In a speech at a summit on persecuted Christians hosted by the Billy Graham Evangelical Association, Vice President Mike Pence said Thursday that ISIS is guilty of genocide.
“Practitioners of terror harbor a special hatred for the followers of Christ and none more so than the barbarians known as ISIS. That brutal regime shows a savagery frankly unseen in the Middle East since the Middle Ages, and I believe ISIS is guilty of nothing short of genocide against people of the Christian faith, and it is time the world called it by name,” the vice president said.
“The reality is across the wide world, the Christian faith is under siege. Throughout the world, no people of faith today face greater hostility or hatred than followers of Christ,” Pence said.
