U.S. Ambassador Tweets Support of Holding “No Religious Beliefs” Worldwide, “Free of Persecution & Fear”

Last week, Rabbi David Saperstein tweeted this on International Religious Freedom Day:

On Int’l #ReligiousFreedom Day, we affirm the right to hold no religious beliefs at all, and to do so free of persecution & fear. #humanism

Maybe you’re thinking “That’s nice, but so what?”

It helps to know that Saperstein is the U.S. government’s Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom. He has the ear of Secretary of State John Kerry and President Obama and has the power to bring national awareness to stories like the Bangladeshi blogger attacks and Raif Badawi‘s floggings. Whether the government responds in a meaningful way is another question, but it’s good to know he’s aware of these problems. Let’s hope he’ll also be a vocal advocate for the government to speak out publicly against these actions.
