Quite rightly, thinking people of conscience condemn the persecution of religious minorities.
How much thought is given to Christian persecution these days however, especially in Thirld World and developing countries?
The latest atrocity in Lahore deliberately targeted Christians, many of them children, on the admission of the Pakistan Taliban.
And on Good Friday ISIS terrorists carried out their horrific threat to crucify a priest who was kidnapped by the jihadis earlier this month. Father Tom Uzhunnalil was allegedly seized when four armed militants stormed an old people's home in Aden in Yemen on March 4 when they also shot dead nuns working there.
I am sickened by the cruelty inflicted on religious groups, whoever they are, ostensibly in the name of religion, but really in the name of power politics.
