Friday, January 12, 2018

(Worthy News) - About 215 million Christians are being persecuted due to their faith, according to a report released by the Open Doors organization Wednesday. This represents 1 in 12 Christians worldwide.

The most dangerous place to be a practicing Christian is in North Korea. There is also a high level of persecution against Christians in the Palestinian Territories, the World Watch List report showed.

Released by the Open Doors organization, the list is an annual report on the global persecution of Christians ranking the top 50 countries where Christians are persecuted due to their faith. Released at the beginning of each year, the list uses data from Open Doors field workers and external experts to quantify and analyze persecution worldwide. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]

  1. Are they counting Catholics? Or not?

    It makes a difference.

    Also, what does the author of this article mean by "Palestinian Territories"?
    Reality would strongly suggest it means the Arab nations near and around Palestine (not in the State of Israel) also. So, the term using the term in this is confusing. Would logic not included Syria considering the vast amounts killed by ISIS?
