Christians in the Philippines join campaign against Christian persecution

Catholic churches in the Philippines are being bathed in red light tonight to bring attention to Christian persecution.
Churches are going red tonight to raise awareness for Christian persecution.
LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - Aid to the Church in Need is raising awareness of Christian persecution by casting churches in red light on the night of Nov. 22. The display is called 'Red Wednesday.'
According to statistics, Christian persecution is at or is close to all-time highs with Christians facing discrimination, violence, and even death for their beliefs. Christians are thought to be the most persecuted faith around the globe. Persecution abounds even in countries where Christianity is considered mainstream, such as in the United States.
In other parts of the world, converting to Christianity can result in a death sentence.
No Christian nation imposes such penalties on those who convert to other religions or claim to have no beliefs.
The Red Wednesday campaign was launched in the United Kingdom in November of last year and has since spread around the world. Red is the color of blood and Christian martyrdom.
