Defamation of Religion Law May Silence Christians

Are you following the news? I mean, the real news. And, are you following world events? It is interesting, as John and I travel the world, I have come to discover that much of the rest of the world is quite knowledgeable and conversant with world events, even those in developing third world nations. At home in America though, I find fewer people taking the time to stay abreast of global events.  At a time such as this, I urge Americans to wake up and pay attention. Global events are impacting law, culture, and religious liberty in America.

Have you heard about the Defamation of Religion resolution? The ACLJ had this to say:

The United Nations (U.N.) is currently considering a ''Defamation of Religions'' resolution being pushed by the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the largest group of nations within the U.N.The resolution would criminalize the proclamation of the Gospel worldwide - an issue with such international ramifications, we've responded with force.We're sending legal teams to our New York City office, which is just down the street from the U.N., in order to speak out - and loudly - against this very anti-Christian move.

You can read an interesting article from USA Today by Jonathan Turley about the Obama Administration’s support of an effort to restrict religious speech that may bear watching. Click here to read.
