Last week, the US State Department released its 2015 International Religious Freedom Report. As usual, the annual report listed offenders where religious freedoms are at their worst. The same top offenders of China, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and North Korea remained unchanged.Speaking at the release of the report on Wednesday, Deputy Secretary of State Anthony Blinken stated, “No nation can fulfill its potential if its people are denied the right to freely choose and openly practice their faith.”No, it’s not a mistake. But, have not the citizenry become accustomed to the hypocrisy of this administration, the political elite, and those behind the scenes controlling the politicians? Yes, we have; and, we have to the point of brushing it off as the “SS/DD” activity carried out by this administration. No, the conditions here in the united States are nowhere near the severity of these other nations. However, the path to oppression is taken one step at a time – small and minor at first, but incrementally increasing as the population steps back at each push.
