Prince Charles calls for coexistence in speech on persecuted Christians

Guardian: Prince Charles has made a strong plea for coexistence and understanding between people of different faiths, saying extremism and division are not inevitable.

The prince delivered a reflection on the dire situation for Christian minorities, particularly in the Middle East where many have been forced to flee their homes, during a special service at Westminster Abbey on Tuesday.

He said: “[I have met] many Christians who, with such inspiring faith and courage, are battling oppression and persecution, or who have fled to escape it. Time and again, I have been deeply humbled and profoundly moved by the extraordinary grace and capacity for forgiveness that I have seen in those who have suffered so much.”
