Iraq, Afghanistan Top Christian Persecution List

As reported at Christianity Today, Open Doors’ World Watch List details

the top 50 countries “where Christians face the most persecution,” aiming to create “effective anger” on believers’ behalf.

Alongside North Korea, Syria, and Iran are two notables:

#3: Iraq

#5: Afghanistan

Of 50 countries worldwide that rank high in persecution of Christians, two were under the complete control, direct influence, and tutelage of the United States for many recent years.

More than 4,000 US troops died installing and protecting governments who top the list of nations persecuting Christians.

Not exactly something to celebrate.
