*Persecution is the systematic mistreatment of an individual o by another individual or group. Common amongst them is religious persecution and not a new thing.
As Christians marked the persecution, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ more than two thousand years ago this past Easter weekend, fast forward two thousand years later and many Christians, followers of Christ are still be persecuted in all sorts of manner and violence and with trepidation around the world.
This Resurrection Sunday gone, most of the over 65 victims, of the suicide bomb attack at a park in the eastern city of Lahore in Pakistan on Sunday evening were women and children. The bomb attack was targeted at Christians and even though they were caught up in the bomb attack, many of those that died were also Moslems. No individual or groups deserve persecution for their beliefs. Live and let live!
