  • David Warren introduces us to"Canada's longest serving political prisoner," "a grandmother, age 62," who "has agreed to suffer herself, for evils in which she did not participate," who shines as "a beacon of light in a very dark world" — Beacon.

  • She is not alone, as this "hard-hitting report" "highlighting human rights abuses against Christians around the world" suggests — 75% of rights abuses ‘aimed at Christians’. "That equates to around 100,000 people facing persecution."
