Religious Persecution Persists Worldwide, Says State Department Report

The U.S. Department of State released its 2021 Report on International Religious Freedom on June 2. Among the most egregious violators were Afghanistan, Burma, China, Eritrea, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia. India, Nigeria, and Vietnam were among nations who threaten religious rights, though they are considered less severe in their violations.

In the video below, Secretary of State Antony Blinken begins his remarks at about the 37:00 mark followed by remarks from Ambassador Rashad Hussain. It’s interesting to note during the remarks (which end at about the 55:00 mark) that a lot of emphasis is given to persecuted Muslims like the Uyghurs, but there’s only scant mention of Christians, the most persecuted religious group on the planet. Also interesting is that China and Russia are the main villains in this scenario, as they should be. However, the Biden family has made millions from shady business deals with both Russian leaders and Chinese Communist leaders, making me suspect they’re really frenemies– saber-rattling against each other for the cameras while they’re cozy behind the scenes. Additionally, the Taliban are excoriated in the remarks despite the fact the Biden administration actively empowered, enabled, and armed the Taliban with their disgraceful abandonment of Afghanistan last year.

And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Revelation 12:17
