Proclaim Freedom

If you are concerned about human rights and religious freedom, please sign this petition! Freedom-loving bloggers, feel free to reblog!

Barnabas Aid, an organization that works to stop Christian persecution, has began the Proclaim Freedom campaign that gives concerned people the chance to step up and do something about this injustice. Their website says:

Barnabas Aid’s Proclaim Freedom campaign will run to the end of 2012 and will seek to raise the profile of the persecuted Church around the world. It will have two specific aims:

To press governments to be active in promoting human rights in other countries for all minorities, but especially religious freedom for the roughly 200 million Christians living under the shadow of persecution, discrimination and disadvantage

To press governments to work to ensure that other countries bring to justice citizens who either incite anti-Christian hatred or engage in anti-Christian violence

I’ve discussed my thoughts on the horrors Christians are experiencing in a previous post, Reading the news feed on Barnabas Aid’s website this week, I learned of more torture, murder, dismemberment, acid attacks, destruction of property, the outlawing of churches, and the poverty facing the oppressed. This frenzied hatred towards Christians is growing– and most of the world remains silent.

We’re busy people, but it just takes a moment to let your voice be heard. Pass it on– and thank you for standing up for freedom!


The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: “If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?” But… the good Samaritan reversed the question: “If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?”
