5 Things to Know about the Persecution of Christians
Jay Sekulow is regarded as one of the foremost free speech and religious liberties litigators in the US, and said America needs to do more to protect Christians here and abroad. “Christians face more persecution today than at any time in history, from jihadist regimes, to Muslim mobs, to genocidal terrorist armies. America can and must do more to protect these persecuted Christians around the globe.” You don’t have to go overseas to witness persecution of Christians. We see it on American soil. Schools ban prayer from football games. We hear about crosses being taken down since its offensive to people. In 2014, a mother was forced by the courts to take down a memorial cross honoring her son on the road side, as an atheist was offended by its meaning. Another incident happened in a Colorado high school. The board banned a group of students from singing Christ-centered songs after complaints were lodged by parents.
