CHRISTIANOPHOBIA IS ALIVE IN THE LANDS OF MOHAMED
About time that they woke up. For the first time since the Roman pogroms against the early church, Christians around the world are being rounded up and persecuted for their beliefs because they are Christians. That the MEP’s finally found the backbone to mention it, merits the flying pig. KGS
European Parliament Adopts Resolution Condemning Attacks Against Christians
Vatican Radio: Members of the European Parliament today adopted a resolution condemning persecution and discrimination based on religion. In particular MEP’s condemned attacks against Christians in countries including Egypt, and Iraq.
They also called for a strategy to enforce the human right to freedom of religion, including a list of measures against states who knowingly fail to protect religious denominations.
Lydia O’Kane spoke to MEP Mario Mauro, who is head of the delegation of the EPP group in the European parliament.
He says there is now a growing awareness in Europe of the plight of Christians in many countries.
“I think we are in a very significant moment in the history of the European institutions, because for the first time we declared this kind of judgement, the fact that there exists the problem of persecution of Christians.”
MEP’s also want the forthcoming External Affairs Council of 31 January 2011 to discuss the persecution of Christians and respect for religious freedom. Listen to Mario Mauro’s interview with Lydia O’Kane.
