“There has never been a more important time for the United States to promote religious freedom as a cornerstone of our foreign policy, given the global instability caused by the severe religious persecution that 77 percent of the world’s population live under.  There couldn’t be a better person for the job of Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom than Governor Sam Brownback, whose demonstrated commitment to human rights and religious freedom is unquestioned.  As a U.S. Senator, Brownback was a passionate defender of the rights of all people to worship freely, and courageously confronted offenses against human dignity in trouble spots such as North Korea, Iraq, China, Sudan, Vietnam, and Egypt.  At a time when there is an ongoing genocide of Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East, we hope and pray the Senate will act with urgency in a bipartisan fashion and immediately confirm Gov. Brownback.” TCA Senior Policy Advisor, Maureen Ferguson
