FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
International Christian Concern Supports Special Envoy Legislation; Praises House, Prods Senate
September 27, 2013
Jeff King, President of International Christian Concern, praised the House of Representatives for passing a resolution calling for the creation of a special diplomatic envoy for religious freedom in the Middle East. Mr. King stated that the legislation, which passed with an overwhelming bipartisan majority of 402 to 22, unequivocally signals that the United States will not tolerate the persecution of Christians and other religious minorities.
Mr. King asserted that "the cause of the Christian minority in the Middle East requires more attention and advocacy from the United States Government. Recent governmental and societal changes have eroded or destroyed many of the few protections held by Christian minorities in the region. Many Christians in the region are regarded by national majorities not as fellow citizens, but as extensions of American interests. They are abused accordingly."
International Christian Concern expressed special gratitude to Representative Frank Wolf (VA-10) for sponsoring the legislation, and for his aggressive advocacy in support of religious freedom. Mr. King expressed the hope that the Senate will soon follow the House with an overwhelming bipartisan approval of the resolution.
International Christian Concern is a non-profit organization devoted to raising global awareness of the persecution of Christians, providing relief to the persecuted, and advocating on their behalf.
