The USA For The First Time is Among The 12 Worst Christian Persecution Nations – Watchdog Group

  See Comments   Region:

In an unbelievable turn of events, the ‘christian nation’ that was the USA has now made the list of the 12 worst Christian Persecution Nations.


“We felt it was very important this year that we highlight three countries where religious discrimination and persecution are deemed unusual but have reached a certain threshold of concern. These are Mexico, Russia, and sadly, the United States,” explained in a press release Jeff King, president of International Christian Concern.

While conditions in the US are in no way comparable to other countries on the list, a certain segment of the culture and the courts seem to be intent on driving faith out of the public square. There have been too many court cases with bad decisions to miss the clear trend line.”

The ICC report divides the 12 countries into three categories. Nigeria, Iraq and Syria were listed among “the worst of the worst” countries for Christians, due largely to the rise of Islamic extremism and the ongoing terror attacks throughout these nations.

The United States of America just made the hall of shame, what say you reader?
