Vatican Warns of Growing "Christianophobia"

"Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, the Vatican's foreign minister, spoke in the wake of attacks against Christians in India that have left at least 13 people dead this week. Pope Benedict has condemned the violence against Christians in Orissa but also deplored the killing of the Hindu leader. ' Christianophobia' is a growing problem around the world and it must be fought with the same determination as anti-Semitism or Islamophobia, the Vatican said on Friday."

More here. And see Asia News sources here.

Violence in eastern India has been against Catholic religious and Protestant missionaries. Please pray for their safety.
