Where is?

"Where is the conscience of the world? Where is the United Nations? Where is the American administration to protect peace and justice?"

- Yousif Habash, Iraqi-born bishop of the Syriac Catholic Church
Continued outpouring for help!  Where is the President of the United States?  Where is the United Nations Secretary General and Human Rights Council?

More importantly, where is the Pope?

He's been busy expending his moral authority on immigration reform for years!  That's great, and I agree with the overall message of treating people with respect, charity and love, but it's the repetitive nature of his behavior that speaks louder than words.

He he came out the week of the Murrieta incident again, in a time period where he didn't have to say anything.  He didn't have to get involved in what was devolving into a very racially charged debate.  We heard you the million times before, Pope Francis, but again?

Why do you put immigration reform before all other Gods, Pope Francis?

You put it before the Lives of His People.  Sad, but true.

What about the times you could have been talking about the people of your faith being actively slaughtered by another faith en masse?  When are you on record calling for the condemning of Islamic radicals and terrorists?

No, not this Pope.

Let's compare his statements on Iraq Christians and the situation in Gaza,

"Pope calls for prayers as militants chase all Christians out of Iraq city."


"Pope makes plea to Peres for restraint in Gaza war"

Where is his plea to Muslim radicals for restraint from slaughtering His own people?

Christianity is the world's most popular religion.  Do you want to be the Pope that let's it slip from such a stature?  I'm curious.  I'd like to know. People say there are self hating Jews, can there be a self hating Catholic Pope?  I think Catholicism is a beautiful religion, and I'm not Catholic, so I will understand if this is taken personally or out of context by some, but it's not about the Religion - this is about leadership.

Iraqi Christians are begging for help from the civilized world after Mosul, the northern city where they have lived and worshiped for 2,000 years, was purged of non-Muslims by ISIS, the jihadist terror group that claims to have established its own nation in the region.
