“This isn’t going to be fought with a conventional war, it’s going to require Islam to police Islam,” Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul said to a gathering of conservative voters Friday as he described what he called a “war against Christianity” by Islamic extremists.
There’s a war raging against Christianity, but the attackers must police themselves, says Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R).
“From Boston to Zanzibar, there’s a worldwide war on Christianity,” the world’s most-practiced religion, he said Friday at the Values Voters Summit, an annual conservative gathering. The intensity of attacks is so high, he later added, that it’s “almost as if we lived in the Middle Ages,” a period that included the Crusades.
Today’s war is perpetrated by “a fanatical element of Islam,” Rand said, adding that most Muslims are not commited to violence against Christians. However, those who are number in the tens of millions, he said. And it falls upon Muslims themselves to take on their violent brothers.
