Last Friday’s standing-room only hearing before the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission was among the most dramatic I’ve witnessed. There was outrage – outrage not just from me as I declared the State Department “AWOL” in our quest to free an American Pastor, Saeed Abedini — a U.S. citizen — captured by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard […]
At a time when there is so much turmoil and growing challenges to our faith and freedom, I want to assure you that our commitment to defending faith and freedom has never been stronger. And, with your assistance, we will continue to make a tremendous difference – protecting the rights given to us by God, and defending the religious freedom that is being denied to so many worldwide.
On this Easter weekend, please keep those who are suffering in your prayers, especially Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani who continues to be illegally imprisoned in Iran because of his Christian faith.
Please pray, too, for our men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces who are facing grave danger defending our liberty and our freedoms on foreign battlefields.
On behalf of everyone at the ACLJ and our international affiliates, I want to express to you and your family our heartfelt gratitude for your support and wish you and yours a very happy and blessed Easter.
