Christians more discriminated against than Muslims

 

In a new Pew survey just released, it gives the statistics index over several years on religious discrimination and freedom around the world. One thing stood out. (… my conclusion)

“Christians,” the survey reports, “were harassed by government officials or organisations in 95 countries in the year ending in mid-2010 and by social groups or individuals in 77 countries.

“Muslims also were more likely to be harassed by governments (74 countries) than by social groups or individuals (64 countries). Jews, by contrast, experienced social harassment in many more countries than they faced government harassment.”

It stated an uptick in the US of “religious intolerance” along with a worldwide rise. And it says this comes amid findings that “people around the world are becoming more religious”.
