State Department Report Signals Importance of Religious Freedom

Communist China makes the list again. The peaceful middle way hasn’t reached China’s shores yet contrary to what Beijing would like the free world to believe.

Excerpt: The act also requires the State Department to designate countries that have “engaged in or tolerated particularly severe violations of religious freedom” as a “country of particular concern” (CPC). In November, Burma, China, North Korea, Eritrea, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Sudan again were designated as CPCs, having also been on the 2005 list. Uzbekistan also was listed as a CPC. (more)
