The Trump administration has just broken new ground in the fight to advance mankind’s divinely conferred and unalienable right to religious freedom.
Yesterday, President Trump and Vice President Pence explicitly held the Turkish government accountable for its persecution of Pastor Andrew Brunson, an American. Even more importantly, these leaders made clear that there would be "consequences" and "large sanctions" on Turkey if it doesn’t free the pastor who is now under house arrest after nearly two years of brutal incarceration on preposterous charges.
The Save the Persecuted Christians Coalition believes that by applying such techniques far more broadly, the U.S. and other governments can create powerful disincentives to the persecutors, and perhaps enduring, systemic relief to their victims — including the 215 million Christians around the world who do not enjoy Pastor Brunson’s celebrity.
