There is not a single, public Christian church left in Afghanistan, according to the U.S. State Department.
This reflects the state of religious freedom in that country ten years after the United States first invaded it and overthrew its Islamist Taliban regime.
In the intervening decade, U.S. taxpayers have spent $440 billion to support Afghanistan's new government and more than 1,700 U.S. military personnel have died serving in that country.
The last public Christian church in Afghanistan was razed in March 2010, according to the State Department's latest International Religious Freedom Report. The report, which was released last month and covers the period of July 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010, also states that "there were no Christian schools in the country."
Not a Single Christian Church Left in Afghanistan, Says State Department
When I read the article I was just as surprise as I know many may have of you are, I actually thought that US was trying to spread no only capitalism, but Christianity into this countries, but this news are very disturbing to me.

It probably happened due to Christianity being tied with the American troops killing and raping their country and people.
What with the whole crusade rhetoric that gets thrown around.
Certainly seems like America has declared war on Brown non Christians.edit on 13-10-2011 by benrl because: (no reason given)

The Afghan people probably began to leave the Christian Churches upon hearing the 10 commandments, and in particular, the one about "Thou Shalt Not Kill"....as their family, friends and neighbors are being bombed and killed by robotic missile wielding drones on a daily basis.
And realized what a bunch of Hypocrites those Christians are !!
After the invasion of Afghanistan littler by littler the Christan churches has been destroyed, now what I don't understand is why under the Taliban rule they were allowed, but now under just Islam rule they are been destroyed.
