THE NEWEST DANGER TO RELIGIOUS FREEDOM COMES NOT FROM OUR OWN GOVT. BUT FROM THE U.N.
I received an Urgent Memorandum from the ACLJ.– RE: SHARE YOUR FAITH, GO TO JAIL.
I’m not making this up. Of all places we need to worry about, you wouldn’t expect the U.N.
A simple vote at the United Nations could make you a criminal if you share your faith.
Radical Islamists are pushing, at the U.N, to pass a “DEFAMATION OF RELIGIONS (DOR) resolution. It looks like a reasonable ban on religious discrimination, a global guarantee of religious freedom BUT: it’s a deception, and it is deadly dangerous. If you share your unique Christian faith…if you assert that faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven, you become an “enemy of Islam,” and you risk arrest, imprisonment, even death.
The resolution would effectively make it illegal to share your faith if you’re a Christian, while simultaneously giving Islam privileged status.
THIS WOULD BE AN ESPECIALLY DANGEROUS MOVE GIVEN THE ESCALATING VIOLENCE AGAINST CHRISTIAN IN MANY MIDDLE EASTERN, AFRICAN, AND EURASIAN NATIONS.
The DOR resolution will effectively apply “blasphemy laws,: already on the books in Muslim nations, to you and your family, and subject Christians like you and those you know to some of the most brutal aspects of Islamic Shariah law.
A U>N> vote could take place at any moment. The ACLJ has been at the forefront of this battle from the beginning. They have dispatched their international team to the U.N. They enclosed a petition to Mr. Ban Ki-moon, U.N. Sec General and John Kerry, Sec of State. Telling them, “the measure stands in stark contrast to the International Bill of Human Rights’ expression of religious freedom. Telling Kerry to instruct Rashad Hussain and Ambassador Samantha Power to oppose, not approve this resolution. They ended by saying to Kerry, ” We urge you to stand for life and freedom all around the world at every opportunity. Let the U.N. focus on improving existing international law to protect the religious rights and free practice thereof for all individuals.”
PLEASE GO TO: www.ACLJ.org to see what else they have to say about this resolution and how you can help. I am going to write to my senators for one thing and return the petition. We cannot allow the U.N. to interfere with our freedom of religion, such as it is, in this Country or any other free Countries. They should be trying to free Christians from persecution with the laws already in place, not make new laws giving the Islamists even more reason to kill Christians.
