A worrying spike in anti-Christian hate crimes has been revealed in a new report from a Christian persecution watchdog group.
The Observatory on Intolerance against Christians in Europe (OIDAC) reported that the number of Christians being targeted with hate crimes jumped 70 percent between 2019 and 2020 in Europe.
The epicenter of such crimes was in France and Germany.
The “Top 5 – Report 2019/2020,” came from two years of research and was issued to mark the International Day of Human Rights.
The report reveals “a multitude of incidents and examples of hate crimes as vandalism of churches and other threats to religious freedom in five European countries where it identified the most severe challenges for Christians.”
