PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS ON RISE – IN U.S.
'It is dramatic, I have never seen levels of attacks like these'
A report by two U.S.-based religious freedom groups says anti-Christian persecution is on the rise in America.
The joint reportby Texas-based Liberty Institute and Washington-based Family Research Council says groups like the American Civil Liberties Union aren’t the only culprits. The report says government agencies around the U.S. are trying to push Christian expression out the door.
“It is dramatic,” says Liberty Institute Founder Kelly Shackleford, of the recent hike in reported incidents of persecution. “I have been doing these types of cases for almost 25 years now. I have never seen the levels of attacks like these and how quickly they are now proliferating.”
