“The shackles of one man is a burden that needs to lose another.” These are the words of former U.S. Senator Sam Brownback, who has now led the struggle for the development of religious freedom around the world. The new Ambassador spoke about the changes that plans to produce, and what supports his faith.
The Ambassador in matters of international religious freedom Sam Brownback believes his new role the best job in government. He fights for people who are driven beyond belief.
“More than 70% of the world’s population are subjected to severe persecution, he says. For them, attending Church is an act of disobedience. But people still go. You see the dedication in their hearts and understand that he needs to grow in devotion and faith. We must do everything we can to protect the rights of these people. They should not be afraid of the death penalty for going to Church.”
Says latest report on international religious freedom, in the world, little has changed, especially among those organizing the persecution: Saudi Arabia, Turkey, North Korea and Iran. Brownback said that the administration trump wants change. This summer, the Department of state will hold the first Ministerial summit on the issue. They want to provide social and economic evidence that demonstrate that if countries want to fight terrorism, they need religious freedom.
“It’s not just a good American or a human concept. It’s good for your country. I hope all this will help others to see it,” says Brownback.
Brownback says that reading God’s Word helps it to remain mundane. He hopes that other Christians will pray about supporting his work, and begins to write letters to the embassies of those countries that hold Christians in prison.
“The Embassy representative will call your home and say, “We get letters asking about this man. He’s all right?” In the end, they have names and faces. And it can save the lives of these people,” — said the Ambassador in matters of international religious freedom.
20 years after Congress passed the international religious freedom act, Brownback convinced the White house to impose sanctions against countries that are acceptable to religious persecution. He says that without consequences they will continue to do the same.
