Christianpersecution.com is an initiative of the Archons to call attention to the disturbing increase in the persecution of Christians in the broad area of the Holy Lands and the Middle East, and elsewhere as well.  
The principal focus of this site is to provide ongoing news updates about the plight of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in its relationship with host Turkish government. 
This site also provides regular news of the persecution of Christians throughout the broader geographic region and around the world. As Orthodox Christians and Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, our concern for our fellow Christians is truly ecumenical; we stand in solidarity and raise our voices in fervent prayer for all of those around the world who are suffering for bearing the name of Jesus Christ.
