QUOTES FROM A FEW PERSECUTION SOURCES




"A prominent national leader in the unregistered Protestant house church movement in China was executed Oct.14 by firing squad, the second leader of this movement to be executed in the past two months."

"Arrests of Christians, police fines of house churches, and imprisonments continue across Vietnam. Yet they respond, "Suffering is not the worst thing that can happen to us ... disobedience to God is the worst thing."

"In a summary of the religious persecution in Sudan published on its AngelsInSudan.com website, the Institute on Religion and Democracy points out that "tens of thousands of women and children have been abducted and taken north into slavery."

"In China, Sudan, Vietnam, Egypt, Pakistan, and many other countries around the world, Christians are forced to endure severe persecution just because of their faith. It's time Congress speaks out."

"I am sorry to say that Saudi Arabia continues to hold the dubious title of world's worst persecutor of Christians," said Terry Madison, U.S. President and CEO of Open Doors. "This country does not allow any visible forms of Christianity in its land and this is something that we feel is deplorable. Those that are found to be practicing their faith -- usually visiting guest workers in the country -- are often imprisoned, threatened with death, and often deported."

"NEPAL - Twenty-eight Christians were hospitalized on Good Friday after being beaten by police in Patan, in Nepal's Katmandu Valley."

"BURMA - While the Chin people of western Burma celebrated 100 years of Christianity in March, seven pastors reported that the military government is carrying out a campaign to coerce the mostly Christian Chin to become Buddhists."

"CHECHNYA - Aleksandr Kulakov, leader of Grozny Baptist Church in the capital of Chechnya, was beheaded and his severed head displayed at a local market."

"The persecution of Christians in Iran today is not a series of isolated events or the result of individual prejudices but rather a state policy implemented at all levels in various forms. It affects both individuals as well as the church as a whole."

"Reliable sources in China have informed International Christian Concern that the Chinese government has ordered the execution of China's most prominent Christian house church leaders. Xu Yong Ze could be executed any time soon, according to the source."

"Vietnamese police have raided Christian prayer meetings, detaining and harassing worshipers across the country in recent months, news reports say. "
