Candice Bergen (Canadian politician)A longtime pro-family activist is praising a Canadian member of Parliament for speaking out about Christian persecution in front of fellow legislators.

OneNewsNow reported in an April 30 story that MP Candice Bergen used the horrific Easter morning bombings in Sri Lanka to remind her colleagues in a floor speech that Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world.

“They’re targeted by Islamic extremists in countries like Pakistan, Iran, and Nigeria,” she said, “and by communist regimes in China and North Korea.”

Bergen, a member of the Conservative Party, holds the title of Opposition House Leader.

Her floor speech caught the attention of Dr. Charles McVety, president of Canada Christian College, who says she wasn’t afraid to use the words “radical Islam” to describe the terrorists.

“And our prime minister refuses to state the truth,” says McVety, “when radical Islam is butchering Christians.”

Continuing her speech, Bergen went on to describe “subtle persecution” in the West that includes mocking Christians who believe the Bible’s account of creation, including ridicule from political leaders who represent Christians.
