A map regarding religious freedom

Razib Khan points to the U.S. State Department’s International Religious Freedom Report 2009 and extracts from it a list of the countries from their section titled “RESTRICTIONS, ABUSES, AND CONCERNS”.  I thought I’d take it one step further and present it in map form (countries listed as having noteworthy violations are red):

Obviously, if you want to know the exact reasons given by the State Department for their designations, you can read the report, but I think that a cartographic aid can be helpful in drawing out patterns.
