    ~ Wednesday, August 8, 2018



    Remarks as prepared for delivery Thank you all for being here. On behalf of the President of the United States, Donald Trump, I want to thank all of you for your work for and commitment to religious freedom at such a time as this. As President Trump said to the National Prayer Breakfast last year, “freedom of religion is a sacred right, but it is also…under threat all around us…I’ve never seen it so openly [threatened].” This is a problem around the world. In the Middle East, some religious minorities like the Yazidis and Christians, after centuries of coexistence with religious majorities, are facing the possibility of extinction. In Russia, it is illegal to be a Jehovah’s Witness or to publish their translation of the Bible. In the Philippines, three Catholic priests have been assassinated so far this year. In June, a priest was shot to death at the altar right in front of the congregation. According to Pew Research, 82 countries have “high” or “very high” restrictions on religion. These facts reflect a rise in religious persecution in areas of the world where religious groups have been able to live peacefu
