I'd like to preface this statement with "This is merely my opinion", that said I think that when most poeple think about the most persecuted Religion in the World today they think about Islam. And while it's very true that Islam is under fire for a myriad of reasons, there is one Religion in today's world that in sheer numbers and atrocities is by far, hugely, the single most persecuted Religion of our entire world - Christianity.
Now if I were you, I would be scoffing perhaps, rolling my eyes maybe or even furiously opening multiple google tabs to find what preposterous proof there was to support this statement...and I honestly hope you do...look it up that is. I, like many of you reading this, was shocked to see it headlined during a random search for information of the Religious nature...and even I didn't believe it when I saw it. To me, Christianity has always "Seemed" like the pinnacle of Religion in the Western world...to me if any Religion was favored or had an unfair advantage it would be Christianity for certain. Upon researching the supposed idea of Christians being the most persecuted of all Religious followers I discovered not only was I horribly blind but that the reality was always right there in front of me. I had developed what's called "Normalcy Bias" on a small scale, an inability to see what's in front of me simply because I expect things to be a certain way. That said I would provide the following as supporting evidence and request critical evaluation and subsequent discussion of the topic. For myself though, this is more of an awareness post which doesn't necessarily beg a debate but any opposition is welcome.https://www.msn.com/en-sg/news/world/christians-the-most-persecuted-group-in-world-for-second-year-study/ar-BBxZeVshttp://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/04/14/christians-most-persecuted-group-in-world-as-vicious-attacks-grow.htmlhttps://aleteia.org/2017/03/03/christians-are-the-worlds-most-persecuted-religious-group-according-to-studies/http://www.civitas.org.uk/pdf/Shortt_Christianophobia.pdf
What's really mind-blowing...I mean absolutely shocking is that I have never...ever...e v e r heard about this before and it's not new. What's even worse is that Christians seem to be dealing with the persecution the way they always have...allowing themselves to become martyrs and praying that it will stop. It's sad that it's the only way.
