British House of Commons Discusses Persecution of Christians



On December 3, members of the House of Commons devoted nearly three hours to discussing the persecution of Christians, with some calling upon the British government to do more to address the issue. 

“I believe that the persecution of Christians is the biggest story in the world that has never been told, and its importance cannot be underlined enough,” said Member of Parliament Jim Shannon, who began the discussion. “The subject burdens me, and many other members, judging by the number here.” 
\
“100,000 Christians will be massacred this year because of their beliefs,” he continued. “200 million Christians will be persecuted due to their faith.”
