Global Violence Against Christians on the Rise?

This last year has seen an apparent upsurge in violence against Christians around the world. Too often, American Christians are ignorant of these things, so I thought I’d simply post some links to relevant news articles from major secular publications on recent happenings in Egypt and Iraq, plus a few other things of note.

I am not alarmist about persecution, but I do think it is important that we pay attention to what is going on around the world and stand with our brothers and sisters at the very least in prayer. In a country like ours, which is known for standing up for equal treatment of people both at home and around the world – whether for political, social or religious reasons – I am surprised at the lack of significant attention being given to these situations.
