Voice Of The Martyrs To Feature Stories Of Americans Who Endure Trump Bashing
To say the current American political and cultural climate is volatile is a gross understatement. There are currently calls for protests, boycotts, and other acts of resistance every day. U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters recently called Democrats to confront Trump supporters in public. And confrontation has certainly begun. There are boycotts, shouting matches, and even food fights. Yes... food fights.
Things have escalated so quickly that the premier Christian persecution watchdog organization, "Voice Of The Martyrs" has decided to highlight the persecution of Trump followers alongside its coverage of churches in Egypt being burned, Chinese pastors being arrested, and Syrian Christians being beheaded. The first installment next month will include stories about Sarah Huckabee Sanders being refused service at a restaurant because she works for President Trump and also a cover story about a man who threw a soft drink at a Trump supporter.
Steve Daniels, a board member for Voice of the Martyrs says that the inclusion of such stories came about after much prayer and also pressure from Franklin Graham and former Governor Mike Huckabee. "We know that anyone who seeks to live Godly will suffer persecution. That is Biblical. But obviously there is a demon spirit at work in America that drives Democrats and other Liberals to attack Republican Christians. And this is tied to their support of God's most honored and blessed servant, President Donald Trump. The leading GOP Christians in America helped us see this with constant phone calls and emails. After a while we just couldn't chalk it up to petty political arguments anymore. Obviously when a possible Christian is drenched in Diet Coke, you've gone to the next level. So we bumped the feature story about 138 Sudanese Christian girls being kidnapped by Muslim extremists, in order to raise awareness of the teasing being endured by Trump supporters at Whataburgers across America."
Mike Huckabee shared with us part of the email he sent to Voice of the Martyrs, "I'm not suggesting that the persecution endured by Christ followers around the world is not important. But we should recognize that persecution against Trump followers is serious because he is trying to bring freedom and justice around the world. He is God's man. If he succeeds in America, it will obviously end persecution everywhere. This is why imprisoned Christians in North Korea should be praying hard for a young man in Texas who had his 'Make America Great Again' hat stolen by a Democrat. These Liberals have no faith in Christ, or in Trump. An attack on Trump's America is an attack on Christianity. When America is great again, the world will be great again."
Upon hearing of the situation in America, an unnamed imprisoned pastor in Iran wept, "I had no idea. I'm so focused on reuniting with my family someday that I had not even considered that highly paid professing Christians in the American government are sometimes turned away from over-priced restaurants. God have mercy."
