Nigeria’s Anti-Christian Jihad in Numbers: 11,500 Dead, 13,000 Churches Destroyed

A new report offers some startling statistics on the devastation wrought by Muslims on the Christian population in Nigeria, with 11,500 Christians killed, a million displaced and 13,000 churches destroyed or shut down in the last 15 years.

The 48-page report titled “Crushed but Not Defeated: The Impact of Persistent Violence on the Church in Northern Nigeria,” documents the extent of Christian persecution in Nigeria due to targeted violence by Islamic extremists as well as other more moderate Muslims.

    But what about Cecil the Lion. The western media knows what the important news is in Africa.

    Isn’t Nigeria more than 50% Christian? What are they doing, letting themselves be persecuted by a minority?
    I’m a little suspicious of all this talk that seems to be coming out of majority-Christian African countries. Are we sure it’s not an excuse to facilitate emigration of African Christians to Europe?

      I would call it genocide in action.

      Christianity has not fight in it. I Always balk when certain (not all) atheists patronize me about violent evil Christianity. Most Christians I know are thoroughly gutless.
