Boris Johnson: “I Will Defend Christians Around The World”


Thank you Boris Johnson!

I knew I liked this guy from the very first time I learned of him.

Just like President Trump, he is boldly speaking out in DEFENSE of Christians.

How refreshing to hear!

Quote:

“We stand with Christians everywhere, in solidarity, and will defend your right to practice your faith.”

Here's more, from Fox News:

In his first Christmas message as Britain's prime minister, Boris Johnson discussed the "good that is to come" under his leadership and committed to tackling the persecution of Christians around the world.

"Today of all days I want us to remember those Christians around the world who are facing persecution. For them, Christmas Day will be marked in private, in secret, perhaps even in a prison cell. As prime minister, that's something I want to change," he said in a video posted to Twitter.

"We stand with Christians everywhere, in solidarity, and will defend your right to practice your faith."

Johnson also expressed gratitude to law enforcement, public servants and health-care providers working over the holiday.

"As many of us are enjoying a break at this time of year, let's not forget all those who have selflessly put their celebrations on hold. On behalf of the whole country, I want to say a huge thank you to our amazing NHS [National Health Service] staff... thank you also to our police, to all those public servants working tirelessly this Christmas."

Johnson also extended his "personal gratitude" to members of the armed forces deployed over the holidays, thanking their "friends, family and children back home who have an empty chair at the table."

Days earlier, Johnson released a similar Hanukkah message, where he marked the start of the Jewish holiday with a commitment to combat anti-Semitism.

"It is a time to celebrate not just the miracle of the oil but also your unique identity...to pop the menorah in the window and to say to the world. ... I am Jewish, and I am proud of it," he said.

More, from the Epoch Times:

Boris Johnson has vowed to defend Christians around the world in his first Christmas message since becoming U.K prime minister.

In a video posted to Twitter, Johnson acknowledged that Christmas Day is “first and foremost, a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.”

“It is a day of inestimable importance to billions of Christians the world over,” he added.

He continued: “Today of all days, I want us to remember those Christians around the world who are facing persecution. For them, Christmas Day will be marked in private, in secret, perhaps even in a prison cell.

“As prime minister, that’s something I want to change. We stand with Christians everywhere, in solidarity, and will defend your right to practice your faith.”

Johnson also thanked those working in public services on Christmas day, particularly members of the NHS and Armed Forces.

“As many of us are enjoying a break at this time of year, let’s not forget all those who have selflessly put their celebrations on hold,” he said.

“On behalf of the whole country, I want to say a huge thank you to our amazing NHS [National Health Service] staff … many of whom will be working throughout the holidays to take care of us.”

“Thank you also, to our police, to all those public servants working tirelessly this Christmas,” he added.

Johnson also extended his “personal gratitude” to members of the armed forces currently on deployment and to their “friends, family, and children back home who have an empty chair at the table when they tuck into their Christmas dinner.”

Finally, he asked the country to reflect on the year and celebrate the “good that is to come” under his leadership.

The prime minister’s message to Christians comes shortly after he shared a similar one to mark the start of the Jewish holiday, Hanukkah and spoke of his commitment to combat anti-Semitism.
