Rand Paul Tells Religious Broadcasters: "There is a worldwide war on Christians"

October 2, 2013

Senator Rand Paul spoke at a meeting of the National Religious Broadcasters today and proclaimed, “There is a worldwide war on Christians by a fanatical element of Islam.” Senator Paul says that while this element may be a minority, it’s still a lot of people. “True, a minority of Muslims condone killing of Christians, but that minority numbers in the tens of millions.” Paul went on to say that he doesn’t believe wars with Muslims will settle this issue. “I see less and less likelihood that conventional wars and armies will defeat 50 million Muslims spread across the planet. Make no mistake, we should actively defend ourselves but the ultimate answer must come from Islam itself."
