Washington D.C., Mar 3, 2015 / 05:00 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Christian groups lead the world in a sobering statistic: they suffer harassment in more countries than any other religious group.

“The world’s two largest religious groups, Christians and Muslims, continued to be harassed in the most countries, and there was a notable increase in the number of countries in which Jews and adherents of folk religions were harassed,” the Pew Research Center said in a Feb. 26 report on trends in religion-related restrictions and hostilities.

Christian groups suffered social or government harassment in 102 countries in 2013, while Muslims faced similar problems in 99 countries. Jewish groups faced harassment in 77 countries, a seven-year high.
