We must pray! Lives of the innocent, the abused, the tortured are at stake. I read an article in Christian News that lead me to another article from the Daily Beast that read as follows:
When ISIS isn’t burning alive captive pilots or beheading innocent journalist, it's selling, crucifying, and burying alive children. A United Nations watchdog reports that ISIS has been executing children in this medieval fashion and then burying them alive. (ISIS started crucifying adults last year.) The so-called Islamic State has also been selling children into sex slavery, the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child said. It doesn’t stop there: “We have had reports of children, especially children who are mentally challenged, who have been used as suicide bombers, most probably without them even understanding,” said committee expert Renate Winters.
These atrocities are unthinkable to many of us who live in a civilized society. But, the sad truth is these cutthroat barbarians have no regard for human life nor human dignity. To us the thought of terrorizing anyone is so far removed from our logic and yet there are those who would destroy little children crucifying them and setting them on ﬁre! It is so difficult for us to imagine, yet it is happening. Of course, the barbaric Roman government crucified our Savior while the Jewish Sanhedrin cheered them on.
Join me in prayer for the protection of these children and justice on those who would perpetrate these heinous acts.
