The report in Christianity Today makes fascinating, though depressing reading. Thank you.

Isn't it odd, though, that a few of the countries on the list are majority Christian (for example #6 most severe and #12 most violent)?

Nigeria isn't majority Christian (it has more Muslims), but Colombia surprised me.

This, in my mind, is one of the biggest issues going on in the world that no one talks about. People assume that the Middle East has always been 100% Muslim, but it hasn't by a long shot. Lebanon was majority Christian until fairly recently. Egypt and Syria had large Christian populations that are shrinking due to persecution. Turkey was about 25% Christian before WWI but is now 99.8% Muslim. Even Iraq used to have a lot of Christians. (If you live in the Detroit area you might meet some). Entire cultures are being erased and very few people in the West care.

Look up Asia Bibi and Pakistani blasphemy laws... people get sentenced to death for the most minor infractions. Pakistan is easily one of the most intolerant countries in the world, not just to Christians but also to Hindus and non-Sunni Muslims.

While I agree very much with the sentiment of the quiz, I'm not sure I agree with the first part of the description... gun violence is a real problem in America and while the media covers mass shootings frequently it fails to talk about the thousands that die due to many minor shootings. There are many things that the news media emphasizes that are completely unimportant (like news channels talking about Trump 24/7), but gun violence is not one of them. Otherwise though, I agree with QuizMaster and HinesBrothers that the way Christians (and indeed all religious and ethnic minorities) are treated in some Asian and African countries is horrific and needs more attention in the West.

Just to be clear, the point I'm trying to make is that anything that results in thousands of deaths every year deserves attention, regardless of whether it is gun violence, religious/ethnic intolerance, natural disasters/climate change, or something else. The news media spends way too much time talking about things that are of little to no consequence for anyone and they could definitely focus less on "first world" problems and more on actual issues that affect people globally.
