Urgent Times

Five billion of the world's people face religious persecution. And about a third of people live in places where religious freedom is severely restricted. Violations range from marginalization, imprisonment, violence, torture, to even beheadings.

"All nations should care about abuses beyond their borders, not only for humanitarian reasons, but because what goes on in other nations rarely remains there. In the long run, there is only one permanent guarantor of the safety, security and survival of the persecuted and vulnerable. It is the full recognition of religious freedom."

U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom
