Nine out of the ten countries with the worst records of persecution against Christians are MUSLIM. The 10th is North Korea. A 2014 Pew Study reports, Christians are the most persecuted group in the world. In 2013, a Vatican spokesman reported 100,000 Christians are murdered each year. Churches are regularly burned in Nigeria, Egypt, Syria, Pakistan, Indonesia, and Iraq. Christian pastors are being jailed and beheaded today in Muslim countries.
It is time for Christians of all sects, and all people of conscience, to speak up for Christians being violently persecuted in the Middle East, North Africa, and anywhere else this violence is taking place. The Prayer March For Persecuted Christians is a Clarion call for the Clergy in the United States to speak out for the voiceless.
Join us on May 17 in Orlando, FL to give voice to the voiceless.
