A new British report discovered that Christians are the world’s most persecuted religious group.
The report was published by Philip Mounstephen who found that the persecution of Christians is approaching “near genocide” levels in some parts of the world, above all the Middle East.
The Bishop said, “Evidence shows not only the geographic spread of anti-Christian persecution but also its increasing severity.”
In some regions, the level and nature of persecution is arguably coming close to meeting the international definition of genocide, according to that adopted by the UN.”Mountstephen estimates that “80% of persecuted religious believers are Christians.
According to The Blaze, the report from Mountstephen contends that 1 in 3 people across the globe are persecuted for their religion. Christians are the most persecuted of this group.
The report stated, “Though it is impossible to know the exact numbers of people persecuted for their faith, based on reports from different NGOs, it is estimated that one-third of the world’s population suffers from religious persecution in some form, with Christians being the most persecuted group.”
The violence against Christians has reached such shocking levels that Christianity is at risk of completely disappearing from the Middle East.
The main impact of such genocidal acts against Christians is exodus. Christianity now faces the possibility of being wiped-out in parts of the Middle East where its roots go back furthest.In Palestine, Christian numbers are below 1.5 percent; in Syria the Christian population has declined from 1.7 million in 2011 to below 450,000 and in Iraq, Christian numbers have slumped from 1.5 million before 2003 to below 120,000 today.Christianity is at risk of disappearing, representing a massive setback for plurality in the region.
In the recent Sri Lankan bombings that targeted Catholic Churches and various hotels in Colombo, Sri Lanka, 253 people were killed by Islamic terrorists of the Jihadist group National Thowheeth Jama’ath.
From February to March, the Baptist Press reported that 280 Christians were killed in Nigeria by Boko Haram terrorists. However, these attacks were overshadowed by the Christchurch Mosque massacres in March.
Despite so much talk about privilege, Christians in some parts of the world aren’t exactly living the easiest lives.
Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel
Post-pandemic America will not look the same.
Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.
In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates.
Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.”
Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.
According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”
Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:
If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.
Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain.
If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
