Last week, on the front page of the Wall Street Journal stood every bit the muscle and bone of a warrior with his wife celebrating his seemingly miraculous recovery from Ebola.

Dr. Kent Brantly said, “God saved my life; the direct answer to thousands and thousands of prayers.”

Brantly worked through Dr. Billy Graham’s son’s “Samaritan’s Purse”; his colleague Nancy Writebol worked with SIM USA, another Christian charity.

Why would ISIS in Iraq, the regime in North Korea, the Islamic Jihad in Sudan, even the genocide of the Third Reich irrationally despise the exercise of Judeo-Christian faith which often involves providing clean water wells, medical clinics, hospitals, schools, books and clothing?

Honor this hero.
