9 of the 10 top worst countries for Christian persecution are Muslim

62

North Korea (a thirty-million-man gulag) and nine Muslim countries. What do these oppressive, totalitarian, savage countries have in common? Everything.

The silence of the West is unforgivable. The inhumanity reflects the power, the choke-hold the left wing has on the West’s most powerful and influential institutions. But if we continue to work, share information, and educate those around us, we will be able to defeat these enemies of freedom and truth.

North Korea is worst place for Christian persecution, group says

By Kimberly Winston, Religious News Service | January 10, 2018

For the 16th year in a row, North Korea tops the list of 50 countries ranked for the worst persecution of Christians in the world, according to the Christian watchdog organization Open Doors USA.

A close second is Afghanistan, which jumped up one place since last year’s ranking. With the exception of North Korea, all the countries that cracked the top 10 are predominantly Muslim and most are in the Middle East and Africa.

“Open Doors exists to support and to advocate for persecuted Christians where ever they may be in the world,” Open Doors USA’s CEO and president, David Curry, said in announcing the list in Washington on Wednesday (Jan. 10). “We are asking that the world begin to use its power and its influence to push for justice, that we would use the list to direct us where justice is needed most in the world today.”

Curry also highlighted three trends Open Doors identifies as persecution against Christians — the rise of “rogue agencies” such as the Islamic State group and the North Korean government; “Islamic extremism”; and actions such as rape and forced marriage.

The list is compiled annually by Open Doors, whose researchers assign a point value to incidents of persecution — forced conversions, attacks on churches, arrests, etc. Open Doors has published its list for 26 years.
