Rockford, Il – 7-25-2014 – ProLifeCorner.com- – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative - Christians in Mosul Iraq found the Arabic letter “N” standing for “Nazarene,” written on their homes, Churches, and schools by Islamist terrorists. It was a sign to convert, pay crushing taxes, or leave immediately with nothing or be killed. Please keep the Christians of Iraq in your prayers, who have nothing but faith, and the generosity of others to sustain their existence.

You may kill our brethren and expel them, but we Christians will never go away. Continue reading →
