Top 10 Non-Religious Countries Hostile to Christians: Pew
An extensive study of the nations of the world and their individual relationships with religion has found that Islam is the world's most common state religion, and listed the 10 non-religious nations that are hostile toward Christianity and other religious institutions.
Pew Research Center released on Tuesday a study of 199 countries and self-administering territories, based on data for the year ending Dec. 31, 2015. It found that the majority of the world's countries do not have an official or a preferred religion.
Overall, 22 percent of the total, or 43 nations, had a state religion, with 27, or 63 percent of those following Islam.
Thirteen states had Christianity as their official religion, along with two for Buddhism, and one for Judaism....
Phillip, I think the term, "nominal Christian" should be used. Now of course these nominal Christians are preferable to Muslims, and your example of Saudi Arabia is an excellent one. However, a Christian, and he doesn't really even have to know what the Protestant Reformation was, because unfortunately the Orthodox world never had one, but still an actual Christian has to recognize http://tinyurl.com/guqmzv6 (What are the ‚Äúfive solas,‚ÄĚ and what do they mean?). It's a Biblical definition of a Christian no matter if he has the label of Protestant or not.
Adriel, countries with a strong Catholic/Anglican tradition are weak on Christianity, I would think just about every country that had a state church no matter what variety it is, is weak on Christianity.
Again the Romish Church and the Orthodox Church isn't far behind with the Anglican apparently bringing up the rear should be noted for hostility to Christianity, as organizations are actually anti-Christian.
While there is some truth in this article, it could have gone much further. For instance, why didn't they mention that just recently in Syria, yes Syria, the newly elected pariament speaker is Christian. Why didn't they mention that one of the most hostile nations against Christianity on the face of the planet is Saudi Arabia. Yes, that country who we keep sending billions to and of whom the warmongers, neocons and bigwigs down at the IMC love to get cozy with. Yes I know, mentioning some of these things would have exposed America's Foreign Policy for what it really is, straight from hell. Hate to say this, but you need to add the good'ol USofA to the list of countries hostile to Christians.
Western nations are moving towards a discrimination towards Christianity, such as America and Britain. They maintain an official pretense of acceptance and religious freedom, but underneath it all there is a growing insidious prejudice and even bigotry to all things Bible and Christian. We can also observe this in collective organisations such as the UN and the EU.
The one religion which has become acceptable in western nations is satanic Liberalism used in denominations such as the Anglican/Episcopalian, PCUSA, United Methodist, ELCA, Aliance of Baptists and many other Liberalist sodomite condoning false witnesses.
Therefore if you are a "church(?)" who rejects the Bible then you will be accepted by the reprobates in the nations.
