It's Wednesday, January 25th, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark Pakistan's new law punishes Christians with 10-year prison sentence Last Tuesday, Pakistan's National Assembly passed a bill to make the country's blasphemy laws more stringent. Under the new bill, the person who insults Islam's false prophet Mohammed faces 10 years in prison and a fine of over $4,000. Pakistan's blasphemy laws already criminalize insulting Islam which carries a death sentence or life in prison. Religious minorities, including Christians, are concerned the new measure will be used to target them. Christian Solidarity Worldwide President Mervyn Thomas said the bill was “approved without debate by Pakistan's parliament despite the fact that existing blasphemy legislation has resulted in extra-judicial killings and countless incidents of mob violence based on false accusations.” Former homosexual pleads with nations to pray for his trial As The Worldview reported yesterday, a Christian charity worker in Malta, the island near Sicily, is facing criminal charges for allegedly discussing and advertising “conversion practices.” Last year, 33-year-old Matthew Grech told PMnews Malta about how he stopped practicing homosexuality after converting to Christianity. In the interview, Grech said, “I understood that in the Bible, homosexuality . . . is a sin. Just like every other sin, one can repent from it and ask God for forgiveness and ask Him for strength to overcome.”  Grech now faces trial on February 3. Malta was the first country in the European Union to ban so-called “conversion therapy” in 2016.  He said he hopes his case will overturn the ban. GRECH: “Joined with me in prayer, join with us here in Malta, that God would use the situation to overturn things and to revoke this evil ban on so-called ‘conversion therapy.' And that it would have a ripple effect across the nations, so that righteousness would prevail again.” Isaiah 61:11 says, “For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations.” Thousands attend France's March for Life On Sunday, thousands of people took to the streets of Paris for the French March for Life. The annual event coincides with the anniversary of the country's legalization of abortion in January 1975. This year's march protested plans by the French government to legalize euthanasia and to include support for abortion in their constitution. America's explosive $31 trillion debt Last Thursday, the U.S. government hit its $31.4 trillion debt ceiling established by Congress. The Treasury Department implemented extraordinary measures to temporarily keep the government from defaulting on its debt while lawmakers debate terms for raising the limit. For decades, both Republicans and Democrats have been increasing the debt ceiling to finance wars, tax cuts, social security, emergency measures, and other federal spending.  Under Republican Presidents George W. Bush and Donald Trump, the national debt grew $12.7 trillion dollars. It has grown $13 trillion under the Democrat administrations of Barack Obama and Joe Biden. Parents concerned with children's potential anxiety A new report by Pew Research found that the top concern of U.S. parents is if their children struggle with anxiety and depression. When it comes to aspirations, most parents prioritize financial stability and job satisfaction for their children. Parents also said it was very important for their kids to be honest and ethical, hardworking, and helpful to those in need. However, very few parents said it was important for their children to share their own religious beliefs. Protestant parents were notably more likely to want their children to carry on their religious beliefs. Psalm 78:4 says, “We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and His might, and the wonders that He has done.” Oldest human alive today just died at age 118 And finally, Lucile Randon, known as Sister André, died at the age of 118 in the southern French city of Toulon last Tuesday. She was the oldest known person in the world at the time. The nun devoted her life to service, caring for children during World War II and spent decades supporting the elderly and orphaned at a hospital. She's lived under 18 French presidents, including President Emmanuel Macron who sent her a handwritten birthday note last year when she turned 118. Sister André not only survived the Spanish Flu pandemic in 1918 but also beat COVID-19 at the age of 116. Of course, the oldest person in world history was Methuselah, who died at the age of 969 according to Genesis 5:27.

Beginning in December of 2003, strange and unexplained fires began occurring in the seaside town of Canneto Di Caronia, Sicily, Italy. The fires caused damage to many homes and businesses and the residents had to evacuate by the next summer. What's strange is that the cause of the fires has never been determined even after scientists and government organizations studied the quiet town. Filmmaker Laura Moss joins the podcast to discuss the strange mystery of Canneto. Theories include UFOs, secret weapons testing, and, of course, the Devil.  Catch Laura Moss' feature film BIRTH/REBIRTH after its premier at Sundance 2023 at a theater near you followed by its streaming on Shudder.

It's Tuesday, January 24th, A.D. 2023. This The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com.  I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Kevin Swanson Former homosexual faces prison over Christian testimony A Christian man in Malta, an island near Sicily, faces five months in prison and/or a $5,000-euro fine for giving his testimony on PMNews Malta last April, reports Fox News. Matthew Grech told the news outlet he had become a Christian and turned away from the homosexual lifestyle. This may be the first case of this form of Christian persecution in the Western world.   For the record, this is what Matthew said on the broadcast. “In the Bible, homosexuality is not an identity as we make it nowadays. And neither is it a feeling, but a practice. This means that no matter what sexual feelings a man or a woman is experiencing, if they have sexual relations with a person of the same sex, they commit the homosexual act in God's eyes, and that is a sin. Just like every other sin, one can repent from it and ask God for forgiveness and ask Him for strength to overcome.” Malta became the first nation in the European Union to ban conversion “therapy” for homosexuals in 2016.   ChristianConcern.com notes that the homosexual lobby in Malta has an end goal in mind. It's “aggressive campaigning is aimed at criminalizing Christian beliefs on human sexuality and silencing any opposition.” Muslims killed 14 Christians, wounded 63, during Congo baptism More Christian martyrdoms in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa where Muslim extremists are suspected of bombing a Church of Christ baptismal service, reports Morning Star News. At least 14 died and 63 more were wounded in the blast in Kasindi. A church elder reported that two men entered the church building and left a bag, which contained an improvised explosive device that soon detonated. Discrimination against churches in Indonesia Indonesian churches are increasingly finding it hard to find places to worship in the 86% Muslim- majority nation, reports Morning Star News.   A church in North Sumatra was kicked out of the mall where they worshiped, and prohibited from worshiping outdoors near the Medan City Hall.    Ironically enough, International Christian Concern documented that Indonesian President Joko Widodo recently addressed the National Coordination Meeting of Regional Head. He said “those who are Christians, Catholics, Hindus, and Confucians have the same rights in worship and freedom of religion.”    Biden applauds abortion on 50th Roe v. Wade anniversary The president of the United States took the opportunity to issue an official proclamation on the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade to commemorate the record of abortions.  Not only did President Biden call on the Congress to pass legislation to encode abortion as ”the law of the land,” but he committed to use “Executive Power” to enforce abortion in the U.S. He also commended the American voters for approving “the right to choose” in recent elections, including Kansas, California, and Michigan.  Surgical abortions, abortifacients, the IUD, Day After Pill, and the Kill Pill Over 65 million children have been murdered by abortion in the United State since 1973 -- up through 2022, reports the American Life League.   Unknown millions of other children have been killed by abortifacients, the IUD, the day after pill, and the undocumented use of Mifeprestone (the Kill Pill). Psalm 106:36-40 warns of this. “They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons, and shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood. … Therefore, the wrath of the Lord was kindled.”  Russian leader: U.S. involvement in war with Ukraine dangerous More saber-rattling from Russia. Dmitry Medvedev, the nation's deputy chairman of the security council (and former President), threatened that, "The world has come close to the threat of World War III due to impending U.S. aggression against the Russian Federation,” reports Sky News Arabia. Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, told a South African audience over the weekend that the war is shifting from a proxy war (on the part of the European Allies) to “almost a real one” with Europe and America. Lab-grown meat coming soon Lab grown meat is soon to be on the market in the United States as early as this year, reports Reuters. Singapore has been selling the fake meat since 2021. Scientists have taken a few cells from real meat, and submitted the cells to intense anabolic growth hormones. A company called UPSIDE has the capacity of an annual production of 400,000 pounds of what they call “cultivated meat.” Home sales have dropped 44% Let us not forget that “the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils.” (1 Timothy 6:10) Home sales are tanking in the U.S. — and its worse in the West. Sales have dropped 44% in the Western states. Median prices are off 11.3% from their peak last June, almost entirely reversing year-on-year increases.   The worst decrease was seen in the San Francisco Bay Area — thus far, a 33% decrease in price from its April 2022 peak. 57,000 layoffs in tech firms this month And finally, so far in January, almost 57,000 layoffs have been announced for the tech industry, reports Business Insider.   That's in addition to 159,000 layoffs last year. The states claiming the highest percentage of tech jobs are Washington State, Virginia, and Colorado.

Italy's most-wanted Mafia boss Matteo Messina Denaro has been arrested in Sicily after 30 years on the run. Mr Denaro was reportedly detained in a private clinic in Sicily's capital, Palermo, where he was receiving treatment for cancer. Considered the boss of the notorious Cosa Nostra Mafia, he was tried and sentenced to life in jail in absentia in 2002 over numerous murders. Italy's Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni has celebrated his arrest, but says the war against the mafia isn't over. Davide Lerner, a journalist based in Rome, spoke to Charlotte Cook.

The White House Counsel's Office announced the discovery on Thursday, saying it had initiated a search of Biden's homes in Rehoboth Beach and Wilmington after news of the first stash broke this week and found documents in the Wilmington home's garage. Fox News presses Biden over classified docs in garage: 'What were you thinking?'- Play Video White House lawyers say they immediately contacted the DOJ when they discovered the documents this week. There has been no indication of what the documents contain or whether Biden or anyone else read them after he left office as vice president. The Wilmington documents are the second stash of Obama-era classified documents to be uncovered. The first collection was found at the Washington office of the Penn Biden Center, a Biden-aligned think tank. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/washington-secrets/more-americans-id-as-republicans-than-democrats More Americans identify as Republicans than Democrats For the first time in decades, more people identify as Republicans than Democrats, a striking change that bolsters polls showing that the United States is a moderate-conservative nation. In the latest massive Gallup survey of 10,000 adults, 45% identified as Republicans and 44% as Democrats. That’s a tiny edge for sure, but it’s the first time the GOP has had the lead since former President George H.W. Bush launched the Gulf War in 1991. Gallup said: “A virtual tie in party identification and leaning represents one of the better outcomes for the Republican Party over the past three decades.” However, when the choice of independents is thrown in, more U.S. adults picked that label. “Since 2009, independent identification has grown and reached levels not seen before. Now, political independents (41%) greatly outnumber Republican (28%) and Democratic (28%) identifiers,” said Gallup on Thursday. In a related survey, the polling giant also said that America politically is a moderate-conservative nation. When asked to describe their political views, 47% of adults said moderate, 30% conservative, and 21% liberal. That survey also revealed that the Democrats are more liberal than ever. “After hovering near 50% in recent years, the percentage of Democrats who identify as politically liberal rose four percentage points in 2022 to 54%, a new high for this group,” said Gallup. https://www.based-politics.com/2023/01/11/these-5-states-lost-the-most-population-in-2022/ These 5 states lost the most population in 2022 Another year is in the books, which means there’s another year of data to analyze, too. And the Tax Foundation just published an interesting analysis shedding light on which states gained the most population in 2022—and which ones saw residents leave in droves. The analysis examined the time period between July 2021 and July 2022 and found overall US population growth was at 0.4%, but some states’ populations shrank while others grew. As it turns out, the state that gained the most population was Florida, which saw 1.9% population growth. Other states that gained 1% population include Idaho, South Carolina, Texas, South Dakota, Montana, Delaware, Arizona, North Carolina, Utah, Tennessee, Georgia, and Nevada. Meanwhile, the 5 states that lost the most population were: New York (-0.9%) Illinois (-0.8%) Louisiana (-0.8%) West Virginia (-0.6%) Hawaii (-0.5%) Noticing any trends yet? Generally speaking, the states losing population are blue states with high taxes and heavily restricted economies. On the other hand, the booming states, like Florida, South Carolina, and Texas, are red states with lower tax burdens and less-regulated economies. That’s just speculation, but it’s borne out in the data. “People move for many reasons,” the Tax Foundation explains. “Sometimes taxes are expressly part of the calculation. Often, they play an indirect role (by contributing to a broadly favorable economic environment). And other times, of course, they don’t factor in at all. The Census data and these industry studies cannot tell us exactly why each person moved, but there is no denying a very strong correlation between low-tax, low-cost states and population growth.” It really is becoming so glaring that even New York Governor Kathy Hochul recently admitted their state needs to address its population drain—months after telling Republicans to “get out.” As twitter user Jim Stinson tweeted: If you tell people to leave, they will. If you over-regulate them and overtax them, they will leave faster. https://www.dailywire.com/news/out-of-left-field-uscs-school-of-social-work-bans-the-word-field-because-its-racist-apparently USC’s School Of Social Work Bans The Word ‘Field’ Because It’s Racist, Apparently Have you ever aspired to be the best in your field? Did you ever refer to doing a job outside of the office as “field work?” Well, if you answered yes to any of those questions, then you may unwittingly be promoting racism and bigotry — according to the University of Southern California School of Social Work. It seems wokeness knows no bounds — which is entirely the point of those who promote it. They have no limit in their zeal to assert power and are willing to coerce you into following along with their plan. On January 9, the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work sent an email to faculty, staff, and students notifying them that the department has new speech code guidelines in order to ensure “inclusive language and practice.” “Specifically, we have decided to remove the term ‘field,’ from our curriculum and practice and replace it with ‘practicum,'” the letter explained. What is so egregious about the word “field”? Well, according to the brainiacs out on the West Coast, it is offensive to black and immigrants everywhere. “Language can be powerful, and phrases such as ‘going into the field’ or ‘fieldwork’ may have connotations for descendants of slavery and immigrant workers that are not benign,” according to the letter. If a word isn’t “benign” that would mean it is malignant. Per the letter sent around, the word “field” is so malevolent that merely using it promotes “white supremacy, anti-immigrant and anti-blackness ideologies.” So, the school is beginning to put its words into action by banning the term altogether. In doing so, of course, they are unwittingly revealing their own racism by implying that only black people and immigrants work in “fields.” It doesn’t need to be said, but of course, every civilization on earth has had “fields” in one form or another and somebody who worked there. https://humanevents.com/2023/01/11/italian-mp-giorgia-meloni-mimics-desantis-sends-migrants-to-left-run-cities?utm_campaign=64487 Italian PM Giorgia Meloni Pulls a DeSantis, Sends Migrants to Left-Run Cities The government of Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni is facing a fierce backlash from their left-wing detractors after directing NGO ships carrying illegal migrants to ports in cities governed by pro-migration mayors, a move immediately compared to a policy ordered by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, As part of a recent security decree, authorities are now redirecting vessels that pick up migrants in the Mediterranean to ports located farther away from the search and rescue area, frequently opting for cities governed by leftist mayors. the decree has been met with opposition from the left-leaning Democratic Party and the mayors of the affected cities, both of whom argue the measures are excessive and go against the supposed advantages of mass illegal migration. However, these concerns were rubbished by Wand Ferro, the undersecretary at Italy’s Interior Ministry, who said: “The left protests because NGO ships are finally disembarking in other regions of central Italy and no longer only in the South. Evidently, on the left, they would like to transform Calabria and Sicily into the refugee camp of Europe, a completely unacceptable prospect.” Ferro stated that the asylum centers in southern Italy have faced persistent strain for years and that the government's action to alleviate that pressure amount to a necessary response. She also dismissed the criticisms from NGOs who operate the migrant transport ships, pointing out that it is not unusual for these ships to keep refugees at sea for extended periods while waiting to pick up more migrants, adding that these ships have a tendency to take migrants to European ports instead of closer ports located in North Africa. “Perhaps the left suffers from a sort of NIMBY [not in my backyard] syndrome, preaching welcome as long as it is away from their backyard,” Ferro continued. However, NGOs who help facilitate these routes of illegal migration complained in a joint statement that the policy is hindering their efforts to save stranded migrants. “Among other rules, the Italian government requires civilian rescue ships to head to Italy after each rescue immediately," the statement reads. "This delays further lifesaving operations, as ships usually carry out multiple rescues over the course of several days." The policy of the Meloni conservative government, which came to power in last October's general election, immediately drew comparisons to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who last year sent illegal migrants to the wealthy, heavily liberal island enclave of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. The move sparked outrage from wealthy residents, with local authorities opting to activate the National Guard in order to have the individuals quickly removed.

The White House Counsel's Office announced the discovery on Thursday, saying it had initiated a search of Biden's homes in Rehoboth Beach and Wilmington after news of the first stash broke this week and found documents in the Wilmington home's garage. Fox News presses Biden over classified docs in garage: 'What were you thinking?'- Play Video White House lawyers say they immediately contacted the DOJ when they discovered the documents this week. There has been no indication of what the documents contain or whether Biden or anyone else read them after he left office as vice president. The Wilmington documents are the second stash of Obama-era classified documents to be uncovered. The first collection was found at the Washington office of the Penn Biden Center, a Biden-aligned think tank. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/washington-secrets/more-americans-id-as-republicans-than-democrats More Americans identify as Republicans than Democrats For the first time in decades, more people identify as Republicans than Democrats, a striking change that bolsters polls showing that the United States is a moderate-conservative nation. In the latest massive Gallup survey of 10,000 adults, 45% identified as Republicans and 44% as Democrats. That’s a tiny edge for sure, but it’s the first time the GOP has had the lead since former President George H.W. Bush launched the Gulf War in 1991. Gallup said: “A virtual tie in party identification and leaning represents one of the better outcomes for the Republican Party over the past three decades.” However, when the choice of independents is thrown in, more U.S. adults picked that label. “Since 2009, independent identification has grown and reached levels not seen before. Now, political independents (41%) greatly outnumber Republican (28%) and Democratic (28%) identifiers,” said Gallup on Thursday. In a related survey, the polling giant also said that America politically is a moderate-conservative nation. When asked to describe their political views, 47% of adults said moderate, 30% conservative, and 21% liberal. That survey also revealed that the Democrats are more liberal than ever. “After hovering near 50% in recent years, the percentage of Democrats who identify as politically liberal rose four percentage points in 2022 to 54%, a new high for this group,” said Gallup. https://www.based-politics.com/2023/01/11/these-5-states-lost-the-most-population-in-2022/ These 5 states lost the most population in 2022 Another year is in the books, which means there’s another year of data to analyze, too. And the Tax Foundation just published an interesting analysis shedding light on which states gained the most population in 2022—and which ones saw residents leave in droves. The analysis examined the time period between July 2021 and July 2022 and found overall US population growth was at 0.4%, but some states’ populations shrank while others grew. As it turns out, the state that gained the most population was Florida, which saw 1.9% population growth. Other states that gained 1% population include Idaho, South Carolina, Texas, South Dakota, Montana, Delaware, Arizona, North Carolina, Utah, Tennessee, Georgia, and Nevada. Meanwhile, the 5 states that lost the most population were: New York (-0.9%) Illinois (-0.8%) Louisiana (-0.8%) West Virginia (-0.6%) Hawaii (-0.5%) Noticing any trends yet? Generally speaking, the states losing population are blue states with high taxes and heavily restricted economies. On the other hand, the booming states, like Florida, South Carolina, and Texas, are red states with lower tax burdens and less-regulated economies. That’s just speculation, but it’s borne out in the data. “People move for many reasons,” the Tax Foundation explains. “Sometimes taxes are expressly part of the calculation. Often, they play an indirect role (by contributing to a broadly favorable economic environment). And other times, of course, they don’t factor in at all. The Census data and these industry studies cannot tell us exactly why each person moved, but there is no denying a very strong correlation between low-tax, low-cost states and population growth.” It really is becoming so glaring that even New York Governor Kathy Hochul recently admitted their state needs to address its population drain—months after telling Republicans to “get out.” As twitter user Jim Stinson tweeted: If you tell people to leave, they will. If you over-regulate them and overtax them, they will leave faster. https://www.dailywire.com/news/out-of-left-field-uscs-school-of-social-work-bans-the-word-field-because-its-racist-apparently USC’s School Of Social Work Bans The Word ‘Field’ Because It’s Racist, Apparently Have you ever aspired to be the best in your field? Did you ever refer to doing a job outside of the office as “field work?” Well, if you answered yes to any of those questions, then you may unwittingly be promoting racism and bigotry — according to the University of Southern California School of Social Work. It seems wokeness knows no bounds — which is entirely the point of those who promote it. They have no limit in their zeal to assert power and are willing to coerce you into following along with their plan. On January 9, the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work sent an email to faculty, staff, and students notifying them that the department has new speech code guidelines in order to ensure “inclusive language and practice.” “Specifically, we have decided to remove the term ‘field,’ from our curriculum and practice and replace it with ‘practicum,'” the letter explained. What is so egregious about the word “field”? Well, according to the brainiacs out on the West Coast, it is offensive to black and immigrants everywhere. “Language can be powerful, and phrases such as ‘going into the field’ or ‘fieldwork’ may have connotations for descendants of slavery and immigrant workers that are not benign,” according to the letter. If a word isn’t “benign” that would mean it is malignant. Per the letter sent around, the word “field” is so malevolent that merely using it promotes “white supremacy, anti-immigrant and anti-blackness ideologies.” So, the school is beginning to put its words into action by banning the term altogether. In doing so, of course, they are unwittingly revealing their own racism by implying that only black people and immigrants work in “fields.” It doesn’t need to be said, but of course, every civilization on earth has had “fields” in one form or another and somebody who worked there. https://humanevents.com/2023/01/11/italian-mp-giorgia-meloni-mimics-desantis-sends-migrants-to-left-run-cities?utm_campaign=64487 Italian PM Giorgia Meloni Pulls a DeSantis, Sends Migrants to Left-Run Cities The government of Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni is facing a fierce backlash from their left-wing detractors after directing NGO ships carrying illegal migrants to ports in cities governed by pro-migration mayors, a move immediately compared to a policy ordered by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, As part of a recent security decree, authorities are now redirecting vessels that pick up migrants in the Mediterranean to ports located farther away from the search and rescue area, frequently opting for cities governed by leftist mayors. the decree has been met with opposition from the left-leaning Democratic Party and the mayors of the affected cities, both of whom argue the measures are excessive and go against the supposed advantages of mass illegal migration. However, these concerns were rubbished by Wand Ferro, the undersecretary at Italy’s Interior Ministry, who said: “The left protests because NGO ships are finally disembarking in other regions of central Italy and no longer only in the South. Evidently, on the left, they would like to transform Calabria and Sicily into the refugee camp of Europe, a completely unacceptable prospect.” Ferro stated that the asylum centers in southern Italy have faced persistent strain for years and that the government's action to alleviate that pressure amount to a necessary response. She also dismissed the criticisms from NGOs who operate the migrant transport ships, pointing out that it is not unusual for these ships to keep refugees at sea for extended periods while waiting to pick up more migrants, adding that these ships have a tendency to take migrants to European ports instead of closer ports located in North Africa. “Perhaps the left suffers from a sort of NIMBY [not in my backyard] syndrome, preaching welcome as long as it is away from their backyard,” Ferro continued. However, NGOs who help facilitate these routes of illegal migration complained in a joint statement that the policy is hindering their efforts to save stranded migrants. “Among other rules, the Italian government requires civilian rescue ships to head to Italy after each rescue immediately," the statement reads. "This delays further lifesaving operations, as ships usually carry out multiple rescues over the course of several days." The policy of the Meloni conservative government, which came to power in last October's general election, immediately drew comparisons to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who last year sent illegal migrants to the wealthy, heavily liberal island enclave of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. The move sparked outrage from wealthy residents, with local authorities opting to activate the National Guard in order to have the individuals quickly removed.
