Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the leader of the world’s Anglicans, said Friday the forced exodus in northern Iraq was part of an “evil pattern” of Christians being “persecuted for their faith”.
The Church of England leader said Britain should open its doors to refugees fleeing the jihadist Islamic State advances and urged the international community to challenge the “culture of impunity” allowing the extremists’ actions to take place.
“The horrific events in Iraq rightly call our attention and sorrow yet again. Christians and other religious minorities are being killed and face terrible suffering,” Welby said in a statement.
“What we are seeing in Iraq violates brutally people’s right to freedom of religion and belief.
