A 14-year-old Christian girl was kidnapped by Muslim radicals and punished in the most horrific way for practicing her faith — having her genitals mutilated.
The girl, Lydia, was walking home from school in West Africa when she was kidnapped by radicals and brutally circumcised. The men then left her alone, bleeding in agony and screaming for help.
A local Christian heard Lydia’s screams and rushed her to the hospital. When she arrived, she fell into a coma and continues to struggle for her life.
The Gospel Herald reported that Lydia was targeted because of her Christian faith. She “loved to speak of how He died on the cross of Calvary and rose from the dead to save everyone from sin and death.”
The heartbreaking story quickly went viral, with many calling for the criminals to be brought to justice.
“More people should read this story and maybe they would understand why Trump wants to put a ban on Muslims [in] this country. What if this was your daughter? Get it together America!” one reader on Facebook commented.
“It’s high time we put a stop to this. We need to start showing them we mean business. We need to stand our ground and back up our president. These people need to be kicked the heck out of our country now before this happens to our daughter. Libtards and dems need to be put in the place. If it means we kick their ass then so be it. It’s time,” another added.
Other readers felt as though the people who made headlines for the women’s march should have been marching for girls like Lydia.
“Why don’t the woman out there marching for “women’s rights” actually march for [women] and their rights in other countries instead of dressing trashy and yelling about nothing. Why don’t they be the change in the world that they want? Oh because that means actually doing something. Not crying and blaming a man that has nothing to do with the way they feel they are being treated,” one reader commented.
