This is how the elitist media views the majority of Americans. If you speak to us you’re stooping to the Christian masses. Can you imagine the hysterics that would ensue if Chris had accused Jeb of stooping to the Muslim crowd. Matthews ratings are so low, I don’t know how he still has a job. He’s an evil jerk.
This is sad, but not surprising. Have you ever noticed we’re the only religion who sends most of their missionaries overseas to places like Africa, and doesn’t do much in the way of missionary work at home? We send our money overseas, and kill millions of our babies. The Muslims don’t do that. While things are definitely going to get bad for Christians, and already are in so many places, at least we know that we win in the end, and spend eternity with Jesus ruling over the world. Still, it makes me sick that our government is doing nothing about the slaughter of Christians in the Middle East. Hopefully a Presidential election will change that, but I’m not holding my breath. Christians are the only religious people on the planet that it’s okay to persecute.
A new study shows Christianity on the decline in the wealthy West, with Islam surging. What Would Jesus Say? It’s not what you think.
A study released by the Pew Forum last week demonstrates that the future of the religious world is rapidly and dramatically changing. Differences in fertility rates and the high incidence of conversion make Islam the world’s fastest-growing religion. And, if current rates continue, by 2070 Islam could be the world’s largest.
Between now and 2050 the number of Muslims is projected to rise to 2.8 billion, a 35 percent increase. While India will continue to be predominantly Hindu, it will also be home to the world’s largest Muslim population. And, by 2050, Muslims are slated to make up 10 percent of Europe’s population and be the largest non-Christian religion in the U.S.
There is good news for Hindu and Jewish populations, too, which will continue to grow, and the global population of Buddhists should hold steady.
Changes are coming, though, for Christianity. The trend of southward expansion will continue. By 2050, 4 out of every 10 Christians will live in sub-Saharan Africa. Christianity will grow, but not in wealthier countries. In the U.S., the Christian majority will slip from roughly three-quarters of the population to a still-healthy two-thirds.
We should take the findings with a pinch of salt. As a study, it is grounded in the assumption that people will continue to act in the future as they have in the recent past. In other words, the study assumes that economics, education levels, migration patterns, technological and health-care advances, military conflicts, and politics will not impact fertility and conversion rates in the decades to come. That seems unlikely to be the case.
Obama gets upset about a cartoon of his prophet Mohamed, but another holocaust against Christians in the Middle East doesn’t even make his radar. He’s more concerned with getting voters to cross the Mexican border and too concerned with his ego and legacy to care about children being crucified, and Christians being murdered in mass. We don’t have a President. We have a dictator with no conscience. It doesn’t make me feel very safe, because he probably cares even less about the safety of the American people.
1. Col. Sangari, summarize the situation of the Assyrian Christians on the Nineveh Plains.
The Assyrian Christian communities on the Nineveh Plains in Iraq, and also in northern Syria in the Khabur River Valley, are facing annhilation by the forces of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). According to UN sources an estimated 660,0000 Assyrians have been driven from their homes by ISIL forces and are now living as refugees in Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, and even Iran.
2. Which forces in Iraq are currently fighting ISIS and are they working together?
Since August of 2014 Assyrian military forces have been fighting in Syria and Iraq under Assyrian command and control and the Assyrian flag. These forces have achieved unity of command and unity of effort, and are recognized by coalition forces as vital partners in the fight against ISIS/ISIL aggression. In October, and because of the demonstrated combat effectiveness of Assyrian forces, Sunni, Kurdish, and Shia forces began recruiting Assyrians into their ranks using the political networks they had previously embedded in the Assyrian communities. This move siphoned off troops and money from Assyrian forces, causing a reduction in their combat capabilities that contributed to the loss of 37 communities to ISIL in the Khabur River Valley. If this trend of Assyrian volunteers being sent to fight with other non-Assyrian groups is not halted, the result will be the complete destruction of the Assyrian Army and the subjugation of Assyrians in their own homeland under Kurdish, Sunni, and Shia military leadership and civilian administration.
3. In your recent media appearances you´ve spoken about a double standard being used by the US government with respect to the Assyrian Christians–why is this true?
