European Parliament condemns persecution of Christians

Catholic World News - January 21, 2011

Members of European Parliament have passed a resolution condemning violence against Christians in Iraq and Egypt.

“I think we are in a very significant moment in the history of the European institutions, because for the first time we declared this kind of judgment, the fact that there exists the problem of persecution of Christians,” said Mario Mauro, an Italian member of the European Parliament.

    Wow. I would have expected to read that the European Parliament had passed a resolution condemning *tolerance* of Christians ...
