International Religious Freedom

Family Research Council believes that religious liberty—the freedom to hold religious beliefs of one’s own choosing and to live in accordance with those beliefs—is an inherent human right that all governments have an obligation to protect. No one should be persecuted by state or non-state actors because of their religious beliefs. As a global leader, the United States is in a position to champion the cause of the persecuted and oppressed around the world, and has an obligation to leverage that influence well.
