"Christians thrown overboard left to drown by Obama"
I bet quite a few have noticed this evidence of "actions speak louder than words"...
In USA Today, Kirsten Powers reported on this:
"Western leaders — including Obama — will be remembered for their near silence as this human rights tragedy unfolded. The president's mumblings about the atrocities visited upon Christians (usually extracted after public outcry over his silence) are few and far between. And it will be hard to forget his lecturing of Christians at the National Prayer Breakfast about the centuries-old Crusades while Middle Eastern Christians were at that moment being harassed, driven from their homes, tortured and murdered for their faith.
A week and a half after Obama's National Prayer Breakfast speech, 21 Coptic Christians were beheaded for being 'people of the cross.' Seven of the victims were former students of my friend and hero 'Mama' Maggie Gobran, known as the 'Mother Theresa of Cairo' for her work with the poorest of the poor. She told me these dear men grew up in rural Upper Egypt and had gone to Libya seeking work to support their families. They died with dignity as they called out to their God, while the cowardly murderers masked their faces."
