The Christian Post website reports today (March 26, 2011) that 75 percent of religious persecution in the world is against Christians, based upon a new report by a UK Catholic organization.
The British branch of Aid to the Church in Need -- which examined 33 countries -- reported that most of the persecution was occurring in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia in its 2011 "Persecuted and Forgotten? A Report on Christians Oppressed for their Faith."
Besides the usual suspects -- China, Iran, North Korea, and Saudi Arabia -- the report reveals that countries such as Venezuela, Zimbawe, and even the Holy Land are guilty of religious persecution.
The report also says that today 100 million Christians worldwide are facing persecution.
