Open Doors USA which advocates for the persecuted church is asking all of the 2012 presidential candidates to sign a pledge that they will protect religious freedom.
“The pledge states that the presidential candidates will protect religious freedom in the United States and will appoint federal judges who will also uphold freedom for all faiths. A signature also means that the candidate will promote religious freedom in U.S. foreign policy.”
Sen. Rick Santorum was the first candidate to sign the Presidential Pledge for Religious Freedom.
Open Doors said the pledge has also been endorsed by over 30 non-governmental organizations and individuals. The pledge will help candidates know how important religious freedom is toe Americans.
