Christians most persecuted religion

Much of the current worldwide persecution of Christians is within the USA.  One of the reasons for the attacks is the pro-life movement.

Hopefully, with Donald Trump as Commander-in-Chief, there will be a reversal of this trend, which has been on the rise during Obama’s terms of office.

 

Christians remain the target of more persecution than any other group in the world, according to a new study set to be released in February from the Italian-based Center for Studies on New Religions.

These findings are consistent with those of the Clarion Project, an organization that tracks Islamic extremism.  The group’s national security analyst told Fox News that the U.S. government is doing very little to stem this tide of hate.

“U.S. policy has not had a strategy for specifically addressing the persecution of Christians,” said Ryan Mauro.  “For example, very few people are even aware that Iraqi Christians began organizing to defend themselves and needed our help.”

The report outlines the stark data of persecution, finding that 90,000 Christians around the world died for their faith in 2016. One-third of these fatalities were a direct result of Islamic extremists, like ISIS, while other believers perished as a result of the hostile policies of anti-Christian states like North Korea.
