Christophobia is the fear or loathing of Christ and His followers. The cause of the hatred of Christ and His followers varies among people, but the majority of anti-Christian sentiment is held by atheists, communists and Muslims. In the West Christophobic persecution usually does not involve violence, though violence has occurred. The recent killer at the Virginia Tech campus made several anti-Christian remarks. Most persecution of Christians in the West involves intolerance and insults. In other parts of the world, predominantly Muslim countries and China, Christophobic violence is a frequent occurrence. Many attacks happen in Turkey, such as the attack in April 2007. Three members of a Bible publishing house had their throats slit. Many other horrible attacks against Christians occur, such as the recent beheading of three school girls in Indonesia.
