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
