Eighty percent of all acts of religious persecution in the world today are directed against Christians, but in the West it is often difficult to conceive of Christianity as a persecuted minority. Yet, every day in the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent and parts of sub-Saharan Africa, Christians pay in blood for their faith in a rising tide of legal oppression, social harassment and direct physical violence. Christians today form the most persecuted religious body on the planet, and too often, its new martyrs suffer in silence. This session will sketch the global war against Christians and highlight what we can do about it.
