Here’s where they’re dying the most, Folks. And it’s worse than you thought. It’s so bad for Christians across the world that Russia and Turkey don’t even show up on the radar any more. China, where you can die in labor camps (and thousands do) for the crime of attending a non-approved (Read: non-gov’t-controlled) Christian service, is only considered “Moderate Persecution.” One of the most severe persecutors is in the western hemisphere, and several of the very worst are among U.S. “allies.”
The Blaze talked to Dr. David Curry, CEO and president of Open Doors USA, on Thursday last week, and the interview was published here. The Open Doors USA organization ranks these 10 countries among the most brutal toward Christians.
Did you notice that 5 of the 10 are countries that the U.S. holds tremendous influence over? Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan should be under some pressure to be something other than brutally repressive toward Christians, one would think. How is that working out?
