Study Reveals Christians Are Persecuted In Over 130 Countries (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The persecution of Christians is expected to rise in 2014, according to a nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise awareness about Christian persecution and to offer pastoral and practical support to persecuted Christians around the world.  Release International has highlighted two challenging areas for Christians this year, said spokesperson Andrew Boyd. 

The first, he said, is “the continuing rise of Islamist persecution” in the form of militant groups that are seeking to change the governments within their countries and to take power, in particular, in Afghanistan and Nigeria, which are both set for elections this year. 

The second challenging area is the communist and post-communist world. Boyd identified North Korea to be the biggest concern. “North Korea has headed many organizations’ lists as the worst persecutor of Christians in the world for quite some time now,” he said. 

One of the most under reported stories in the Unted States.  You never hear about it much and that is for several reasons.  Christians are the majority in the US but not the mid-east and there is a sense of persecution even here in the US of Christians and not reporting this story could be a part of that maybe?  It is good at least that there i organizations out there to help Christians in their time of need.  -Mort

      The Lord of Hosts will soon be coming to the aid of Christians by purifying the earth with plasma lightning and laser storms during the Three Days of Darkness which, according to Holy Scripture, will take place during the reign of Antichrist.

      NASA’s Fermi Gamma-ray telescope has already proved that terrestrial thunderstorms are now emitting over 500 gamma-rays bursts per day, forming antimatter and particle beams nearly 3,000 miles long, and acting as particle accelerators (atom smashers.) NASA says nothing like this has ever been seen before.

      It is no coincidence that all this is starting to happen at a time when persecution against Christianity has suddenly broken out all around the world. The sins of men on earth are always met with a corresponding response in the sky. Anyone who sheds Christian blood will be visited by God’s wrath. As St. Paul said, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”

      “The persecution of Christians is expected to rise in 2014, according to a nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise awareness about Christian persecution…”

      Ground breaking, not… What did you expect them to come up with something different?

      It’s not nonprofit, claiming you are persecuted in a publicity campaign usually raises shed loads of donation money. All of which goes straight into church funds to buy the pastor/priest/vicar a new eg, mercedes benz and classed as profit.

      It’s no different than the fraudulent claims of Mother Teresa raising awareness and collecting money for lepers. When not a cent of the billions raised was spent on the lepers, all of it went into central Church funds.

      :wink:

        Some of the trillions the Church takes in was used by Pope Francis — when he was a Cardinal in Argentina — to pay for bus fare — which is how he traveled to work each day.

        Pix travels to work each day by slithering through the gutter of lies, bigotry and lunacy.

          “Some of the trillions the Church takes in was used by Pope Francis — when he was a Cardinal in Argentina — to pay for bus fare — which is how he traveled to work each day.”

          Sure, plus food, housing, clothing, etc etc. Along with millions of others all leeching a living off the back of peoples belief in the dark age superstitious codswallop they are preaching.

      Christianity equals hypocrisy, it’s responsible for unmentionable things being done to the indigenous worldwide to make them accept it as their religion and now people are talking about Christian persecution, seriously?

      • Archangel Michael

        Why, yes Betsy!
        They are right!

        It is REVENGE time on these “christians’, WORLD WIDE!
        And, like one of their famous Cardinals said before giving the “order’ to kill over 25,000 men women and children for “not converting”, We will just DO THEM ALL, and let their god “sort them out’!
        Can you feel the HATE christians???
        It is about to happen. IT IS REVENGE TIME!
        The “sins of your fathers” ARE ABOUT TO BE “PAID BACK A THOUSAND FOLD” on you unlucky SOB’s!
        But, you know how “Ponzi Schemes” end, the LAST IN (in this case YOU) “Lose Everything”!

        christians, TIMES UP!

      Yes, Christian persecution will escalate soon. No question about it. But Jesus promised that the “gates of hell shall not prevail against” the True Catholic Church. To this very day, they haven’t. We live in a time when we must always be prepared to die for Christ and for His Church. But our Blessed Mother has promised that an era of peace will be ultimately be granted to the world when the Pope and bishops finally consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart.

      God will never leave us without hope.

        “the “gates of hell shall not prevail against” the True Catholic Church.”

        That’s a fact. Why would the devil bother?

      • CastleFRC

        Maybe you didn’t realize that the gates of hell have ALREADY prevailed against what YOU call the “True Catholic Church.” The False Prophet currently resides in the Vatican. http://testimonyofthetwowitnesses.com/ANTIPOPE-Francis.php

      That’s more than half the countries in the world.

      And is it not incredible how far we’ve slipped, that our nation has been encouraging and aiding the likes of these psychotic persecutors, these murderers and church destroyers? Rather, singing praises to the “Arab Spring” movement? That this is not a front page story in terms of a human rights issue, in a nation many would purport as having Christian character, speaks volumes of us having at least one foot in hell. I suppose we’ll see where a broken moral compass leads, in a world that, despite all scoffers, depends upon the grace and goodwill of the Lord each hour, of each day. Interesting how most dogs wouldn’t bite the hand that feeds them.

      • JustAComment

        Would add the hypocrisy of it all, the vile stupidity, is just astounding. These degenerate, actually quite criminal, Muslims, who go into convulsions if somebody were to burn a Koran on YouTube, seem to be okay with persecution and murder of Christians, as well as arson of churches. By their very own logic and behavioral pattern, on what basis should a Muslim expect that their enemies should not feel free to do the same? How do you think Muslims would react if anybody campaigned against them with violence, solely for their religious beliefs, and engaged in arson of their holy sites? Do you also have a hunch these moral midgets can dish it out, but can’t take it?

      Just read the book “My Name used to be Mohommad” about a my journey from becoming an Islam Imam to becoming a christian. Very inspiring and a quick read.
