Christian persecution in the Middle East is as bad as it was before the Edict of Milan

Persecution of Christians in the Middle East has reached the same level as before the Roman Emperor Constantine legalized Christianity in the Edict of Milan in 313, seventeen centuries ago this year.

Abbot Tryphon speaks out against the persecution of Christians in the Middle East. For those of you who are fans of the original Star Trek series, you may remember an episode entitled “Bread and Circuses.” It portrayed an alternate world in which the Roman Empire had not fallen, and Christians were persecuted and enslaved in an era that otherwise resembled the late 1960s, when the programs were aired. It seemed a little fantastic in 1968. However, 45 years later, the now Muslim-dominated Middle East makes the fictional Star Trek version of Christian persecution seem mild by comparison.
