CWN.org - The United Nations observed Human Rights Day this week, marking the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The declaration's article 18 declares, "Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion."

It goes on to say, "We have the right to manifest our religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Christian World News spoke with Michael Cromartie of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom about the importance of this declaration and why countries have fallen short in utilizing it.
