Send money to fight against blessings!

Someone linked this page on Facebook and I thought it was odd: Fight Christian Persecution. The page urges you to send money to the American Center for Law and Justice so they can oppose persecution. What does Scripture say about persecution?

"Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you." (Matthew 5:11-12)

So if Jesus says that we are blessed when we are persecuted and that indeed being persecuted is a sign of faithfulness, should we form organizations and donate money to them to fight against the sign of blessing?
