Earlier this year, the Vatican called it a credible number. But is it?<br /> <br /> Gunmen on motorcycles kill three people when they open fire on a wedding outside a Coptic Christian church in Cairo. A twin-suicide bombing outside a church in Pakistan kills at least 75 people.<br /> <br /> These two recent headline-grabbing attacks occurred within just a month of each other. Horrific, but by no means isolated incidents.<br /> <br /> So how widespread is anti-Christian violence?<br /> <br /> "Credible research has reached the shocking conclusion that every year an estimate of more than 100,000 Christians are killed because of some relation to their faith," Vatican spokesman Archbishop Silvano Maria Tomasi announced in a radio address to the United Nations Human Rights Council in May.<br /> <br /> On the internet, the statistic has taken on a life of its own, popping up all over the place, sometimes with an additional detail - that these 100,000 lives are taken by Muslims.<br /> <br /> The number comes originally from the Center for the Study of Global Christianity (CSGC) at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in the US state of Massachusetts, which publishes such a figure each year in its Status of Global Mission (see line 28).<br /> <br /> Its researchers started by estimating of the number of Christians who died as martyrs between 2000 and 2010 - about one million by their reckoning - and divided that number by 10 to get an annual number, 100,000.<br /> <br /> But how do they reach that figure of one million?<br /> <br /> When you dig down, you see that the majority died in the civil war in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

While Christian congregations age, most British mosques are bringing more and more young people on board.<br /> <br /> Public mosque services attract thousands of British Muslims, but when you check out a church, there are hardly a dozen participants at Sunday morning worship, RT’s Polly Boiko reports from London.<br /> <br /> “The decline of churches in the UK is long term, now it just happens to be approaching rock bottom. So 95 percent of people don’t attend church on an average Sunday. Christian worship is already the concern of a tiny minority of people,” Andrew Copson, chief executive of the British Humanist Association, told RT.<br /> <br /> “I think over time even the weak cultural identity that still seems to be associated with Christianity will banish away, probably all over Europe, not just in the UK,” Copson added.<br /> <br /> The British Muslim population has surged dramatically over the past 15 years, increasing by 75 percent. According to the latest data from the Office for National Statistics, Muslims have the youngest age profile of the religious groups, with 48 percent (1.3 million) aged under 25.<br /> <br /> Dr. Muhammad Abdul Bari, Honorary Chairman of one of the largest mosques in the UK, the East London Mosque, believes that’s because Islam’s family values are “really bonded, and families really try to nurture young people in the folds of Islam.”<br /> <br /> <a href="http://rt.com/news/muslims-uk-church-christianity-005/">http://rt.com/news/muslims-uk-church-christianity-005/</a> Is the US still divided by race? tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2013-08-29:2182797:Video:2293335 2013-08-29T22:39:34.909Z Napoleon Bonaparte http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/napoleonbonaparte <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/is-the-us-still-divided-by-race"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/artf-18kvwoDhbBfZ96EJ4xi4vbD8VV2cl37dYbzGvsjvtCxcvrJHBFwMOcd6VAxGnYlJYWb6ee4CQJhoABnspFfdsYRaUoM/1036628791.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>It has been 50 years since Martin Luther King Junior delivered his historic "I have a dream" speech.

They were four words that changed the course of US history, but today questions remain about whether his vision has been realised.<br /> <br /> It was August 28, 1963, and a quarter of a million Americans had marched to the Lincoln memorial in Washington DC to demand civil rights, jobs and freedom.<br /> <br /> The Reverend Martin Luther King Junior was among the leaders of the so-called Big Six civil rights organisations. And his 17-minute-long, partially improvised address, struck a chord. It is now regarded as one of the most influential speeches of the 20th century.<br /> <br /> King declared that he had a dream of racial tolerance, where people would not be judged by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character. He said: "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."<br /> <br /> The speech and march helped spur the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act a year later.<br /> <br /> But what is the perception of equality in the US now?<br /> <br /> A study published by the Pew Research Centre just last week found that 49 percent of Americans feel "a lot more" needs to be done to achieve racial equality. That number climbed to 79 percent among African-Americans.<br /> <br /> Around three quarters of the black and white people questioned say the two races get on "very well" or "pretty well". But only one-in-four African-Americans say the situation for black people is better now than it was five years ago.<br /> <br /> Speaking at a rally to mark the anniversary of his father's speech, Martin Luther King III said the struggle was far from over.<br /> <br /> Martin Luther King Junior was born on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia. At 25, he became pastor of a Baptist church in Montgomery, Alabama, which is where a black woman was famously arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a bus. King came to prominence by organising a boycott of buses by African-Americans in the town.<br /> <br /> He went on to establish the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1957, and delivered his 'Dream’ speech, as the group's president in 1963.<br /> <br /> King received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, for his efforts to combat racial inequality. Four years later he was shot dead in Memphis at the age of 39. But his achievements were further recognised after his death, when he was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal.<br /> <br /> But has his dream of a US no longer divided by race been realised? And what will it take for that dream to be fulfilled?<br /> <br /> To discuss this, Inside Story, with presenter Jane Dutton, is joined by guests: Avis Jones-DeWeever, an author, social commentator and host of the radio show Focus Point, which examines issues of race, gender and politics; and Rosa Clemente, a community organiser and hip hop activist, who stood as vice presidential candidate for the Green Party in 2008.<br /> <br /> "It's definitely not a dream fulfilled .... But [it] is ... always important to commemorate what was the culmination of almost 100 years of struggle ... if Dr King was alive right now, he wouldn't be even invited to commemorate his own words .... "<br /> <br /> "This was a march on justice and freedom, this was not only about racial equality but it was also about economic justice. In the latter part of his life, Dr King talked about America being … in a perpetual war, and we have been in perpetual war, and I think the idea that at this moment our president along with his cabinet is preparing a strike on another country to perpetuate another war, [and] today they are [also] honouring what Dr King and that whole movement was about, to me seems hypocritical."<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/insidestory/2013/08/201382955943520320.html">http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/insidestory/2013/08/201382955943520320.html</a> Pentecostal pastor told me water would cure my HIV tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2013-08-16:2182797:Video:2287281 2013-08-16T20:36:01.938Z Napoleon Bonaparte http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/napoleonbonaparte <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/pentecostal-pastor-told-me-water-would-cure-my-hiv"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/AgrwBePMoLCSl6Q4ghp5aNqzQv4*MlR8hSa0fn4wvoTevvWMHokBxMzL5N3*qDKTyn5XM7*R2OSb223--apQGNCcQnErUstg/1034805426.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Doctors have warned that patients with HIV are giving up their medicine after being told by Pentecostal church pastors to rely on faith in God instead.<br></br> <br></br> Medical staff working with children and young people say the lives of some church members are being put in danger because they are wrongly being told they can be cured.<br></br> <br></br> In one case, an… <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/pentecostal-pastor-told-me-water-would-cure-my-hiv"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/AgrwBePMoLCSl6Q4ghp5aNqzQv4*MlR8hSa0fn4wvoTevvWMHokBxMzL5N3*qDKTyn5XM7*R2OSb223--apQGNCcQnErUstg/1034805426.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Doctors have warned that patients with HIV are giving up their medicine after being told by Pentecostal church pastors to rely on faith in God instead.<br /> <br /> Medical staff working with children and young people say the lives of some church members are being put in danger because they are wrongly being told they can be cured.<br /> <br /> In one case, an HIV-sufferer was given a plastic bottle of water by his pastor and told it would heal him. He later stopped taking his medicine and his condition worsened.
