One of the world’s leading experts on Christian persecution and the author of the 2013 bestseller The Global War on Christians, Allen spoke with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon on Thursday, recounting the rising tide of violence targeting Christians worldwide.
Allen insisted that the term “war” against Christians is a precise description of what is going on, not in the sense of “a unified command structure” but in the massive “body count” and the cohesive motive of hatred against the Christian faith.
“The high-end estimate for the number of new Christian martyrs every year is around 100 thousand,” Allen stated. “The low-end estimate is about 7 or 8 thousand. Which works out to one casualty either every five minutes or every hour, of every day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. If that’s not a war, I’m not sure we’ve ever seen one.”
The war on Christians is also “global,” Allen argued, with some “200 million Christians in the world today who are daily at risk of physical assault, arrest, imprisonment, torture or death.”
“That’s 200 million people we’re talking about, spread all across the planet,” he said.
