Kudos to Sen. Marco Rubio for teaming up with Southern Baptist leading thinker Russell Moore to demand Pres. Obama acknowledge the Christian genocide taking place in the Middle East.

Of course, it is not just Christians; other minority religions are being persecuted too. But the word is that the Obama White House is balking at including Christians in the designation of victims of genocide:

“Reports suggest that the State Department is ready to designate the Islamic State’s terror against the Yazidis as genocide, which it clearly is, but they might not to do so for equally embattled Christian communities,” Rubio and Moore wrote. “This is only one part of a refusal to come to grips with the full weight of these facts.”

Doing so is not just symbolic; it triggers treaty obligations. It is the least we can do for all these victims: name the truth they are experiencing.
