Christian author and humanitarian Johnnie Moore recently labeled the Obama administration and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton “Christophobic” for their records on protecting religious liberty at home and abroad.
Moore told NewsMax earlier this week that President Obama and Clinton have failed Christians, especially those experiencing violent persecution in the Middle East.
“The United States of America has a moral obligation to speak up, and we’re not doing it, and it starts at the top,” stated Moore, as reported by The Blaze.
In an interview with The Christian Post, where he serves as editorial advisor, Moore explained that his calling Obama and Clinton “Christophobic” is “an observation based upon facts.”
“They have repeatedly — and willfully — embraced Christophobic policies around the world that have enabled the further persecution, suffering or marginalization of Christian minorities when they could have made different decisions,” said Moore.
“They’ve repeatedly tried to downplay, diminish, and dilute the significant and escalating persecution of Christians around the world. They’ve also sometimes characterized those who speak up for Christian rights as Islamophobic when often times those advocating for Christians are also deeply immersed in refugee-related humanitarian work on behalf of the Islamic community as well.”
Moore added in his comments to CP that he was also concerned “by the ongoing judicial and legislative efforts to marginalize Christians in this country.”
“Rather than seeing the Christian community as having made meaningful contributions to history and culture, education, healthcare, and human rights the community is increasingly marginalized,” continued Moore.
“There’s no comparison between what is happening to Christians in Nigeria and Syria to what is happening here, except that anti-Christian sentiment — to some degree — undergirds it all.”
