Christians around the world are facing ever-increasing violence and hatred, according to a recent report that claims more Christians are being persecuted than in recent years.

Africa and Asia continue to be hotspots for violence against Christians, but since the Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade, American Christians are purportedly dealing with levels of hatred that have rarely been seen in the United States, according to ZeroHedge.

Open Doors released its World Watch List on February 2, which posited that more than 365 million Christians face persecution globally. The worst offenders are North Korea and Somalia, with Libya, China, and several Arab nations ranking in the top half of the list. Communist North Korea and China view Christianity as a threat to the party, according to the report.

While not appearing on Open Door’s World Watch List, there have been a growing number of anti-Christian incidents in the United States.

In 2022, Tucker Carlson wrote in an opinion piece for Fox News that left-wing groups harassed Christians after the Supreme Court decision that determined abortion was not a constitutionally protected medical procedure. He highlighted hateful messages sent to Catholic churches from a group called Ruth Sent Us. While the group is primarily focused on protesting right-leaning judges on the Supreme Court, it has openly expressed disgust for Catholicism writ large.

“Stuff your rosaries and your weaponized prayer. We will be burning the Eucharist to show our disgust for the abuse Catholic churches have condoned for centuries,” one message from the group read.

The Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe, which reports on alleged hate crimes in Europe, Central Asia, and the United States, claims that Jehovah’s Witnesses are the most at-risk Christian group globally.

“Reports have also indicated that graffiti and vandalism against places of worship, the desecration of cemeteries, and arson attacks against churches are some of the more common types of crimes motivated by bias against Christians,” the group reports.

Some of the worst examples of hate against Christians in Africa come from Nigeria, the continent’s most populous country. Despite rampant reports of slayings of Christians, Secretary of State Antony Blinken removed Nigeria from a list of nations that tolerate religious persecution.

“It’s a victory for the terrorists — it’s a defeat for anyone concerned with human rights and religious freedom,” said Frank Wolf, a former Republican congressman who led efforts to combat religious hatred. The Wolf Amendment, named for the former congressman, prohibits NASA from using taxpayer money to bilaterally cooperate with China due to that nation’s persecution of Christians and other religious members.
