Persecution of Christians can be traced historically from the time of Jesus in the first century to the present time...has reported that over 100,000 Christians are violently killed annually because of some relation to their faith. According to the World Evangelical Alliance, over 200 million Christians are denied fundamental human rights solely because of their faith. Of the 100-200 million Christians under assault, the majority are persecuted in Muslim-dominated nations. Christians suffer numerically more than any other faith groups or groups without faith in the world. Of the world's three largest religions Christians are the most proportionally persecuted with 80% of all acts of religious discrimination being directed at Christians who only make up 33% of the world's population.
Every year, the Christian non-profit organization Open Doors publishes a list of the top 50 countries where persecution of Christians for religious reasons is worst. The 2014 list has the following countries as its top 10 offenders:
Our website provides daily news on Christian persecution in over 45 countries. Our contacts in countries around the world provide us with the information to publish incidents of persecution as quickly as possible.www.persecution.org...
Open Doors is a non-denominational mission supporting what the organization regards as persecuted Christians in over 60 countries where Christianity is socially or legally discouraged or oppressed.www.opendoors.org...
Most people in the West would be surprised by the answer to the question: who are the most persecuted people in the world? According to the International Society for Human Rights, a secular group with members in 38 states worldwide, 80 per cent of all acts of religious discrimination in the world today are directed at Christians.
The Centre for the Study of Global Christianity in the United States estimates that 100,000 Christians now die every year, targeted because of their faith – that is 11 every hour.www.independent.co.uk...
Why are Christians, as a new Pew report documents, the most persecuted religious group in the world? And why is their persecution occurring primarily throughout the Islamic world?..these faiths tend to be coterminous with their respective ethnicities: Buddhists, Asians; Judaism, Jews; Hinduism, Hindus.. www.frontpagemag.com...

"What goes around, comes around" comes to mind.
Are we to forget what Christians have Done for 2000 years in the name of THEIR religion?

You will be called all kinds of horrid things for your OP by most of the people who will post replies.
You will be ridiculed by most of the people who will post replies.
You will be told to go to all kinds of places by most of the people who will post replies.
Because most of the people who reply will be militant atheists and people who have been emotionally hurt by a Christian or people of other faiths.
ATS is absolutely not the place to expect any sort of unemotional and rational dialog on the subject.
Most posters are incapable of rational dialog on this subject because they are way too emotional on the subject of Christianity.
You will find people who agree will be few and far between, and they too will be ridiculed, called names, and asked to give impossible proofs.
You are correct in your assertion that Christians are being persecuted around the world today at a much higher rate since the Romans ruled the world. But you will find no sympathy at ATS, only people who will say good you nasty Christians, you deserve it. That is the way ATS operates when it comes to Christians.
I learned this lesson a long time ago. There is nearly no one on ATS who can be rational and write unemotionally about religion and Christianity in particular.
As a fellow Christian who thinks your assertion is correct, know that posting stuff like this on ATS will only get you crucified by the vast majority of posters because they can not look at the data rationally, they are incapable of it due to their emotions getting in the way of rational thought.
