Baptist Press is reporting that Christian Persecution is mounting in Afghanistan and Iraq. I think this is just amazing….we "spend" the blood of US Soldiers…
…to get independance and freedom for these people and we still allow religious persecution to go on. Insane!
WASHINGTON (BP)–Threats to religious liberty have increased in two Muslim-dominated countries the United States has helped liberate in recent years from totalitarian regimes, a bipartisan government panel said in its latest annual report.
In releasing its 2006 report, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom recommended the same 11 countries it cited last year for designation as the world’s most severe persecutors of religious adherents. It also expressed alarm about the conditions for free religious expression in Iraq and Afghanistan, even adding Afghanistan to a “watch list” of countries that should be closely monitored.
