Religious Freedom & Persecution
A campaign to champion religious liberty and defend persecuted Christians who cannot defend themselves.
Last year was one of the bloodiest years yet for Christian believers. *
Every single day 8 Christians are killed, 23 Christians are raped or sexually harassed and 10 Christians are unjustly arrested or imprisoned because of their faith. **
There were more than 9,000 attacks on Christian churches in 51 countries last year. **
A BBC News report stated, “The persecution of Christians is nearing genocide.”
