Lists of Fame and Shame

The list of European tourist destinations is long, but the list of European targets of terrorists is catching up quickly: Berlin, Brussels, London, Madrid, Moscow, Nice, Paris, Stockholm.

Only 90 thousand were killed for their faith in 2016, down from 105 thousand in 2015, according to the highly respected Center for the Study of Global Christianity at the Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary near Boston. That’s one every six minutes. From 2000 to 2010, 100 thousand […]
