WASHINGTON, D.C. - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo today announced the determination that the "People's Republic of China is committing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang, China, targeting Uyghur Muslims and members of other ethnic and religious minority groups."...
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council issued a statement warning one of President Biden's first executive orders would target people of faith and religious organizations. The executive order demands that all federal agencies redefine "sex" to include "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" in their policies against sex discrimination. The order expands upon the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Bostock v. Clayton County, which redefined "sex" in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964....
As this new year begins, it’s obvious that America is facing many challenges—some old, some new. And they most certainly cannot be taken lightly. However, those of us who focus on international religious freedom also concentrate on concerns beyond our shores, and a look at Africa’s recent history in the rear-view mirror reflects terrifying images. As one deadly assault after another fades out of sight, encroaching assailants are rushing forward at terrifying speed. The largest country in Africa and the most commercially significant, Nigeria is the site of what has been described as a slow-motion genocide in which tens of thousands of Nigerian Christians have been massacred in recent years. A Family Research Council report published in July 2020 documents horrifying statistics of mass murders there, almost entirely at the hands of three Islamist terrorist groups: Boko Haram, Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP), and Fulani jihadis.Nigeria may be the worst example of violence against African Christians, but it is far from the only one. Violent incidents across the African continent are increasing. One notorious example in November 2020 was the reported beheading of 50 civilians in Mozambique—many of them Catholic Christians.Fighters linked to Islamic State attacked several villages in Mozambique, killing civilians, abducting women and children, and burning down homes. The gruesome description of innocent people “herded” to their death on a soccer field, where they were systematically decapitated and dismembered, was nightmarish. That wasn’t the only such incident in 2020, and it certainly won’t be the last. Due to a hapless government response, ISIS continues its assaults, most recently on January 2, 2021. In September 2020, an email from New Covenant Missions informed FRC that a Christian family had recently been arrested in Somalia—the infamous location of Black Hawk Down. Local police accused the couple of abandoning Islam, and even more dangerously, of evangelizing the people of Somaliland. According to Somali Bible Society, “The spokesperson’s speech was peppered with threats against local Christians.” We learned that the arrested man had been tortured; his wife had delivered a baby by C-section just weeks before and required urgent medical attention, and the baby needed maternal care and breastfeeding.FRC and other Christian groups pleaded for prayer. Thankfully, we later learned that this courageous family had been released. But dangers to Christians in Somalia have not diminished. Nearly all of the believers there are converts from Islam, which means they can face a death sentence for apostacy if arrested.Frequent reports of persecution incidents in East Africa abound. At the same time, West Africa has more than its share of anti-Christian violence—and is of ever-increasing concern.The Washington Post reported, “One evening in late June, gunmen stormed a village in northern Burkina Faso and ordered people who had been chatting outside to lie down. Then the armed strangers checked everyone’s necks, searching for jewelry. They found four men wearing crucifixes—Christians. They executed them…”Since then, the situation has gone from bad to worse. Burkina Faso is one of several vulnerable West African countries that are frequently targeted for terrorism, including Christian persecution. The so-called “Group of Five” (G5) nations—Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, and Niger—face continuous threats and attacks. These are of deepening concern to international military analysts and religious freedom advocates alike, thanks to the tireless brutality of ISWAP, Boko Haram, and al-Qaeda.Meanwhile, North Africa faces similar dangers. Likewise, reports from East Africa warn that ISIS, al-Shabaab, Ansar al-Sharia, and other Islamist groups are strengthening their numbers and increasing their territory. And unfortunately, what happens in Africa is unlikely to stay in Africa—economically, politically, or militarily. Radicalized Africans have already murdered innocents and torched churches in Europe. Little has been done in response, and most well-intentioned efforts have been largely ineffective.In 2021 it is past time for the world to stop looking regretfully at Africa’s tragedies in the rear view mirror. Instead, a determined coalition of nations needs to step forward and begin to develop ways and means of extinguishing the surging jihadi violence. And it’s essential that our Christian communities continue not only to pray but to demand such action. Why? Because as the wildfire of terrorism continues to rage across that vast, violent continent, one thing is sure: It is Africa’s Christians who will continue to pay the ultimate price for the world’s inaction.
Protesters are putting the pressure on Pence to act on the president's behalf when Congress meets to confirm the Electoral College votes.A die-hard group of Trump supporters hopes 2021 will start with prayer, fasting, and perhaps a miracle.Organizers of the Jericho March, slated for Tuesday and Wednesday, have called on “patriots, people of faith and all those who want to take back America” to travel to Washington on those days for a pair of marches to overturn the recent presidential election.Marchers plan to blow ritual Jewish horns called shofars on the first day before circling the Supreme Court building seven times in imitation of the Israelites’ siege of the city of Jericho described in the Bible’s Book of Joshua. On Wednesday, they plan to do the same around the US Capitol building.The demonstrators will also pray that Vice President Mike Pence and members of Congress will reject slates of electors from Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, and Nevada, where Trump loyalists claim there was rampant election fraud.Courts in those states, along with federal courts, including the US Supreme Court, have rejected a series of lawsuits filed by supporters of President Donald Trump, ruling that there was no evidence of election fraud. Former US Attorney General William Barr told the Associated Press in early December that the Department of Justice had found no evidence of wide-scale election fraud.Preceding the two days of protest, the organizers will hold candlelight prayer vigils and “self-led” marches in the nation’s capital. Similar marches will take place in the states where marchers claim the elections were fraudulent.In mid-December, a rally in Washington organized by the same group of pro-Trump activists featured speakers such as Eric Metaxas and MyPillow founder Mike Lindell.

Here are “The 7” top trending items at FRC over the past seven days:1. Update: Northam Exposure on Virus HypocrisyWhile California, New York, and other states have gone off the deep end on coronavirus restrictions, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam (D) has been unusually quiet. That changed recently, when the radical leader broke his silence with a slew of new rules. And, like every other liberal leader, he didn't mind shaming churches in the process.2. Update: COVID Vaccine: A Promising Start, But Freedom Must Be ParamountIn our current hyper-political climate, the recent release of the first coronavirus vaccination has created hope for some and caused moral, ethical, and medical concerns for others. Chief among these concerns are: was the vaccine ethically created? Is the vaccine effective? And finally, will taking the vaccine be mandatory?3. Blog: China’s Bride Trafficking ProblemCountries that surround China have fallen prey to widespread bride trafficking issues. China’s former “one-child policy,” imposed from 1979 to 2015, along with a cultural preference for sons, has created a skewed male-female ratio and a significant shortage of women. This imbalance fuels human trafficking and prostitution within China.4. Blog: A Christmas Carol for LifeIn Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, a story is told of a callous man named Ebenezer Scrooge who at one point in the story, when referring to the poor and needy, retorts, “If they would rather die … they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.” Unfortunately, we see a very similar ideology playing out today when it comes to the unborn.5. Washington Watch: Sec. Mike Pompeo Warns About the Network of Chinese Operatives Infiltrating American InstitutionsSecretary of State Mike Pompeo joined Tony Perkins to discuss China’s infiltration of American colleges and universities and the State Department's designation of Nigeria as a Country of Particular Concern for the first time.6. Washington Watch: Rep. Doug Lamborn Explains that His Love for America & Its Christian Values Motivates Him Every DayOn this special “Faith & Freedom” edition of Washington Watch, Congressman Doug Lamborn joined Tony Perkins to share how his father demonstrated to him what it is to be a good leader. He also shared his journey of faith and how his biblical worldview has informed his values and policy decisions.7. Pray Vote Stand broadcast: A Call to Prayer for GeorgiaOn this edition of Pray Vote Stand, Tony welcomed Larry Jackson, Emir Caner, and Mark Harris to join him in a special time of prayer for the Georgia runoff election.
