The persecution of Christianity

The Catholic writer John Allen has written some well-sourced articles, and now the book The Global War on Christians, to inform us that persecution of Christians is real and worldwide. The counter-jihad (including many Oriental Christians and Muslim apostates) wants us to see this as a Muslim affair, and it often is; but the Muslims are but one group among many in this outrage. They might not even be the worst.

Another Catholic writer Candida Moss (she's in Notre Dame) thinks that early Christian martyrdom stories are fabricated or at least embellished for propaganda purposes. She thinks that the Church should quit telling these stories, because Glenn Beck. She has a book out too.

I think that one of these two books deserves to be read, and that the other one is despicable and doesn't.
