Why Christianity is the Most Persecuted Faith in Earth

Posted: Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

Approximately 90,000 Christians were murdered for their faith in 2016 worldwide, making them the most persecuted religious group in the world, according to The Center for Studies on New Religions.

Up to 80% of all acts of religious discrimination are perpetrated against Christians and 90% of all people killed for their religious beliefs are Christians.
