One of the world's hot spots for religious persecution, especially against Christians, is in China. Joining us today is Founder and President of China Aid, Bob Fu (chinaaid.org), who is also a Christian refugee from China. He describes how religious persecution today under the Chinese Communist Party is the worst it has been since the Cultural Revolution. Physical and virtual church gatherings have been banned, millions of Christians and people from other religious groups are in reeducation camps, and social credit score systems loom over everyone as a means of control. Many people are arrested and thrown in prison for hosting in-house church meetings and prayer groups. But the silver lining is that when persecution grows, so does the zeal for Christ and the number of Christians operating in an underground status.
Slavery still exists in the world – all outside of the United States. So does forced sterilization and internment camps in China. Kelsey Bolar (www.iwf.org), Senior Policy Analyst at the Independent Women's Forum, joins us today to discuss these atrocious acts and point out that when the oppressors and slave masters are members of a predetermined minority class, the narrative gets complicated and therefore disappears from media and politics.
John finishes out today's show from the Dialectical Dojo, dishing out knowledge on two logical fallacies: the fallacy of equivocation and the fallacy of false cause or improper correlation. John plans to wear his fallacy kimono at least once a week to educate you on the many logical fallacies we see in today's discourse.
