The Last Easter in Iraq?

cnn_c_left_logoNew York’s Cardinal Timothy Dolan and two Hollywood producers share a look at the crises in the Middle East with a challenging perspective:  we risk the end of Christianity in one of its earliest homes.

From their Good Friday op-ed on CNN:  With the rapid advance of ISIS through northern Iraq last summer,  “Iraq’s Nineveh Plain has been emptied of its ancient Christianity community, which existed there for more than 1,500 years.”

Catholic, Eastern,, Orthodox, and Evangelical Christians joined to echo the call from Cardinal Dolan, Northern Ireland’s Touched by an Angel actor Roma Downey, and  Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Apprentice, more).  Downey and Burnett have been active in humanitarian aid for all victims of the wars in Syria and northern Iraq.
