As we remain committed to protecting religious liberties across the country, it is important to remember that there are millions of believers around the globe who face life-threatening persecution on a daily basis.
It’s not surprising then, to discover that a record amount of Christians—as many as 7,000—were executed for their faith last year, according to an annual report by Open Doors USA. The number reflects a 50% increase over the worst previous year and the highest number since statistics have been tracked.
The following were the worst countries for religious persecution against Christians:
- North Korea: 70,000 Christians are imprisoned.
- Iraq: Christians are targeted for genocide.
