace and freedom of America, and that is a disgrace.
