Christian martyrdom may be the world’s most underreported story. But if a study conducted by the Center for the Study of Global Christianity is true, we are in the midst of a terrible international pogrom against Christians, with 90,000 reportedly killed a year because of their faith.

Thanksgiving week is usually when stragglers aim to screen in order to meet those groups’ deadlines. Continue reading
