Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
President of the United States
We petition that you as our elected official strongly discourage/ stop all persecution of those in other countries whose faith differs from that of the majority's.
According to the World Evangelical Alliance, over 200 million Christians in at least 60 countries are denied fundamental human rights solely because of their faith. David B. Barrett, Todd M. Johnson, and Peter F. Crossing in their 2009 report in the International Bulletin of Missionary Research (Vol. 33, No. 1: 32) estimate that approximately 176,000 Christians will have been martyred from mid-2008 to mid-2009. This, according to the authors, compares to 160,000 martyrs in mid-2000 and 34,400 at the beginning of the 20th century. If current trends continue, Barrett, Johnson and Crossing estimate that by 2025, an average of 210,000 Christians will be martyred annually. V.O.M.
An estimated 200 million believers in over 60 countries are subjected to harsh persecution, Egypt’s estimated ten million Christians constitute the largest Christian minority in the Muslim world. MagicStatistics.com
Thus we are petitioning for the strong discouragement/stopping of religious persecution in other countries.
