Christianophobia 2 by Marahuta Christianophobia 2 by Marahuta
I googled " top 50 dangerous countries for Christians and found these 2 sites with the top 50 countries [link] [link]

I googled "top 50 dangerous countries for muslims" And found no list.

So why isn't the world rampaging about Christian rights in muslim and other religious countries...but are so obsessed with giving muslims in Christian countries more and more and more freedom? Muslims constantly rampage about how tolerant they are and how oppresive others are. Why is it that whenever I google for the facts I end up with the opposite results?

Sites with information about religious freedom in several countries.
[link]

Not all countries listed here are muslim. Nore am I saying that they are. My point is that people won't give a crap if you're not supporting muslims. The comments below proved my point.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yemen:
While in Yemen persecution is not a very big problem, neither the Constitution nor other laws protect freedom of religion. Their have been reports of harasment by the government and raids by the police. Conversion from Islam to another religion is illegal.

Iraq:
While religious freedom is slowly being promoted since 2006 it is not entirely supported and often violated. Their have been reports where non-muslims were forced to adhere to islamic practices. Many terrorist groups have been acting in the country and quite frequently attacking and hunting down Christians. There have also been many reports of the abduction and execution of Christians for refusing to convert. Often Christians are warned by such groups to convert, leave, or be killed.

Pakistan:
The Pakistani government does not restrict religious publishing per se. However, it restricts the right to freedom of speech with regard to religion. Speaking in opposition to Islam and publishing an attack on Islam or its prophets are prohibited. Pakistan's penal code mandates the death penalty for anyone defiling the name of Muhammad. This penal code also mandates life imprisonment for desecrating the Quran.
The Pakistan Penal Code prohibits blasphemy against any recognised religion, providing penalties ranging from a fine to death. However, in practice, it is only applied to Islam. An accusation of blasphemy commonly subjects the accused, police, lawyers, and judges to harassment, threats, and attacks. As of mid-2002, only the testimony of a single Muslim is sufficient to prosecute a non-Muslim on blasphemy charges.

I'm sorry but this is so not true, I can't speak for the other countries but as a Colombian this is not something that happens in my country. I have friends who are Christians and they are not persecuted by anyone. Colombia is a free-religion country. Please do your research because this is stupid and offensive.

A crazy world we live in, to be sure...
And the thing that puzzles me the most is... what do non-Christians feel so threatened by? Jews in the Bible used to give Paul and the early church a lot of trouble... extreme Muslims outright KILL anyone who won't convert to their religion... outspoken atheists jump up and down and scream how offended they are when a Christian so much as mentions their faith in mixed company, or even wears a simple crucifix as a personal witness... Evolution is taught as fact rather than theory, while Creationism is pushed out the window...
What's the big deal? Why are they so scared of us that they take such extreme measures? :confused:

Not true. I know of other religions, as an atheist/antitheist: Hinduism is the most obvious, there's also Taoism, Krishna, Jainism (which is extinct), not sure if Confucianism counts, but what obviously does is Scientology. And America should know about it, also Mormonism.

personally, although i don't really approve of some of the actions done by muslims, I'd say Australia best keep it that way. One of the times my country did that, 18 were killed, 173 were injured,119 vehicles were damaged and at least 2 buildings were burnt over a period of about 2-3 days [link]. Australia is already bad enough considering what happened back in 2009. [link] I once traveled to Australia with my family and my mom got called an 'asian pig'. Please,for Australia-no.

In Saudi Arabia you can be arrested for
1. Being a non-muslim
2. non-muslim prayer gathering
3. Bringing non-muslim religious material into the country
4. Not dressing the way they want you to
5. Insulting or speaking against Islam
6. Talking to others about your religion if you are a non-muslim

You can loose you head, or be crucified(rare) for:
1. Leaving Islam (apostasy)
2. Transport or consume alcohol or drugs

You can be tortured with lashing for:
1. Violating the Shariah

In Pakistan you can be sentenced to death for:
1. Decerating the Quran (either the book or me copies of verses on a paper)
2. Violating the Shariah
3. Supporting non-muslims
4. Not dressing apropriately

In almost all muslim countries:
1. Christians are tortured and/or killed for their religion
2. They are forced to convert to Islam
3. Non-muslim (mainly Christian) children are kidnapped and converted to Islam
4. Muslim apostates are killed
5. Christians can be crucified for spreading their religion
etc.

Can you give me one...just one Christian country that does all this?

It's more a case of persecuting anyone who tries to shove their beliefs in their faces. I have yet to see any other religion persecuted in Kuwait [Though a Jew probably wouldn't enjoy himself here unless s/he was known to be against Israel's policies. Though that's fairly obvious considering the situation in the region]. Though if you try and shove your beliefs in a Kuwaiti's face, expect them to shove their own in yours. Can't complain about that. 's only fair.

They don't even have to shove their beliefs down their throats. Merely preaching would be enough to get you into a lot of trouble. In almost all of the country's you're in trouble only for being a christian. One country doesn't represent all.

Ahem. Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates...etc. It's hardly ONE country. And last I saw, the issue with preaching is because people didn't want others preaching to them, so a law was placed against it [I'm fairly sure a lot of people in the US could agree that they don't enjoy being bothered by Jehovah's Witnesses, for instance. We just stopped that sort of thing through legal means]. If they want it, they can seek it out.

Remember, generalising is the enemy of reasonable and respectable discussion. Not everything you read on the internet is true, and even sources you may assume to be accurate, may not be [that's the main reason why no self respecting university professor will accept an essay that uses wikipedia as a source of facts]. Try visiting the countries you're arguing about, even if only for a few weeks each. Get to know their people, and you'll probably find that the attitude you were expecting is very different to the attitude you encounter. Arabs, in fact, Muslims in general, are hardly alien creatures that have drastically different values, afterall. In the end, we're all the same, and though the surface image, the traditions and cultural norms may differ somewhat, in the end we all share basic beliefs, feelings, emotions and attitudes. I need only point towards the number of US soldiers who went to the Middle East expecting enemies everywhere, only to find they were treated as guests, friends and in some cases, even family.

The matter isn't what was...it's what is. Meanwhile, delving into the past to attack me isn't a good idea, because Islam did the same.
Furthermore, none of those actions while done in the name of religion, weren't justified with proper Christian verses (New Testament). Unlike the Quran, where pretty much everyone who does something violent both past and present, has and does justify with proper Quranic verses and doctrine.
And secondly what Catholics and protestants did is beyond my care because we Orthodox were amung their victims too!

Therefore, we christians are sinless and are entitled to bitch, scream and riot if the government doesn't listen to our bullshit.
FURTHERMORE,NONE OF THESE ACTIONS WHILE DONE IN THE NAME OF RELIGION,WERE'NT JUSTIFIED WITH PROPER CHRISTIAN VERSES
So...you guys were not allowed to massacre innocent women and children and yet you guys did it. YOU SICK FUCKS
UNLIKE THE QURAN, WHERE PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE WHO DOES SOMETHING VIOLENT BOTH PAST AND PRESENT,HAS AND DOES JUSTIFY WITH PROPER QURANIC VERSES AND DOCTRINE

First of all, who is "we"?
Secondly where did I even say that?

Yes, because it was ordered by Popes and lords, that's why they did it! And we Orthodox Christians also fell vitcims to the Catholics and protestants!!

please.[link]
Please what? Go and study the doctrine of abrogation!
specifically

Verse: Q.9:5 (āyat al-sayf, the "sword verse") Abrogatee (mansūkh): Literally dozens of verses enjoining the umma's peacable conduct towards outside groups: Hibat Allāh and al-Nahhās cite 124 and 130 verses, respectively. Ibn al Jawzī and Mustafā Zayd count 140 verses and Ibn Kathir says in his Tafsir that 9.5 abgrogated "It abrogated every agreement of peace between the Prophet and any idolator, every treaty, and every term."

Verse: Q.9:29 Abrogatee: "Nahhās considers 9:29 to have abrogated virtually all verses calling for patience or forgiveness toward Scriptuaries".

Nobody persecutes Muslims? Guess you've never heard of Bosnia then?

Christianity was just like Islam until a few centuries ago. The only reason Christian countries are different now is because of reforms from secular government's. Here's a hint, most "Christian" countries are now secular, the shit hole Islamic countries are the way they are because they are theocracies. Christian countries were the same when they were theocracies too so drop the persecution complex.

Where in my description do I say that "muslims are persecuted nowhere on the planet"?
I said "dangerous countries". Please refrain from putting words that I did not say in my mouth.

Christian countries were not governed by Christian rules/laws. The pope simply had the X, Y future visions and ordered a bunch of shit in the name of God. The Byzantine Empire (a christian empire, just different sect) was also a victim of the Pope's interpretation of the Bible.

This image is VERY inaccurate because it's just US-centric/Eurocentric thinking. This image does NOT speak for Christianity. I know this because I personally know a few Christians (including an ex-Atheist who converted to Christianity), even though I'm an Atheist myself.

If we're talking about persecution of Christians, I must ask what about the Christians being attacked by the Syrian rebels?

Also, China, Vietnam and Cuba have religious freedom. Iran has Christians as well as Jews and Zoroastrians.

Muslims are persecuted in mostly the US and sometimes Western Europe.

No it isn't. I do not understand how you can claim to speak for Christians yet turn a blind eye to the murder of Syrian Christians by the rebels. Assad has tried to protect those Christians.

I will you tell you that I am half-Chinese. There are no widespread persecution of Christians today. The "State Atheism" is hardly enforced anymore except that only members of the government are Atheist but they have accepted religion. China has always had traditional religions such as Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism and other spiritual beliefs. China, Vietnam and Cuba were never as anti-religious as people said they were. They only wanted to push foreign colonialism away.

I would like you to look at the time frame you have set.

Yes, there is persecution in Syria. However not ewnough to put it in the top 50 list. Just because persecution peaked now, doesn't mean Syria is automatically flagged as one of the most anti-christian countries in the world.

Like I said before. Christians are still persecuted there, on a pretty high level too, just not under the order of the government, although sometimes the government does get involved too.
