Presecution: the full story!

One consistent statistic in my blog stats is the arrival of people wanting to know about PRESECUTION.  I am amazed that what started off as a typo has become such a popular search subject. ;-)  Presecution is a misspelling of persecution which is defined by wikipedia as "the systematic mistreatment of an individual or group by another group."  The main concern of this blog, in regard to persecution, is the persecution of Christians in countries where they are minorities.  But just for the record, I believe persecution of anyone or any group of people is morally unacceptable.  The charity I support in relation to this is the Barnabas fund, but there are also some other great charities whose websites are full of infomation about the persecution that goes on around the world, and how you can help to alleviate it. for example: persecution.org, .com, .co.nz, and .net all take you to different sites and there is also Christian Solidarity Worldwide.

So welcome to the blog and please do take the opportunity to find out more about the persecution that takes place around the world.  If you have any other links to related charities please feel free to add them in the comments.

PS. I guess the word could also be misspelt as persecutoin, persecusion, persicution, persacution, persicutoin, persection, or persectuion.   Either way the above still applies.  :-)
