U.S. President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton are guilty of “Christophobia” amid the refugee crisis, according to Christian author and humanitarian Johnnie Moore.
In a recent interview with Newsmax, Moore slammed Obama and Clinton for their alleged inaction when faced with the crisis of violence against Christians in the Middle East. The Christian author told host J.D. Hayworth that the current U.S. administration did nothing when the atrocities of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) resulted in the displacement and death of many believers in the region.
Speaking to The Christian Post in a separate interview earlier this year, Moore observed that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry appears to hold a different stance from the State Department and the Obama administration when it comes to declaring ISIS atrocities against Christians as genocide.
The evangelical author lauded Kerry for standing up and deciding to make the genocide declaration on his own. He said the decision was a courageous one, especially since he did not have the support of the State Department.
“If you support Christians who have been the recipients of genocide in the Middle East,” Moore told Hayworth in the interview, “you’re called ‘Islamophobic,’ and it’s just incomprehensible.”
Moore told Hayworth that Obama and Clinton “sat on their hands” while hundreds of thousands of Christians were either displaced or killed by ISIS militants. He also noted that only 56 out of the 10,000 Syrian refugees admitted into the U.S. are Christians.
The humanitarian also accused the Democrats of destroying religious freedom in the United States, and added that he and some other people have been labeled as “Islamophobic” for merely speaking up for the Christian community. Favoring Christians, especially those facing threats, is not automatically tantamount to being anti-Islamic, he remarked.
“If you’re anti-Christian, henceforth, you are guilty of Christophobia,” said Moore. “You are a Christophobe. You are exhibiting Christophobic behavior, and we’re going to shame you with it.”
At the end of the interview, Moore said the United States is not doing its moral obligation to speak up on the issue. He said the action should come from the nation’s top leader.
