Persecution of Christians has intensified in 20 nations
October 18, 2013
Over the past two years, the persecution of Christians has worsened in 20 nations, according to a new report published by Aid to the Church in Need.
“In the period under review, 2011–2013, violence and intimidation became more serious for Christians; in 20 of the 30 countries assessed, the situation worsened,” the report found.
“In others where the problems were already extreme, there has been little or no change.”
“Christianity, the world’s most persecuted religion, now risks being wiped out in countries where until recently it has been well established,” the report continued. “Oppression and exodus now threaten Christianity’s status as a worldwide religion.”
