The First Freedom: Promoting International Religious Liberty

Saturday, May 29, 2010 8pmProducer: America Abroad MediaListen AgainReligious liberty has been an American institution. But it wasn't until 1998 that Congress commanded the US to promote religious freedom around the globe. And, in a world where religious intolerance and abuse is on the rise, the secular-minded State Department is conflicted over this mission of freeing the faithful and punishing the persecutors. Often, the promotion of religious freedom is sacrificed on the altar of strategic and economic worship. Ray Suarez explores the issue of promoting religious liberty.
