Kudos to Glenn Beck and his team for taking action and making a difference in the lives of more than 100 Christian refugees from Syrian and Iraqi to-date. These people have been displaced by ISIS. We don’t hear much about them. Instead, we seem to be more worried about hurting Muslims feelings. But the truth of the matter is, Islamic extremists are wiping out populations of native Christians in the region. Beck said:
“While the world watched in near total silence, their ancient churches and monasteries were destroyed, their children were sold on slave markets, their property was confiscated, and those who survived have faced extortion and continued threats of kidnapping and beheading.”
He could have reported on it and moved on to the next story. But instead, he did something. He used his prominence to reach his audience and move 130,000+ individuals to action to save lives across the globe from him!
The good news is… you can still get involved in this mission, go to Mercury One Charity and make a donation. They will continue extracting Christian refugees, relocating them, and providing follow-up integration assistance. God bless them in their mission!
