Earlier this year, the Senate, along partisan lines, confirmed former Kansas governor Sam Brownback to be Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom. Ambassador Brownback leads the Trump administration's newly created Office of International Religious Freedom, which is under the umbrella of the State Department and charged with promoting religious freedom as a foreign policy objective.
Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Vice President Mike Pence hosted the first Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom at the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C. The attendees discussed ways to combat religious persecution and discrimination and to protect religious freedom around the world. This was a historic first for any country in the world, and representatives of international organizations from over 80 countries attended!
Ambassador Brownback stated the ministerial was "the launch of an expanded conversation" about the fundamental right of all individuals to religious freedom. It is a right, he said, with which no government should interfere. He announced the release of the Potomac Declaration and the Potomac Plan of Action and encouraged the international community to draw on the plan of action's provisions when responding to violations and abuses of religious freedom or instances of persecution on account of religion or belief.
I am proud that the United States, under the Trump administration, was the first country to host this historic Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom because innocent people around the world are imprisoned, tortured and persecuted for their faith. Christians and religious minorities are suffering more persecution than at any time in history. I am grateful for leaders who are encouraging religious freedom and protecting people of faith instead of trying to control them.
+ + Kudos to President Trump!
Right now we are at a time in our nation when the outspoken adversaries of the Trump presidency, his policies, his administration, and his nominees, have the mainstream media's megaphones. There are few outlets reporting the good being done by the Trump administration, like this historic advance of religious liberty.
Liberty Counsel Action unashamedly stands with President Trump's mission to advance liberty, life, faith, and family — and to restore a Constitution-based government!
We are just 6,500 signatures away for rallying a grassroots army of 50,000 citizens to push back against these outrageous attacks on President Trump.
WE CAN MEET AND EXCEED THAT GOAL THIS WEEKEND IF YOU AND OTHER FRIENDS OF LIBERTY COUNSEL ACTION take a minute and sign our important "Vote of Confidence" in President Trump and his pro-faith, pro-family, and pro-life agenda.
I believe it's vitally important for people of faith to stand in support of our president right now.
Thank you for standing with us.
Yours for liberty,
