Does the Western media cover the persecution of Christians? Almost never. But Christians faced increased persecution around the world from 2020 to 2022, according to the Catholic group Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) International. North Korea and Nigeria are particularly dangerous for Christians, according to the recent report.
ACN announced Persecuted and Forgotten? A Report on Christians oppressed for their Faith 2020-22 in November, saying the report showed that “JIHADISTS and nationalists are driving increased persecution of Christians around the world.” Included under “nationalists” is the authoritarian North Korean regime, which is the worst persecutor of Catholics in Asia, according to the ACN press release. Another dangerous country is India, which had “710 incidents of anti-Christian violence between January 2021 and the start of June 2022.” And over 7,600 Christians were killed in Nigeria alone.
The press release did not highlight China, which has also stepped up its persecution of Christians in recent years, according to Persecution.org. ACN did highlight Nigeria, which was arguably the most dangerous place in the world to be Christian in 2021 due to radical Islamic violence. JihadWatch covered a report in January saying that a record-breaking 360 million Christians had been persecuted globally in 2021, with almost 6,000 Christians killed for their faith. Eight out of ten Christians killed were reportedly from Nigeria. Yet Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán was one of the very few world leaders to speak out against the persecution of Christians at the time.
