The leader of a group representing 100 million Hispanic evangelicals is calling on President Obama and Congress to stand up for persecuted Christians.

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, accused the president and members of Congress of failing to take the lead and protect the Middle East’s Christian population from the brutal abuses by ISIS.

“We call upon the President of the United States of America and Congress to specifically address the persecution of Christians by ISIS, Islamic totalitarianism and regimes in the Middle East; and call upon the United Nations to convene a summit on Christian persecution around the world,” Rodriguez wrote in a statement issued Wednesday.

He also called upon Christian churches to hold a one-minute moment of silence followed by prayer for the 21 Coptic Christians murdered by ISIS militants in Libya.
