The Wall Street Journal: “A New Movement Against Religious Persecution”
The Wall Street Journal has an excellent “Houses of Worship” column by Rabbi Sacks called “A New Movement Against Religious Persecution.” Here is an excerpt:
“According to the Religious Freedom in the World Report 2014 by the Catholic Church’s Aid to the Church in Need organization, freedom of religion has deteriorated in almost half the countries of the world, and sectarian violence is at a six-year high. Yet freedom of religion is one of the basic human rights, as set out in Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. …
The world needs a new, enlightened movement: of people of all faiths working together for the freedom of all faiths.”
