Christians are being exterminated in some parts of the world.

Christians are enduring genocide in some parts of the world, particularly in Asia and Africa. Political correctness is to blame for the global neglect of this threat. 

Christian persecution is often overlooked, yet Christians are the most persecuted group in the world, according to a new report.

LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - According to a report from the British Foreign Office, Christians are "by far the most persecuted" religious group in the world. Christians face substantial persecution in Africa and Asia. In the Middle East, the ancient cradle of Christianity, Christians are being forced out of communities that have occupied since the first century AD. 

Notable persecutions are taking place from Syria to China and the Philippines. In Africa, Christians face persecution in Zimbabwe, North Nigeria, and Egypt. Persecution has also been reported in Iraq and India, and in North Korea, although the number of Christians in the DPRK is small --precisely because of persecution. 

Christians face global persecution, although most of it is low-grade in nature. For example, Christians may be compelled to participate and support programs and procedures that conflict with their sincerely held religious beliefs. They may also be discouraged from public prayer and worship, or prevented from expressing their faith. This, while members of other religious communities may be encouraged to do otherwise, or even applauded for doing so. 

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt blamed what he called "political correctness" and called the persecutions of Christians a "forgotten persecution." 

Christianity is the world's largest religious group, but for this reason Christians face persecution in places where they are minorities. In places where Christians are majorities, secularists often use civil laws to restrict Christian activity.
