"The early Christians risked death and torture for their faith. Some were crucified, others beheaded. Still others were roasted, shot with arrows, or thrown to wild beasts. A Roman emperor, Caligula, burned them to light up his garden parties. In various countries, Christians still suffer torture for Christ. In fact, according to Richard John Neuhaus," "more Christians have been martyred in this century than in all previous centuries put together. Around the world, some 300,000 are put to death annually for their faith." "Thousands are also sold into slavery or sent to" "reeducation" camps. "Yet the cause of Christ continues to spread. "
The thought patrols are way out of hand in these countries. Makes non-believers look bad.
