First Things: The Crisis In International Religious Freedom

Oct. 6, 2015
Essay by David Corey, Ph.D., associate professor of political philosophy in Baylor’s College of Arts & Sciences, who writes about two recent lectures at Baylor on religious persecution and lack of American concern given by former congressman Frank Wolf, now The Jerry and Susie Wilson Chair of Religious Freedom at Baylor, and Princeton Professor Robert P. George, who currently serves as the Chair of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. “If Americans do not care about the state of religious liberty around the world, neither will their government, nor will the leaders of other nations,” Corey writes. “Americans have historically been the most outspoken proponents of religious liberty in modern history. Should we fall silent now, either out of ignorance or apathy, the effects will be disastrous.”
