The Prince said religious freedom could be a matter of life and death
Prince Charles has said that the scale of anti-Christian persecution is not widely appreciated.
Speaking on Radio 4s Thought for the Day, the Prince of Wales recalled meeting a Jesuit priest from Syria who gave him a graphic account of what life is like for those Christians he was forced to leave behind.
Persecution, especially by ISIS, has led many Middle East Christians to flee their homes. Iraqs Christian population has decreased from 1.4 million to 250,000.
Last week, Barack Obama signed the International Religious Freedom Act, which will make combatting persecution a bigger part of US foreign policy.
The Prince said religious freedom was an urgent problem around the world. Clearly for such people religious freedom is a daily stark choice between life and death. The scale of religious persecution around the world is not widely appreciated, nor is it limited to Christians in the troubled regions of the Middle East.
A recent report suggests that attacks are increasing on Yazidis, Jews, Ahmadis, Bahais and many other minority faiths, and in some countries even more insidious forms of religious extremism have recently surfaced which aim to eliminate all types of religious diversity.
He added that widespread violence and intolerance had echoes of the dark days of the 1930s.

Just this AM they made it sound like he as kissing ISIL.

Charles is a Muslim sympathizer.
Sounds like he sympathizes with Christians and Humanity here.
Stop the division.
Prince Charlie is always jumping in on the leftard/SJW/PC side of things.
This bit about anti-Christainism is just a fig leaf in an attempt to recover from his latest douchebaggery about the opposition to mass Muslim immigration being just like Nazi Germany.
Can he make up his damned, feeble mind? Gawd, this guy is a flake.
The Brits like Churchill are moving away.
Have a little faith baby
Brexit is a Yuge start!
Charles is just trying not to get thrown on the bonfire,but the course is clear
What would Princess Di say?
What about all those British Christian schoolgirls being raped and prostituted by islamic savages in your home town Chuck?
