Labor of Love in Texas, Continued

On September 7 I wrote about the tireless rescuers saving lives during Hurricane (A.K.A. Tropical Storm) Harvey. In particular, I introduced you to International Harbor Foundation (IHF), the organization led by U.S. Special Operations veterans. IHF was created to rescue victims of sex trafficking and abduction, but since Hurricane Harvey made its appearance IHF has devoted its time to helping rescue families trapped by the rising flood waters. Last night the local Fox News television station in Houston did their… Read more

Labor of Love in Texas

Most of us just enjoyed a long holiday weekend. We said goodbye to summer with a cookout at home or one last trip to the beach. But Labor Day weekend was different on the Texas Gulf Coast. As you know, things have been different since Hurricane Harvey hit Houston. So in that flood-drenched region, Labor Day was just another day to try to become accustomed to the new reality — one that no longer includes a home, a car, belongings, stability. It was another day to wake up in a… Read more

Don’t Ignore Khartoum’s Genocidal Ambitions: We Must Keep Sanctions

In his speech announcing the release of the 2016 Annual Report on International Religious Freedom Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called out the Sudan government. “In Sudan the government arrests, detains and intimidates clergy and church members,” Tillerson said. He added that the government “denies permits for the construction of new churches and is closing or demolishing existing ones.” Secretary Tillerson encouraged Sudan to “engage concretely on the religious freedom action plan provided by the department last year.” But that’s… Read more

An Open Letter to George Clooney

Dear George: May I call you that? I feel close to you because I was mere inches away when the police hustled you off the steps of the Sudan Embassy and arrested you in 2012. At that point I was an 18 year veteran of Sudan/South Sudan advocacy. Then last week, you and I shared top billing (just kidding) in the local Washington, DC area news coverage of the Sudan sanction issue. We did it! All of us — members of Congress,… Read more

How Should Christian Schools Respond to Teen Pregnancies?

The cost of Christian schools punishing pregnancies — not so much premarital sex — only perpetuates the shame and secrecy that drives young girls into the alluring arms of abortionists in the first place. Read more

In Her Father’s Footsteps

Last week I attended the Billy Graham Evangelical Association (BGEA) World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians. The summit was the first of its kind in America to my knowledge, and I have been doing advocacy for persecuted Christians for 23 years as Religious Liberty Director at the IRD. There have been many conferences about religious freedom and/or Christian persecution. Some conferences have brought in speakers from other countries, even a few survivors of persecution and imprisonment. But never have we… Read more
