Increasing levels of Christian persecution during 2019.
Baylor Professor Paul Marshall comments on ‘secularization theory,’ ignorance among diplomats and journalists and the culture wars.
Budapest, Dec.30.– Despite being the most persecuted religious minority in the world, Christians suffering persecution are often overlooked in the media and hardly given priority or special attention in government policy. This is particularly the case in Western countries whose foundations are, ironically, by and large Christian.
So why is there this dearth of coverage? In this interview in Budapest with the National Catholic Register at a conference on persecuted Christians, professor Paul Marshall, explains that various factors are in play.
Prof. Marshall holds the Jerry and Susie Wilson Chair in Religious Freedom at Baylor University.
