Skip to comments.Religious freedom at risk in one of five countries: report
Posted on 11/22/2018 6:03:16 PM PST by Olog-hai
Religious freedom is under threat in one of every five nations around the globe, in part because of an increase in aggressive ultranationalism, a Catholic NGO said in a report Thursday.
Aid to the Church in Need found incidents of religious persecution in 21 countries in the two years to June 2018, including Niger, Myanmar, India and China. Acts of discrimination were reported in 17 other countries such as Algeria, Turkey and Russia, it said.
It was the 14th edition of the aid groups report covering all religions in 196 countries, carried out every two years with the assistance of independent journalists.
Weve observed a trivialization of attacks on religious freedom, said Marc Fromager, head of the NGOs French chapter, at a press conference in Paris.
Of the 38 countries where freedom is threatened, he said the situation has worsened in 18 of them, in particular, in two of the most populous countries in the world: China and India.
This hostility toward minorities has worsened to the point that we can qualify this as aggressive ultranationalism, he said.

The left really does believe the destruction of words to be a beautiful thing. Never mind the construction of fake words to replace them.

Islam is a war plan.

But it’s funny the phrases they make up to scare people.
