What Persecution? China Re-Elected to Human Rights Council

In a shocking decision, China has been re-elected to head up the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) for the next three years.

On January 1, 2021, China will be the top nation on the Human Rights Council for the United Nations. This means they will be leading investigations into human rights abuses, writing reports on religious abuse, and setting the standards for what defines human rights.

China won 139 votes to secure the seat.

The year 2020 has seen the worst persecution against Chinese Christians in 20 years and now China will be in charge of writing the international rule book for how Christians are treated.

This election comes as an explosive report is released from Buzzfeed News that China is running the largest forced labor camps in the world, with at least 135 internment camps in Xinjiang alone.

This election does not cause any anxiety for Christians in China – they have been living with this reality for many years and the persecution that China has exerted on the church has only produced greater revival and church growth.

Eugene

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
