    That said, the scope and scale of real anti-Christian violence around the world is nonetheless staggering.

    In North Korea and Eritrea, tens of thousands of Christians languish in what amount to concentration camps for religious prisoners. In Nigeria, Christians face a growing menace from the radical Boko Haram movement. In Iraq, a once-thriving Christian community that can trace its roots back to the early centuries of the faith has been decimated. In India, poor Christians who often belong to the “untouchables” in the old caste system are routinely harassed by radical Hindus, suffering a violent attack at a rate of once every other day.

    The high-end estimate for the number of Christians killed for their faith each year is around 100,000, while the low end is a few hundred. That works out to somewhere between one new Christian martyr every hour, if the higher figure is to believed, and one every day.

    That was a poor troll attempt. We have higher standards these days.

    Lot of truth to this. People in the US and Canada often lose sight of conditions in other parts of the world.

    Snark aside, it's incidents like this that make me so irritated when Christians in the US start screaming "persecution!" Christians in the United States aren't persecuted, they're just butthurt

    I think many Americans could get behind this.
