The promotion of religious freedom around the world got a major lifeline this week after the U.S. State Department on Tuesday, the start of the Ministerial conference on the Religious freedom.
Analysts said one of the most important, if not the most, amazing thing about the conference is that it happened at all.
Never before has there been a meeting of so many high-ranking officials and their delegations, plus activists and NGO’s, for the purposes of the religious freedom.
Ambassador Sam Brownback, America’s Ambassador-at-large for religious freedom, the start of the Ministerial conference on Tuesday morning.
“Religious freedom is truly, really and for all. It is a right given by God and is a beautiful part of our human dignity said,” Brownback.
It is a Testament to the fact that the USA thinks that it is a high priority — but also that the freedom of religion around the world eroding, and more and more countries are looking for solutions.

“The lack of religious freedom anywhere is a threat to the peace, stability and prosperity everywhere,” Brownback said in his opening speech to the delegates. “The right to freedom of religious and the ability to live according to the dictates of our own soul, is under attack in the world. This must change and that is why you are here.”…

“It seems now John was set up for arrest because of his faith-driven work and accused of a fabricated crime, facilitating border crossing — a charge that is usually given to people retailers,” Powell said organized.
Two, that you hear, such as the access to the resources available to help you with the help of the persecuted.
And three, the State Department considers to be a top issue that the government officials understand the close link between the promotion of freedom of religion, and the reduction of terrorism and the increase of stability in their countries.
