'U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom' - a Tragic Failure

Group 'monitors global religious freedom' - somebody tell them the monitors in Israel and Sri Lanka are unplugged!

Confluence of Politics and Religion

(SALEM) - I am horrified by my country again, having just received the latest news release for the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF). Sounds like an important group doesn't it? Well forget it, they are a tool, not an agency; their message is not rooted in truth- only propaganda designed to bolster the progress of the worst religious freedom violators on earth; the exact opposite of what they supposedly represent.

"It’s no coincidence that many of the nations we will recommend to be designated as CPCs are among the most dangerous and destabilizing places on earth," says USCIRF Chair Leonard Leo. "Nations that trample upon basic rights, including freedom of religion, provide fertile ground for poverty and insecurity, war and terror, and violent, radical movements and activities."

Basic rights? Like being able to live as humans, not animals... is that what they mean?

The first thing I looked for was the list of countries of concern; distinctly missing from the list are the two most serious governments that we write about specifically because of their religious/ethnic cleansing, Genocide and apartheid law structure; Israel and Sri Lanka.

But murderers get away with anything if they have a friend in America. They kill and kill and bludgeon little babies to death and then the U.S. turns around and treats them oh-so-nice. Sri Lanka's horrific Genocide against its own Tamil Hindu and Christian population was the subject of a major documentary in the UK that premiered last night.

It was a damned bloodbath.

Wikileaks cables revealed in the program prove that the U.S. knew all about the slaughtering of innocent civilians and chose to do nothing about it. People suffered so badly!

Israel, oh my God... there is not a place in existence like it, that isn't to say it is the only religious bigot government in the world, or the only apartheid government, with separate roads and laws for Jews and non-Jews, how is that by the way for religious discrimination?

To the members of this 'commission', you are not real. People from other countries and journalists view you as guilty of vastly misrepresenting conspiracy to bolster the political governments of friends, not humanitarians.

The worst part is that your agency is directly guilty of murder, by ignoring the vast cruelty and constant murders carried out by the religious governments of Israel and Sri Lanka and yet you name Venezuela as a nation of concern over religion?

Bullshit, just like the idiotic parade of this group of aspiring politicians, and I don't care if they believe they are right, it means nothing, they are not right and they are misusing public trust in the worst way under the color of official capacity.

How can any nation as blatantly dishonest at the United States survive? How can its innocent people survive? Don't worry, in the end they won't.

Religious freedom my ass.
