Christians Persecuted In Iraq

his transcript was typed from a recording of the program. ABC cannot guarantee its complete accuracy because of the possibility of mishearing and occasional difficulty in identifying speakers. Stephen Crittenden: Welcome to The Religion Report. The plight of Christian minorities in the Islamic Middle East is one of the 20th century tragedies to which we pay least attention. From the Copts in Egypt, to the Maronites, the Melkites in Lebanon, Orthodox and Chaldeans, the Christian population of the Middle East is a fraction of what it was, and more vulnerable than ever. Nowhere is the situation worse at the moment...

Moral Equivalency By The Numbers

oral equivalency by the numbers is probably not something you'll ever prove beyond a shadow of a doubt while strolling the halls of higher education, but you'll find plenty of chatter suggesting someone has.
