Senator Durbin is Against Religious Freedom
It sure seems that way. Illinois Senator Dick Durbin has been holding out on the re-authorization of H.R. 2867. If re- authorized it would once again fund the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), a commision which has been instrumental in monitoring religous freedom all over the world. According to published reports Senator Durbin has been holding out because he rather build a Federal prison in his home state that will house terrorists.
If the USCIRF ceases to exist all Christians in the world will be wiped out by their enemies. And if Durbin does not support religious freedom the next step will be to eliminate religious freedom in the United States. I have said it once and I will say it again--everyone should have the freedom to believe in any faith of their choosing. The playing field should be equally leveled and let God choose His people. No one should be discriminated or oppressed for what they believe in.
In the past, when I dealt with Durbin's office they were very helpful. I was very pleased with his work until now. It does not make any sense to me that he would do this. So please call his office ASAP to have him re-authorized H.R. 2867. His number is 202-224-2152. Please call his office today!
