WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom has called upon President Obama for a clear and direct response concerning countries that have egregiously violated religious freedoms, according to BarnabasAid.
The USCIRF monitors abuses of religious freedom worldwide; it annually provides a report of the worst offenders and makes recommendations regarding "countries of particular concern," a designation that requires the U.S. to impose sanctions against them.
The report revealed that U.S. policy provided few incentives for CPC-designated governments to "end their egregious violations of religious freedom because no new Presidential actions pursuant to CPC designations have been levied … the designation of … CPC must be followed by the implementation of a clear, direct and specific Presidential action."
For example, the only specific executive action Obama took was to supply Egypt with fighter planes and tanks after it's Muslim Brotherhood controlled government consistently failed to protect religious minorities, particularly Christians, while at the same time prosecuting them for allegedly defaming Islam.
