OPEN DOORS USA LAUNCHES PETITION CAMPAIGN FOR JUSTICE IN NIGERIA 
Recently, Open Doors USA Advocacy began a campaign to gather signatures, asking the Nigerian government to launch a thorough investigation of the recent slaughter of 500 Christians, to hold the perpetrators to account for their involvement in these crimes and ensure that the victims receive compensation for the crimes committed against them. In early March, ethnic Fulani Muslims attacked three villages near Jos which resulted in the deaths of up to 500 Christians and the burning of about 75 homes. Help our brothers and sisters in Nigeria today!

Dear Donna Matthews,
 map
Christian women in some Islamic countries are being abducted and coerced into marrying Muslim men. This is especially prevalent in Egypt where ICC has learned of over 300 documented cases where Coptic women have been kidnapped, forced into marriage, and the police take no action to return them to their families. If she is located, the police insist she voluntarily converted and married, irregardless of the fact that many of these girls are minors and it is illegal for them to marry without family consent.
 
Once abducted, these girls are literally captives, bound to a life of servitude. Please join ICC in bringing attention to the tragic and ongoing abduction of Coptic Christian women in Egypt by signing the petition.
 
Please follow the instructions below and have your signatures back to us by July 30.
 
Here's How You Can Help
 
#1 Pray: The first thing you can do to help is stop right now and ask the Lord to intervene in both these cases and others that are developing.
 
#2 Next, review our petition. You will find a more detailed account of the incident.
 
#3 Electronically sign the petition by clicking here.
 
#4 Print out the petition and take it to your friends and church and have everyone you know sign it. Send it back to us so we can send it to the Egyptian Ambassador.
 
Feel free to print out extra signature pages for large numbers of sign ups. When you have collected all your signatures, please mail the signature pages to:

or fax them to us at (301) 585-5918.

Dear friend,

There’s still time to take action to stop the passage of the UN Defamation of Religions Resolution (DoRR). We’ve had a great start to this campaign, but we need your voice to help make it a success. The DoRR is likely to be coming up for a vote soon at the UN so please take a moment to help stop its passage!

This resolution criminalizes 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.


Take A United Stand For Those Who Aren't FREE to BELIEVE


Christians who make truth claims or evangelize can be accused of “defamation” and those individuals can be punished under national blasphemy laws. Members of minority faiths such as Christians are frequently falsely accused of “defamation” to settle personal scores or to shut down any criticism of Islam. This has happened in countries like Pakistan and Egypt. Sadly, the Defamation or Religions Resolution provides legitimacy to these national blasphemy laws.

You can see what a precarious situation our brothers and sisters are in worldwide. That’s why we’re asking you to send a message to your legislator, asking him/ her to ask key countries to change their vote on the Defamation of Religions Resolution. A sample letter is provided for you to send.

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

Advocating with you,
Lindsay Vessey

FREE TO BELIEVE: Open Doors USA recently launched an advocacy campaign asking our supporters to speak out against the UN Defamation of Religions resolution.   Supporters can send messages to their elected officials from our website using a pre-written letter. This resolution essentially amounts to the UN condoning state sponsored persecution of Christians and other minority faith groups. Voice your opposition to this resolution and share why you think freedom of religion is important.
