9 of 10 most dangerous countries to be a Christian are Muslim

Open Doors USA is an organization based in Santa Ana, California, which has been monitoring persecution of Christians across the world since the 1970s. (To read more about its methodology and ranking, go here.)
Open Doors released its “2016 World Watch List” to reveal the world’s most dangerous countries for Christians — where Christians face threats, discrimination, kidnapping, violence and death from the government or extremist groups.

Mexico, the 40th most dangerous country in the world for Christians, really surprised me. The country is 93% Christian, good grief!
Here’s a map of the most dangerous places in the world to be a Christian:
most dangerous countries for Christians 2016Open Doors USA notes the following as some significant trends in the 2016 World Watch List:

  • The most rapidly growing area of persecution is in the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia.
  • Islamic extremist self-styled caliphates have expanded their spheres of operation across international borders.
  • Governments became more fearful of Islamic extremism and responded by either (a) boosting nationalism as a counter-force or (b) tightening regulations and increasing surveillance over all religious expression.
  • Muslims throughout the world are becoming more Islamic out of fear that extremists may take over their areas and that Islamic State (ISIS) sleeper cells may wake.
  • More states are lawless, with minorities suffering at the hands of violent groups.

Since we are not getting any help in the area of Christianity by our leadership – we must continue the good fight against this perverted religion called Islam. Until they realize that all religions are working toward the goal of good versus evil and share the goal that there are more religions besides Islam – peace will never be achieved.

The New World Order has had its boost, or at least its cheerleading, from Obama. And now it has a witting (and intellectually stupid) ally in—Jorge Bergoglio.
It is going to get ugly in the years to come. Really REALLY UGLY.

I found myself most perplexed that “Mexico” is listed as having been newly added to this list, and it leaves me wondering why. I would assume that Mexico is predominantly Catholic. Is the murder of Christians in Mexico due to the drug cartels? If so, is this just a general statistic due to the fact that most Mexicans are Christian. This is extremely sad, and foreshadows the continuing down spiral in morals and righteousness. This brings up the question . . . do we really want increased transplants from Mexico coming to the United States?

It can probably be said that the majority of ALL murders in Mexico is related to the Drug Cartels.There’s really only ONE reason for bringing more Mexicans across our Border-Political Correctness. NONE of their other reasons hold up to objective scrutiny.

wouldn’t be surprised if those drug cartels were run by the CIA, how else to flood mexicans into the usa to upset the demographics, get cheap illegal labor, increase the dependency on government, drain the economy and register new “voters”? all of which are anti-conservative moves

sorry my english not good. in my country religious discrimination depends on people of different religions ratio and whether or not radical islamic groups present in certain areas. a region with majority of christians or another religions other than islam will be peaceful and tolerant. if the ratio between christians/other religions and moslem are even, its still peacefull but there are little tensions here and there. but if moslems are the majority in a region, the radicals will demand sharia law and government will give it up to them. at best there will be discriminations to christians/other religions and at… Read more »

I believe the United States could easily be added to the list, printed in green, if you prefer…..
In the current United States, it is hazardous to your health to be:

A believer in the Rights listed in the Constitution
Knowledgeable in the history of this country
Skeptical of ‘Global Warming caused by human activity’
Distrustful of the current fascist regime in Washington
