"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

Christianity (Catholics) is the World's most persecuted religion! And Islam is its main persecutor!

As reported by Catholic News Agency...

“The world’s two largest religious groups, Christians and Muslims, continued to be harassed in the most countries, and there was a notable increase in the number of countries in which Jews and adherents of folk religions were harassed,” the Pew Research Center said in a Feb. 26 report on trends in religion-related restrictions and hostilities.

Christian groups suffered social or government harassment in 102 countries in 2013, while Muslims faced similar problems in 99 countries. Jewish groups faced harassment in 77 countries, a seven-year high."
Mr. Paul Vallely, Chief Rabbi also confirmed this fact:

"...the plain fact is that Christians are languishing in jail for blasphemy in Pakistan, and churches are burned and worshippers regularly slaughtered in Nigeria and Egypt, which has recently seen its worst anti-Christian violence in seven centuries.

The most violent anti-Christian pogrom of the early 21st century saw as many as 500 Christians hacked to death by machete-wielding Hindu radicals in Orissa, India, with thousands more injured and 50,000 made homeless. In Burma, Chin and Karen Christians are routinely subjected to imprisonment, torture, forced labour and murder.

Persecution is increasing in China; and in North Korea a quarter of the country's Christians live in forced labour camps after refusing to join the national cult of the state's founder, Kim Il-Sung. Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and the Maldives all feature in the 10 worst places to be a Christian."

That includes Christians murdered by Muslims of Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, Jamaat Islamiah, ISIS, Abu Sayyaf, MILF, MNLF, Bangsamoro Fighters, heads chopped and bodies mutilated while Muslims harassment is due to their dirty bearded looks, and so far none of them was beheaded nor mutilated because they're Muslims. And thanks to the Muslim US President Barack Hussein Obama for doing nothing against Islamic extremists and Muslim terrorists!

Mr. Raymond Ibrahim, a Muslim converted to Christianity has enumerated some few incidents  among the many atrocities around the world where Muslims persecute (and even kill) Christians in the name of Islam!

Saudi Arabia: Religious police stormed a house in the province of al-Jouf, detaining more than 41 guests for, in the words of the police statement, “plotting to celebrate Christmas.” Meanwhile, despite Saudi Arabia being well documented for its religious hostility to all non-Muslims—the Grand Mufti himself recently called for the destruction of all churches in the Peninsula— just as a new “interreligious dialogue and tolerance,” funded by Saudi Arabia, was opened in Vienna. Sheikh Abdul Rahman al-Sudais, the imam of Mecca’s Grand Mosque, boasted: “The formation of this centre in the West with King Abdullah’s support gives a strong message that Islam is a religion of dialogue and understanding and not a religion of enmity, fanaticism and violence.” Yet Sudais himself has previously referred to Jews as “monkeys and pigs” and the “rats of the world,” and to Christians as “cross worshippers” and “those influenced by the rottenness of their ideas.”
Such a double-standard shown by Muslims when they live within our democratic countries!

Yes! Muslims persecute Christians, not because they dislike our appearances but because  they hate our religion:
Other Christian groups such as various Protestant sects, Born-Again groups, some Evangelical groups, Iglesia Ni Cristo®, Ang Dating Daan®, persecute Catholics
And  non-believers hate us for our strong stand against
Yes, we are the Christians who have been harassed and persecuted for more than 2,000 years now but still we grow by the millions every year. This is because WE ARE THE CHURCH! WE ARE CATHOLICS! And we are the ORIGINAL CHRISTIANS pronounced in Antioch to Rome and to the world!
