    Japan's Country Towns Were Dying, Then COVID Happened

    VICE Asia


    Rural Japan has been on a long, steady decline for decades, but the pandemic now has some seriously considering a life outside the cities. For three straight months, the number of people leaving Tokyo outpaced those moving in—a new trend that could breathe some much-needed life back into Japan’s dying towns.

    But in a shrinking country where, in some towns, empty homes can outnumber neighbors, can the country dream become a reality?

    Making $10/Video to Impersonate Jesus

    VICE Asia


    He used to work as a wedding videographer. But now he's Jesus Christ.

    In this episode of SIDE HUSTLES, watch the incredible rise of the only verified Jesus impersonator on the internet as he spreads his gospel through custom video messages — and tries to keep his actual life from falling apart.

    And speaking of ...

    Evangelical Christians in the USA

    DW Documentary



    Evangelical Christians often have a huge impact on American politics. Many of these people are socially conservative, consider themselves patriots, and believe that Americans have a constitutional right to own guns.

    This documentary explores the core beliefs of America's fundamentalist Christians - including the concept of creation, as opposed to evolution. Our report features interviews with conservative evangelicals who, for example, believe that God created the world in six days about 6,000 years ago.

    Our reporters traveled to the state of Kentucky to visit a Creation Museum and a Christian theme park that features a life-size model of Noah's Ark.

    Christian churches in the US play a major social role, especially in rural areas. They operate schools and universities, and organize music festivals that celebrate their faith.

    Most fundamentalist Christians are opposed to abortion, pre-marital sex, and homosexuality. They believe that those who engage in these activities will be condemned to Hell. And some have formed paramilitary groups to defend themselves against those whom they perceive as enemies - including non-believers, Communists, and Muslims.
