I’ve written before on the persecution of Christians outside the U.S. and how little of it is being reported to us. Just browse the “Persecution” category to the right to see some of the post titles.
Today, I offer this 22-minute podcast by Terry Mattingly and Todd Wilken of GetReligion.org (“The Persecution of Christians in the Middle East“), which does a highly-commendable job of explaining why such news is hard for us to get.
I commend it highly because it give a fair-minded answer to this question. It’s not simply a matter of the media blacking out news about Christians, though the general bias against biblical Christianity in society today is certainly part of the answer.
It’s a very informative 22 minutes.
