Religious freedom is under attack across the globe!
In the last month alone, there are dozens of reports of Christians being persecuted around the world simply because they tried to practice their faith.
Seven Christians were killed in Kenya when the Islamic radical group al-Shabaab raided local villages going door-to-door looking for believers. Police in India just this week arrested, charged with unlawful assembly, and jailed a group of Christians who had gathered for worship service. Our very own State Department recently removed the word “genocide” in official documents discussing the ISIS slaughter of Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq and Syria.
However, President Trump announced yesterday that help is on the way to defend religious freedom across the world as he plans to nominate Kansas Governor Sam Brownback to serve as Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom at the U.S. Department of State.
Faith & Freedom Coalition executive director Timothy Head said, “Governor Brownback has a long, distinguished career as a champion for life, marriage, family, and religious liberty, first as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, then as member of the U.S. Senate, and now as Governor of Kansas.”
Defending religious freedom is a core priority of President Trump’s foreign policy and Faith & Freedom Coalition supports the selection of Governor Brownback to lead America’s efforts to promote religious freedom around the world.
