Pope: 2010 ends after being marked by religious intolerance for Christians
Pope Benedict XVI said Thursday that Christians suffer more religious persecution and intolerance than any other religious group. The pontiff denounced the lack of religious freedom to worship and characterized it as both intolerable and even a threat to world security.
Reportedly, the pope's observation reflected his concerns about Christian groups in the Eastern world. He stated that this year ends after having been "marked by persecution, discrimination, terrible acts of violence and religious intolerance."
