American Anglicans Show Solidarity with Persecuted Nigerian Christians

A resolution expressing support for Christians in Nigeria, under siege by the Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram, passed unanimously at the Annual Synod of the Missionary Diocese of CANA East on Saturday, May 3, 2014, in Wayne, PA. The Synod was the second annual gathering of the diocese, one of four missionary dioceses in the Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA) led by Missionary Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Julian M. Dobbs.

Thousands of Nigerian Christians, including Anglicans, have been killed or injured by Boko Haram, which was finally designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the U.S. State Department last November. The radical Islamist group seeks the eradication of Christians and the total Islamization of Nigeria.

    Nice article by Faith McDonnell of IRD. I’m glad that the terrible plight of Nigerian Christians is finally getting some of the public attention that it deserves. If the mass media are finally beginning to sit up and take notice, it’s partly because of persistent advocates like Faith McDonnell (an Anglican herself) who keep documenting the grim reality of religious persecution around the world.

    Well done, Faith. I’m glad that +Grant LeMarquand posted a note of gratitude and appreciation.
