Five Myths about Anti-Christian Persecution

Interesting article at the National Catholic Reporter by John L. Allen about misrepresentations in media and politics about the persecution of Christians:

Myth No. 1: Christians are vulnerable only where they’re a minority.

Myth No. 2: It’s all about Islam

Myth No. 3: No one saw it coming

Myth No. 4: It’s only persecution if the motives are religious

Myth No. 5: Anti-Christian persecution is a right-wing issue


""Feminists and homosexuals and tree-huggers". Wow. Some Christian you are."

    A interesting article along with very interesting responses to it. One can really see the highly politicized atmosphere when almost every other comment complains about being unfairly named.
