Subject: Your Plan of Action to Address Religious Persecution
I am writing to ask you to publicly state your plan of action to promote religious freedom for all people, and to address the brutal persecution faced by people of faith throughout the world today.
In recent years, we’ve seen Christians and Yazidis targeted for death at the hands of ISIS in Iraq and Syria. People of all faiths have been displaced in mass numbers throughout the Middle East. In Nigeria, both Muslims and Christians are suffering horrendously as a result of Boko Haram.
According to Open Doors, more than 7,000 Christians were killed for their faith last year. Open Doors estimates that up to 11,500 Christians have been killed in Nigeria between 2006 and 2014, while 13,000 churches have been attacked, destroyed or abandoned. In North Korea, an estimated 50,000 - 70,000 Christians are confined in modern-day concentration camps. In Eritrea, Christians are imprisoned in shipping containers. The list goes on and on.
A recent Harris/Neilsen Poll shows that 3 out of 4 Americans believe that it is important that the next U.S. president be committed to addressing the persecution faced by Christians and others suffering for their faith around the world.
I agree. I believe that the next president of the United States will need to have a clear, strategic plan of action to address religious repression.
This is why I am asking that you publicly voice your plan of action for tackling this important issue, and that you let the American people know specifically how you, as president of the United States, would address the persecution of people of faith throughout the world.
I also want to encourage you to raise the issue of international religious freedom during the presidential debates. Now more than ever, Americans need to hear your voice on this issue.
Thank you for your attention to this crucial matter.
