What about the Christians?

I think I am right in saying that for the past fortnight both our print and broadcast media have been saturated with news on Afghanistan. I have started turning off the radio when the news comes on and skip certain pages of the newspaper! There is only so much one can take.

I think I have heard enough but one thing I have not heard about is the plight of the Christians in Afghanistan. What has happened to them? Everyone including the CofE is going on about women and girls right to education etc but no one is talking about the Christians there. They will probably be the most persecuted people even compared to the girls and women!

Surely the CofE must know this and furthermore not all countries will accept Christians as refugees.
