Speaking on condition of anonymity, sources have told The Examiner that the Obama administration has allegedly engaged in a top secret, highly classified program of infiltrating Christian churches in order to snoop on their activities.

…“There is a war on Christianity, not just from liberal elites here at home, but worldwide,” said Paul. “And your government, or more correctly, you, the taxpayer, are funding it. You are being taxed to send money to countries that are not only intolerant of Christians but openly hostile. Christians are imprisoned and threatened with death for their beliefs.”

Paul spent most of his speech talking about the persecution of Christians abroad and cited cases of gross injustice in Pakistan, Iraq, Egypt and Syria.

“It is clear that American taxpayer dollars are being used to enable a war on Christianity in the Middle East and I believe that must end,” said Paul…
