Religious freedom champion Nina Shea called out U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken Monday, asserting his alteration of America’s human-rights policy “does a grave disservice to millions who are persecuted for their faith.” Shea, director of the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, said that by downplaying the importance of religious liberty, Blinken “is bowing to trends in domestic partisan political fashions, not responding to realities in a world where the need to oppose religious persecution has become ever more urgent.” At the March 30 release of the State Department’s annual human-rights reports, Blinken made a special point to “repudiate” the prior administration’s emphasis on religious freedom, Shea noted in an article in National Review . Nina Shea, director of the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, says religious freedom “has a place of primacy in American history, law, political tradition, and culture.” (AP/Hillery Smith Garrison) … [Read more...] about Nina Shea: Secretary Antony Blinken Does ‘Grave Disservice’ to Persecuted Believers
