Rights of Religious Minorities (81335-C2-¶162.B)

Amend ¶162B by adding the following at the end:
We especially grieve for brothers and sisters in Christ who are persecuted around the world for their faith.  When one part of the Body of Christ suffers, the whole Body suffers.  We encourage prayers and advocacy on behalf of Christians who suffer because of government policies or societal attitudes.

Rationale

The current Social Principles make no mention of persecuted Christians, who number in the many millions around the world.
