TRUMP'S RELIGIOUS ALLIANCE IS LIKE SPACE FORCE ON EARTH
"President Donald Trump's announcement of a "holy alliance" to combat worldwide attacks is the clarion call for reversing the wholesale slaughter of Christians worldwide and similar to his defense of Christians in the United States, " says Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.
The U.S. State Department's launch of a global coalition to defend religious freedom is a "good first step" in countering a mounting wave of repression against both the faithful and those who choose not to worship, David Curry, the CEO of the Christian aid group Open Doors, told Breitbart News.
Curry, whose charity focuses on helping oppressed Christians and tracks persecution trends through the annual publication of its World Watch List, added that religious persecution is "the issue of our time" and present in nearly every conflict area in the world.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the establishment of the International Religious Freedom Alliance this month, a coalition of 27 countries around the globe that have committed to a set of principles that include both the respect for the freedom of conscience of their citizens and the advocacy for religious freedom abroad. On the list are nations representing North and South America, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, including Senegal, Ukraine, Israel, Albania, and Brazil, among others.
