President indeed has ‘religious test’ for refugees coming to America


Christians continue to be the most persecuted religious people in the world this Christmas, but they don’t figure to get much help from Western governments in Washington, London or Brussels.

Despite President Obama’s recent comment that it would be un-American to apply a “religious test” for refugees seeking a safe haven in the United States, it appears his administration has already applied such a test, at least for Syrian refugees.

Christians make up 10 percent of the Syrian population, and about 350,000 of them have been run out of their homes. Their property has been stolen by Muslims affiliated with ISIS, al-Nusra Front and other Islamic factions. Their men have been beheaded or summarily shot, their women raped and forced into submission.

The dismal numbers

Yet, during all of 2015, the U.S. has managed to take in a paltry 31 Christians, or 1.4 percent of the total Syrian contingent that has been resettled by Obama’s State Department.

This is even more concerning when considering the fact that the U.S. government pays nine private agencies to do its resettlement work – and six of the nine are affiliated with Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopal, evangelical and Jewish organizations. These groups are paid hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to resettle Muslims into 180 U.S. cities and towns.

The U.S. has resettled 2,192 Syrian refugees in 2015, according to the federal database for refugee resettlement.

Here is the breakdown of Syrian refugees by religion:

  • 2,149 Muslims (98 percent) – including 2,089 Sunni, eight Shiite
  • 31 Christians (1.4 percent)
  • Two atheists
  • Six Zoroastrians
  • Two Bahai
  • One “other”
  • One listed no religious affiliation

The same anti-Christian bias has taken shape in the United Kingdom. The Catholic Archbishop of Westminster, Vincent Nichols, told the BBC Christians were the most persecuted people in Syria, but few of them would receive sanctuary in his country.

The government of Prime Minister David Cameron has said it will bring 20,000 Syrian refugees to Britain directly from United Nations refugee camps around Syria.

Nichols spelled out why so few Christians get resettled in America, Canada, the U.K. or the rest of Europe.

It’s largely because these countries all resettle refugees
