90,000 Christians Killed for Their Faith in 2016, 1 Every 6 Minutes 02/07/2017


90,000 Christians were murdered for their faith around the world this year, according to a study from The Center for the Study of Global Christianity.

Amy Kellogg reported on "Special Report" tonight that the CSGC puts the number of Christians martyred in the last decade at 900,000, which amounts to one being killed every six minutes.

She explained that their definition for a martyr is anyone who lost their life prematurely as a result of human hostility, while they were upholding Christianity.

"This makes Christians the most persecuted religious group in the world," Kellogg said.
