As you know, we have pushed hard to get out the word about a very dangerous and troubling resolution at the United Nations offered by the Organization of The Islamic Conference – a resolution called “Combating Defamation of Religions.” For more information on the U.N. resolution, click here.
The problem: this resolution actually attacks Christianity and moves to criminalize it. Our attorneys are working on this issue, and the European Centre for Law and Justice (ECLJ) is vigorously opposing this measure. You can read more about the ECLJ’s legal analysis of this resolution by clicking here.
At the same time, I want to let you know that this issue is being talked about in the White House.
One of the first news organizations to cover the importance of this issue, WorldNetDaily, asked a question about this resolution to White House Press Secretary Dana Perino. Here’s the transcript of that exchange:
Question: Les Kinsolving, White House Correspondent, WorldNetDaily. “Thank you, Dana. Two questions. For years, Islamic states have been trying to push through the United Nations a proposal that it’s called “combating the defamation of religion,” which the American Center for Law and Justice has deplored as anti-Christian bigotry, and which the European Center for Law and Justice calls direct violation of international law. And my question: What is the White House position on this?”
Answer: Dana Perino, White House Press Secretary: “I’ll have to check. This is the first I’ve heard of that particular initiative. So we’ll check.”

We have to keep up the pressure. We want the White House to know that this resolution is nothing more than anti-Christian bigotry.
Many thanks to the tens of thousands who already have signed on to our petition opposing this U.N. resolution. If you haven’t done so, you can add your name by clicking here.
