    According to Cardinal Donald Wuerl one Christian is killed every hour in the world which comes to about 9,000 a year just for practicing their faith. I assume most of the killings are by Islamic jihadists, but why this hatred unless they are identifying Christianity with the West?

    Christian persecution is a worldwide phenomenon, noted the Washington archbishop.

    “Reports suggest that about 200 million Christians around the world are at risk of physical violence, arrest, torture, even death simply because they live and practice a faith that is not acceptable to the rulers in that part of the world,” he pointed out.

    “The journalist John Allen recently estimated that, this is a quote, the number of Christians killed for religious reasons is ‘roughly one every hour, 365 days a year,’” added the cardinal.

    That amounts to about 9,000 Christians killed per year, which is consistent with a study by the Turin-based Center for Studies on New Religions (CESNUR).

    Analysts, including Open Doors, have deemed Christians the most persecuted group in the world.

    Nevertheless, the persecution report says, “Christian responses to persecution are almost always nonviolent and, with very few exceptions, do not involve acts of terrorism.”

    Last year, the American government acknowledged that the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) had been committing genocide against Christians and other ethnoreligious minorities in the Middle East.

    Echoing members of the ethnoreligious minority groups victimized by ISIS, Cardinal Wuerl said nothing changed for the persecuted Christians following the genocide declaration.

    9000 Christians per 200 million is about 0.0045%

    16,000 Americans are murdered in the US each year; out of 300 million is about 0.0053%

    So it is 1.2 times more dangerous to be an American in America, than a Christian.

    It depends on how dumb he is. Does he go around bragging about his Israeli passport in Iran?

    Neither advertising their faith are Christians, and yet they are thought out to be killed. An endangered spices they are indeed.

    That's 8760 christisans per year. I think that many muslims are killed in a month.
    I bet more than 8760 non muslim or non christians are killed every year also.

    What is important is to understand the motivation: This is more of the warriors for Christ crap.

    They are trying to make Christians sound like victims so they are will want a war with Islam. Christians like this want a holy war. They want mysticism guiding national policy. They want reasons to hate.

    That doesn't say much for the intelligence of the Iranians. What Golda Meir said almost five decades ago still holds true today and in fact the Arabs, or Muslims, have recently added Christians to their long list of enemies. Of course the atheists will suffer as well.

    Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.- Golda Meir

    More like Brietbart preaching to the choir who could care less how many Muslims or non-Christians are killed every month.

    CHRISTIANS ARE BEING PERSECUTED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD!!!

    Didn't you get the memo?

    It is a numbers game where all perspective is lost - a typical tactic used by charlatans.

    In fact Christians are the victims. Why not try some research before commenting? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genocide_of_Christians_by_ISIL

    Depends what one wants to be informed on or uniformed on.
    If you want what's going on in the world, one chooses reliable news sources.
    If one wants to hear what they believe, they choose talk radio, breitbart, or faux. But it seems faux is not nutty enough anymore.

    What is your point here? Is it your way of trying to explain away the genocide of Christians?

    There were have been other times in human history when people were comfortable with genocide and it seems to be happening again.

    No one is happy with genocide. I am saying ISIS would like genocide of Kurds and Shiite muslims. They are not just targeting christians as the OP and you are trying to portray.
    Like christians are only being persecuted.

    And I see a great many posts in these forums where genocide of muslims would be appreciated.

    Are those your only sources? Even Hillary Clinton felt there was enough evidence so perhaps she gets her info from Breitbart also. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news...s-huge-to-some-voters/?utm_term=.7e39ce0d6b28

    Muslims are certainly murdering Muslims but the US, as an example, is accused of meddling when they try to put a stop to it. So the idea now seems to be that Muslims can continue murdering Muslims, if that's what their religion calls for, but to leave others out of it. But of course they can't do that as their religion calls for the murder of 'Infidels'. Their hatreds run long and deep, as we know.

    Also, you seem to think that it's only in the Middle East where Christians are being murdered. Not so. Check out what's going on in Nigeria and Pakistan. https://www.thereligionofpeace.com/attacks/christian-attacks.aspx

    The US Democratic Party. Are you saying she was wrong, that she actually had no evidence?
