[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Charles Payne, host of Fox Business’ Making Money, was the ‘one lucky guy’ on Fox News’ Outnumbered on Monday. As the discussion turned to the massacre of Christians in Ethiopia by Islamic terrorist groups ISIS, Payne cited statistics that by 2050, 38% of the world’s Christians will live in sub-Sahara Africa. He stated that the Islamists know this and are trying to dissuade this from happening. He described this area as ground zero for the war on Christianity.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Referencing the killing of 28 Ethiopian Christians over the weekend by ISIS, Payne, as a picture of the men on their knees just prior to their beheading or shooting, said, “This kind of scene will happen over and over again, and I hope the world gets together and realizes that this is a war, a religious war, and it’s being fought everywhere on this planet.”
Outnumbered co-host Harris Faulkner pondered whether America is tasked with a greater responsibility when it comes to what is happening to Christians in that part of the world. She added that we have “In God We Trust” and are a Judeo-Christian nation. She then asked her cohorts to weigh in.
Melissa Francis said, “This goes back to expanding reach beyond our border. We’ve gotten in so much trouble doing that before. I want to say yes. I am a Christian. You know, it is so hard to watch this go on. It is an assault on Christianity. But we are spread so thin. I just don’t know.”
Jedidiah Bila responded to Francis by saying we need to realize that we cannot be everywhere and we cannot solve everything.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]To this, Payne once again chimed in and used the example of troops being sent to Africa by Obama to combat Ebola. He said, “Although this is not nation building. We sent a bunch of troops out to stop Ebola, I think we’ve gotta find a way to help Christians around the world.”
The hosts excitedly got behind Francis’s response when she said, “Then we either have to go out and wipe out ISIS or not.”
