 Jan 9 - ‘Extreme Persecution’: 50 Worst Countries to Live in if You’re a Christian
topic by KFrizzle - 01-09-2013, 12:28 PM


Christianity is the majority religion in the United States, so it’s easy for believers to take for granted the rights they so regularly enjoy. From praying and worshipping in public to attending Sunday worship services, practice of one’s faith is generally accepted — even encouraged — in America.

But this isn’t the case in many other nations, in which religion, itself, is banned or where one faith system is permitted and touted, with all others being continually denigrated. In many localities, Christians (not to mention people who subscribe to other, non-majority faith systems) are systematically targeted, mistreated and, in extreme cases, k!lled because of their theological views.

A map that shows concentrations of Christian persecution across the globe:

Open Doors USA recently released its annual “World Watch List,” a ranking of 50 countries that exposes the places Christians are most persecuted across the globe. According to the organization, which works to deliver the gospel to believers in troubled areas, the list includes individuals in all Christian denominations within an entire nation. And rather than focusing upon economic, political, ethnic or social persecution, the rankings only include faith-based affliction.

Here’s a video describing the 2013 “World Watch List”:




The top 50 countries that are listed are labeled with varying levels of concern. From “extreme persecution” on the high end to “sparse persecution” on the low end, a brief description of the conditions for Christians on the ground is given for each of the listed nations (read about the methodology here).

The first 11 countries listed are all labeled “extreme” in terms of the level of persecution that Christians within their boundaries encounter. Once again, North Korea captured the organization’s top spot, with Open Doors providing the following description of the dire conditions there:
For the eleventh year running, this is the most difficult place on earth to be a Christian. One of the remaining Communist states, it is vehemently opposed to religion of any kind. Christians are classified as hostile and face arrest, detention, torture, even public execution. There is a system of labour camps including the renowned prison No. 15, which reportedly houses 6,000 Christians alone. But despite severe oppression, there is a growing underground church movement of an estimated 400,000 Christians.
Here’s the list of the 11 most Christian unfriendly countries:


And here’s the larger list of 50 nations that qualify as having at least mild level of Christian persecution:
To see the complete report and to read the details for each country, visit the “World Watch List” web site.

maybe you should look up perennial

im not saying that christians dont ever get persecuted, but every time i see one these "struggle" articles, they try to make it seem as if christians are the only ones who get persecuted and act as if they havent done the lion's share of persecution against others in history

discrimination against muslims in this country is high, we just have a strong enough legal\social infrastructure that that prevents people from k!lling them on the regular

but muslims get attacked all the time in the US, get your head out of your a$s

you think the same psycho-fundamentalists christian rednecks who used to hang blacks from trees on the regular, wouldnt do the same to muslims and other religions if they could get away with it

the #### that happened at that sikh temple this past summer would be happening way more often

1. i know that not all Christians are characterized by my description, but im pointing out that there is a population of christian people who would do crazy ####, if they could

2. i already mentioned how our infrastructure disallows crazy violence of that magnitude like that to happen on the regular, so why are you even bringing up all these examples?

just because the actions dont occur, doesnt mean the ideological foundations and sentiments dont exist. but of course, a jingoist like you thinks that Americans are above all reproach

everyone who doesnt exactly agree with everything you say is a "typical liberal"

1. but they aren't doin it... even if it was like you said that "they would if they could"
you got zero evidence... of any Christian group/gov. persecuting others... Like the example i showed...

2. the examples were so u could understand persecution... since you think we are doin it in the US...

and again stop grouping Christians as haters or racist... Yes there are individuals, but it's not a christian value... if it were, n you were speaking truth, you would see groups (not some random individual) of Christians going against others, like the examples i showed you :)



No typical liberals call names those they disagree wit... do you not read anything i say??
like u did agian, w/ jingoist

persecution isnt just limited to b0mbing and ####, thats just the extreme end of that spectrum.

and of course all Christians are not haters or racists

but the same can be said for Muslims, but of course you would contest that, based on the actions of a few extremists

overall, im just saying that the hands of Christians are nowhere near clean, so theres no point in BSing

christians k!lling muslims:

The violence began Monday in Jos, a city on the volatile dividing line between Nigeria's largely Christian south and Muslim north. A group of rioters on Monday attacked Muslims praying over the end of Ramadan in a primarily Christian neighborhood, using knives, machetes and bows and arrows, Nigeria's National Emergency Management Agency said. At least four people died Monday, as witnesses said more than 50 vehicles and 100 motorcycles were set ablaze during the f!ghting.


just because the western media under reports it, doesnt mean it doesnt happen

unfortunately we see this way to much... in history n modern age...
Religions k!lling each other...

and given that nigeria is #13 on the list for christians, i can easily see them f!ght back...
who knows who started it tho... started in year 0001, ya know...

The government of Plateau state, where Jos is the capital, is controlled by Christian politicians who have blocked Muslims from being legally recognized as citizens.
^^ was a really bad region... and a bit dated, but served the point ^^
