 "The Worldwide Persecution of Christians"

"Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you, and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man."  Luke 6:22

More than 100 million Christians suffer persecution throughout the world, on the sole account of their faith.  Persecution exists in many forms including hostile attitudes and discrimination, the torture and murder of Christians, the destruction of churches, an outright prohibition against Christianity, and in the worst cases, genocide.   This often under-reported and worsening crisis has largely been ignored by governments in the West. 

Michael Alti, a Catholic originally from the Middle East, will explore some of the most abhorrent cases of persecution, the complex causes for it, and suggestions for action that Westerners may take against persecution.  Mr. Alti is a Board Member with the St. Thomas More Society.  He is the founder of the Alti Law Firm, practicing land use, environmental law, and business law.  He is also of counsel to Neuland & Whitney, representing community associations.  Mr. Alti has been active with a number of local civic and humanitarian organizations, including Maronite Outreach, the Newport Beach Bicycle Safety Committee, and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
