Esther was among many survivors of religious persecution that the State Department brought to Washington, DC for the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom. Here is a fact: More Christians are murdered for their faith in Nigeria every year than all other killings based on religion in the entire world.

A farm of this size cannot feed the 87 children that are currently in the orphanage. But the farm will do more than supply some of the needed food.

In fact, earlier in the year, on New Year’s Day, 72 people died at the hands of a Fulani attack.” Danger grows for Christians in Nigeria, a nation that at one time was nearly 100% Christian.

President Omar al-Bashir of the Sudan has been indicted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) as a war criminal, and there is an international arrest warrant for him. The planning for the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania was done in the Sudan under the watchful eye of this mass murderer, who has long practiced genocide. This same Omar al-Bashir is now apparently a good guy in the eyes of President Donald Trump and his newly found neocon buddies. They recently removed sanctions that had been imposed on the Sudan, even though the murder of Christians continues in the Nuba Mountains under al-Bashir’s rule. The arrest warrant by the ICC for crimes of mass murder in Darfur, and the status of Sudan as a “State sponsor of terrorism” were both still recognized and backed by the United States as recently as May of 2017 under the Administration of President Donald Trump.

There is a battle for our religious liberty here in the United States and in Western Europe as well. Western governments are moving forward to criminalize religious beliefs the elitist establishment disagrees with, and right now the point of the spear in attacking religious freedom is same-sex marriage. The Obama administration may be ready to have the IRS pass rules that would take away the tax-exempt status of social conservative organizations if they say certain types of sexual acts are morally wrong.

The formation of the United States Constitution in 1789 is rooted and grounded in the English Magna Carta. Early American colonists were deeply influenced by this document. It is still an extremely important symbol of freedom and liberty even today. In essence, the Magna Carta became “the law of the land” in the United States of America and the foundation of Western democracy.

The groundswell of support across America rises for the Houston pastors and churches that have had their internal church communications subpoenaed in a blatant act of intimidation by Mayor Annise Parker. Christians across the nation are showing their solidarity with these churches by planning to be a part of I Stand Sunday – a nationwide simulcast on Sunday, November 2nd at 6:00 p.m. CT/7:00 p.m. ET. Live from Grace Community Church in Houston -- one of the affected churches -- "I Stand Sunday" will focus on what's happening there and discuss how Houston is a bellwether for the rest of America. The event’s purpose is to show how Christians nationwide can stand together in love and unity for America's First Freedom of religious liberty.
