MOROCCO CAMPAIGN UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who has taken action to support religious freedom in Morocco! Open Doors supporters have been sending messages to their U.S. Representatives and Senators asking them to sign a letter to the King of Morocco. This letter, sponsored by Rep.  Frank Wolf, asks King Mohammad VI to put an end to the deportation of foreign Christians from Morocco, and permit those who have been deported to return. The letter is closing to signatures at the end of September so please work with us to get as many signatures as possible before the deadline. This letter is also a scored item in Open Door’s new Preliminary Scorecard on International Religious Freedom

The Nepal Committee on Fundamental Rights and Directive Principles has proposed a ban on all activities that might encourage another to convert. Allegedly, this would not punish one for converting, but there is ambiguity as to how the law will be interpreted by officials.  Christians are concerned it will be used to curtail full freedom of religion.

ALERT! LEGISLATIVE ALERT! LEGISLATIVE ALERT! ALERT!

Dear friend,

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 persecution of Christians and members of other minority faith groups. We need you to voice your protest of this resolution!

A sample letter is provided for you to send that includes the necessary information for your elected officials to lobby the target UN country missions.

Please send your message today and stand up to efforts by the UN to restrict religious freedom worldwide!

In Christ,
Lindsay Vessey

Take Action

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!
