Christians continue to face widespread persecution across the world as governments and Muslims seek to wreck genocide on them, according to a new report.
A report by Aid to the Church in Need released a report entitled, “Persecuted and Forgotten? A Report On Christians Oppressed For Their Faith 2020-22,” which shows that Christians face genocidal pressures in at least 18 nations.
Indeed, the group discovered that persecution against Christians has soared 75 percent.
Per Just the News:
In Africa, “extremism threatens previously strong Christian communities,” the report states. “In Nigeria and other countries, this violence clearly passes the threshold of genocide.”
The report also found that Christians are experiencing genocide in Ethiopia’s Tigray region and in North Korea.
“Religious nationalism and authoritarianism intensified problems for the faithful – including the Taliban’s return to power in Afghanistan, which prompted Christians and other minorities to attempt a desperate scramble to escape,” the report said.
Christians are not only killed, but in some areas they are detained on blasphemy charges or kidnapped and forced into marriages, the report found.
“The suffering Church needs people to speak out for us,” the Rev. Andrew Adeniyi Abayomi wrote in the report.
Christians face serious pressure all around the world. And while they certainly don’t face genocide here in the U.S., we have an entire political party called the Democrats that want Christians oppressed.
