Although typically understood to be an open nation, Turkey may quickly be taking a turn for the worse when it comes to religious freedom. Today, an ICC team met with partners in Turkey who described the future for Christians as “bleak.” They point out that the Prime Minister, Recep Erdogan, who is expected to be elected to the presidency on Sunday, has increasingly used anti-Christian rhetoric as he strives to maintain his position. “There is more anti-Christian rhetoric today than ever before” said ICC’s contact. Last year, Turkey also imprisoned more journalists than any other nation in the world, beating even Iran and China.
