Blog: Report: Religious freedom under attack around the world

What's new?

Egypt is one of those nations whose rhetoric about religious freedom sounds sweet to the ears, but where reality for Coptic Christians is a nightmare. Police look the other way as Coptic clergy are murdered and churches burned.

China has been on a church-closing rampage. They recently tore down 400 crosses in a bid to drive Christians underground.
Of course, the focus of religious intolerance is the Islamic State. The muted response by the West to the savage attacks on non-Muslims is shameful and must change.

The State Department should take the advice of the commission and expand the list of “countries of particular concern,” shining a light on these nations that persecute Christians and others.
