And the king answering, shall say to them, Verily I say to you, Inasmuch as ye did to one of these my brethren -- the least -- to me ye did

Never said it was a contest just highlighting an issue that is obviously not touched upon enough by WESTERN media.

The only Christians that I can think of that are persecuted are the Palestinian ones under Israeli oppression.

And Todd, sometimes, for not being a card-carrying member of St. Paul's fan club.

Well based on these few passages, Christians are indeed a minority, also, no need to get defensive people.

Luke 13:22-24
Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem.

Someone asked him, "Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?" He said to them,

"Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to.

Matthew 7:13

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

I honestly think this thread is ridiculous, especially seeing it is backed up with a youtube video.


Rohingya Muslims, Syrian Muslims. Chechnya Muslims. I can list dozens here.  Including "Muslim" countries from Saudi Arabia to Palestine.  

From the hijab being forbidden by law in France to fasting being forbidden in China to the good ol boys showing up at mosques with automatic weapons here in the states.

Imagine walking up to church and finding this waiting outside...

...which in fact happened at a mosque in Arizona.


Keep telling yourself how bad Christianity is "persecuted".

"My heart is at ease knowing that what was meant for me will never
miss me and that what misses me was never meant for me"

Iraq
In the land of Eden, Jonah and Daniel, Christians have shrunk from 1.5 million to 300,000.
We are being massacred and I don’t know how much further we can go,” a tearful Assyrian Christian activist told a packed audience at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. ISIS has systematically targeted religious minorities for murder and abduction and has auctioned off girls and women kidnapped from religious minority groups. It prices the youngest (ages one to nine) at 200,000 dinars/ USD $170.
The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) warns that the ongoing violence could “well mark the end of ... its ancient Yazidi and Christian communities.”
Syria
Only one percent of Syrian refugees in camps are Christians because “they fear negative repercussions from Sunni refugees identifying them with the regime.”
The Syrian Christian population has been decimated. According to The New York Times, by 2013, almost 25 percent (450,000) of Syria’s Christians had fled. The number of registered Syrian refugees then was 1,877,020. Today, it has more than doubled to 4,086,760, so if displacement rates have remained the same, more than 50 percent of the country’s Christian population may have become refugees.
Because of their fear of Muslim refugees, most Christians will not access the bulk of the $4 billion of U.S. assistance which is distributed through the UN.
Iran
The church in Iran is growing in the face of intense persecution.
In addition to Iranian-American Christian pastor Saeed Abedini, who is serving an eight-year term in prison for his faith, the Government has imprisoned at least 40 Christians for apostasy. The official charge is usually espionage or undermining national security. Ethnic Persians are by definition Muslim making almost all Christian activity illegal—from evangelism to publishing Scripture—especially in Persian.
India
The rise of a radical Hindu nationalist movement has led to brutal attacks on Christians, including pastors and nuns.  
Since the 2014 election of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, from the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Indian Christians have suffered increasing levels of persecution. In 2015, there was a rash of attacks on pastors, churches and Christian schools.  
Pakistan
Christians face the constant threat of mob violence due to “blasphemy” laws which can lead to the death sentence.  
In 2010, a Muslim co-worker charged a Christian woman, Asia Bibi, with “blaspheming” the Prophet Mohammad. While the Supreme Court put a temporary stay on her execution, Christians in Pakistan continue to face mob violence and imprisonment under the arbitrary terms of the blasphemy law and weak government protection for religious minorities.
Sudan
Christians face the death sentence for “apostasy.”
Last year, Christian woman Meriam Ibrahim was sentenced to death for “apostasy” after the Government refused to recognize her marriage to an American Christian man. Authorities imprisoned her when she was eight months pregnant, and she had to give birth to her second child in prison.
The government of Sudanese President Omar Bashir implements a harsh form of Sharia law, demolishes churches, bombs Christian communities and killsChristians with impunity.
Nigeria
Hundreds of thousands of Christians are facing massacre by radical Islamic terror group Boko Haram.
Nigeria is deeply divided between a Muslim majority in the North and a predominantly Christian population in the South. In the North, terrorist group Boko Haram seeks to expel all Christians from the area. Its atrocities include: slaughtering over 2,000 Christians, kidnapping 200 girls in the Christian town of Chibok, bombing Christian churches, and inciting terror by kidnapping and murdering Christians.
China
China’s Communist government has imprisoned Christian human rights lawyers representing “house churches” and their leaders. One lawyer, Zhang Kai was arrested and sentenced to six months in a “black jail” for representing numerous churches whose crosses had been forcibly removed by the government.
In Zhejiang province, the government removed an estimated 1,500 crosses from both government-sanctioned churches and house churches. In some cases, the government destroyed the churches themselves.
Democratic Republic of North Korea (DPRK)
Tens of thousands of Christians are enslaved in labor camps for their faith.
North Korea is one of the most dangerous places on earth for Christians. Anyone who practices Christianity is subject to arrest, torture, imprisonment, labor camps and death. The North Korean government classifies families based on their expressions of loyalty to the state and places Christian families at the bottom of society.
Crimea
Only 1 percent of Ukrainian religious organizations succeeded in re-registering after the Russian invasion.
Russian authorities and the Russian Orthodox Church are suspicious of “the political reliability” of indigenous churches. There are reports of pro-Russian militias targeting indigenous Ukrainian Christians for kidnapping, torture and murder. Indigenous leaders report surveillance from the security services and questioning by Russian security officers.
