The worst victims of Christian persecution? Look beyond America, author says

As one of the most widely respected U.S. reporters covering the Catholic Church, John Allen travels around the world following popes. Allen, who has been with the National Catholic Reporter since 1997, said he became more and more struck by the sense of discomfort and sometimes fear and violence Christians experience in many spots outside the United States. That drove him to write “The Global War on Christians,” which came out this fall. Washington Post religion reporter Michelle Boorstein spoke with Allen about what he thinks is driving this and how it contrasts with religious tensions in the United States.
