Giving hope to persecuted Christians since 1995

(Reuters) – A Vatican diplomatic campaign to have “Christianophobia” recognized as an evil equal to hatred of Jews and Muslims is causing concern among some Christian activists and diplomats who draft new human rights rules. The discrete drive, which the Roman Catholic Church first mentioned publicly last Friday, seeks official recognition by the United Nations and other international organizations of discrimination against and persecution of Christians. The Holy See is pressing this point despite two setbacks this year when the European Union refused to refer to the continent’s Christian heritage in its new constitution and turned down a traditionalist Catholic as a new commissioner.
