Appointing an Ambassador for Religious Freedom

content_ambassadorpic.jpg

We are calling for the appointment of an Ambassador for International Freedom of Religion or Belief.

Almost 75% of the world’s population live in countries with high levels of government restrictions on freedom of religion or belief. In many of these countries people are killed or tortured because of their faith.   

Freedom of religion is a human right, as outlined in Article 18 of the UNCHR. That’s the freedom to choose religion, change religion or hold no religion.

Help us to make the liberal voice of religious tolerance and peace louder.

    Freedom of religious belief and practice is a basic human right. People should not be dying or discriminated against because of their faith so I absolutely agree with making this a manifesto commitment.

    I strongly support this idea in a world where Secularism is often assumed in the UK, and conformity with the religion of the dominant group demanded in many other lands – both threatening freedom
