Prophecy Sign: Rising Christian Persecution
Indeed, where is Barack Obama in the midst of the global increase in Christian persecution? Does he care, and do Christians mean nothing to him? Evidently not at he goes about praising Islam as a creator of the American fabric. While Obama golfs, (Nero fiddled), the world continues to fall apart and the rise in Christian persecution greatly increases.
Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. Matthew 24:9 NIV
China Ramping Up Persecution of Christians
Chinese authorities are ramping up their persecution of Christian churches in response to what they perceive as an emerging threat to the communist regime, according to reports. Public security officials in recent days forcibly removed crosses from two churches in the southeastern coastal province of Zhejiang, the New York Times reported. Authorities have now issued orders to demolish more than 100 churches in the province—most of them state-approved, as opposed to the illegal underground communities suppressed by officials. Additionally, government officials have disrupted services, confiscated and destroyed church property, and in some cases detained members in the capital in Beijing, the eastern coastal province of Shandong, and the autonomous Xinjiang region in the northwest.

Catholic League slams Obama: ‘Do Christian lives mean so little to you?’
The head of the Catholic League issued a scathing criticism at President Obama, posting on his group’s website an essay that pointed to all the Christians being beheaded by Muslim terrorists and asking: Doesn’t that matter to you? “Christians are being beheaded all over the Middle East because they are Christians, and those carrying out this mass murder are doing so in the name of Islam,” Bill Donohue wrote on his group’s website, Newsmax reported. “Yet you continue to say and do absolutely nothing about these unspeakable crimes. Do Christians mean so little to you?” Mr. Donohue also referenced Mr. Obama’s end-of-Eid al-Fitr celebration remarks — when the president and first lady Michelle Obama spoke of the “many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation” — as a face slap to Christians.
