We believe every human being should have the right to choose and practice their faith freely. The right to be free to believe.
For millions of Christians today that right does not exist. They live in repressive countries where Christians are routinely arrested, tortured, even murdered.
The UN Defamation of Religions Resolution threatens the freedom of religion and expression for Christians and members of minority faiths worldwide.
It seeks to criminalize words or actions perceived as attacks against a religion, with the focus being on protecting Islam.
Passing this resolution results in the UN condoning state-sponsored We need you to voice your protest of this resolution!and members of other minority faith groups.

Who is behind the resolution?
The countries supporting this resolution are, ironically, the very Islamic-majority countries of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) that persecute Christians and other minority faiths. Members of minority faiths such as Christians or Jews who make truth claims or even evangelize can be accused of "defamation" and can be punished under national blasphemy laws.
History of the Resolution
While Defamation of Religions Resolutions have been introduced and passed previously, it is up again this year for a vote. The resolution lost support in the UN General Assembly vote during the last couple of years and we think this year may be the tipping point.
Your voice makes a difference
We need to encourage key countries to change their vote on this resolution. These countries are not easily influenced by American citizens. But they are more receptive to pressure from our federal legislators. So ask your legislator to pressure key countries to change their vote on the Defamation of Religions Resolution today!
