Yet one brave teen named Leah Sharibu remains a prisoner because she won’t renounce her Christian faith. Nigerian... read more

Don’t Prosecute Our Soldiers – Defend Our Heroes


It’s disturbing and infuriating to the core. Our soldiers face a grave new threat, and it’s not from the terrorists.

The same ICC that has repeatedly attempted to wrongfully prosecute Israeli soldiers for defending the Israeli people now has its targets set on American heroes. Our soldiers have bravely fought for our freedom – and the freedom of so many around the... read more

Christians in Nigeria live in a constant state of terror, fearing abduction, torture, and murder by radical Islamic jihadists.

Defend Students’ Religious Liberty at School


Christian students face growing anti-Christian harassment at school. Their Christianity is treated like a virus. The Bible is banned; they are called out in class for expressing their faith; the cross is treated as contraband. Bible clubs are banned or ostracized by school officials. One little elementary school girl was banned from drawing a picture of Jesus, had her Bible confiscated, and was instructed she could never even mention her faith at school. A little boy was repeatedly threatened... read more
