Destroyed Coptic Church John L. Allen Jr. writes in The Spectator that the global persecution of Christians is the most underreported story of our time.  “According to the International Society for Human Rights . . . 80 per cent of all acts of religious discrimination in the world today are directed at Christians . . . 11 Christians are killed somewhere in the world every hour, seven days a week and 365 days a year, for reasons related to their faith.” And yet, “Say ‘religious persecution’ to most makers of cultured secular opinion, and they will think of the Crusades, the Inquisition, Bruno and Galileo, the Wars of Religion and the Salem witch trials.

Pakistani Christians condemn terrorist attacks Eighty-five people have died in Pakistan as a result of a terrorist attack on All Saints Church in Peshwar. Hundreds more are injured.

This choice cannot stand. It serves nothing. Only the path of peace can build a better world. But if you all will not build it, no one else will.
