Standing up for the persecuted

by Richard on October 20, 2007

I heard an interview with a representative of Christian Solidarity Worldwide, a human rights organisation specialising in religious freedom. CSW works on behalf of those persecuted for their Christian beliefs and promotes religious liberty for all. He was talking about religious freedom in the Middle East, particularly the abuse (and sometimes persecution) of Christians. Iran was one of the worst offenders, which came as no surprise. Egypt and Saudi Arabia were worse. (It does my heart good to know that the British arms industry supports such worthy regimes)

But the worst country on CSW’s list? Iraq. Since the fall of Saddam, persecution of Christians in Iraq has increased very significantly. Another foreign policy victory, then.

Meanwhile, the Church is suffering in the USA too. Bene Diction describes the fightback.
