Lawmakers Take Action to Protect Persecuted Christians

Ad Feedback

The House of Representatives has passed overwhelmingly a measure creating a special envoy for religious minorities in South Central Asia and the Middle East.

The envoy would help develop policy options to ensure the protection of minority faith communities, as well as serve as a high-level advocate with the U.S. and foreign governments.

Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., and Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., sponsored the legislation. Wolf said an envoy is needed to protect Baha'is in Iran, Ahmadi Muslims in Pakistan, and Christians in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan.

How can a special envoy for religious minorities help Christians across the Middle East and parts of Asia? Nina Shea, director of the Center for Religious Freedom at the Hudson Institute, answers this and more on Christian World News, Sept. 27.
