Christian Freedom International, a humanitarian aid organization that supports persecuted Christians, has calculated that a Christian is martyred for their faith every five minutes.

Christians have become the most persecuted faith group in the world as a result of the persecution they face in 105 countries across northern and western Africa, the Middle East and Asia, according to aid organization Christian Freedom International. CFI president Jim Jacobson said that much of the persecution against Christians is carried out in the Middle East by Islamic State militants.
"Islamic State militants in Iraq are using Christian churches as torture chambers where they force Christians to either convert to Islam or die," Jacobson told Breitbart.
"Islamic State militants are also stripping the former places of Christian worship of ancient relics which in turn are smuggled to Western collectors to help fund their terrorist activities."
