Anglican Mainstream, a website based in the UK that advocates traditional values within the Church of England and the Anglican Communion, released information about anti-Christian persecution unleashed by the Islamic State - the terrorist army also known as ISIS and ISIL. According to the group, emails received from missionaries in Iraq are begging for prayer and solidarilty from fellow Christians. Andrew Symes is the editor of the website.

A message from Anglican Mainstream to supporters on September 18 said that in a town captured by the Islamic State, Muslim militants are going house to house and asking the children to denounce Jesus. According to Anglican Mainstream, a missionary wrote to say that so far no children have apostasized. However, all of them were killed by the Muslims for their witness, even while their parents were left unharmed. The missionaries in the area have decided to remain in solidarity with the local Christians, even in the face of death and without UN support. Anglican Mainstream declared that the missionary is "very afraid, has no idea how to even begin ministering to these families who have seen their children martyred. Yet he says he knows God has called him for some reason to be his voice and hands at this place at this time."

Furthermore, the missionaries are asking for prayers so as to maintain their courage under the circumstances. "And like the children accept martyrdom if he is called to do so. She asked me to ask everyone we know to please pray for them. These brave parents instilled such a fervent faith in their children that they chose martyrdom. Please surround them in their loss with your prayers for hope and perseverance."

Symes wrote of one of the missionaries, "She was able to talk to her brother briefly by phone. She didn’t say it but I believe she believes it will be their last conversation. Pray for her too. She said he just kept asking her to help him know what to do and do it. She told him to tell the families we ARE praying for them and they are not alone or forgotten — no matter what. Her email broke my heart."

The message from Anglican Mainstream also reported that Sean Malone of Crisis Relief International, who is working in Iraq, is also asking for prayers. Malone wrote a text message in which he described the genocide being meted out by the Islamic State in Iraq. "“We lost the city of Queragosh (Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are beheading children systematically. This is the city we have been smuggling food too. ISIS has pushed back Peshmerga (Kurdish forces) and is within 10 minutes of where our CRI team is working. Thousands more fled into the city of Erbil last night. The UN evacuated it’s staff in Erbil. Our team is unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!”

During the In Defense of Christians summit in Washington DC in early September, two Orthodox Christian nuns recounted rape, torture and sexual abuse of children and women. Mother Olga Yaqob and Sister Hatune Dogan denounced Western media for ignoring human rights violations committed by the Islamic State in iraq and Syria. Both recounted stories of Christian girls who were “repeatedly raped” and “misused” – some as young as 5-years-old. Mother Olga accused the media of ignoring the the Islamic State is “slaughtering, raping, kidnapping, taking ransom, killing, crucifying, and ridding the Christians of what they need.”

A bit late in the game for the Anglicans to concede that Chrislam doesn't work, but none the less welcome.

Of course all this slaughter and persecution has nothing to do with Islam. Not much!!!

this is a tragic and an almost predictable outcome of making nice to terrorists, or turning another cheek.

Amazing children to stand firm to their beliefs in the face of death. All power to them and their families.
Beyond tragic that they should have the need to do so.
