Fortnight for Freedom: Defending Religious Liberty on Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Fortnight for Freedom: Defending Religious Liberty on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 June 24, 2014


We are in the Fortnight for Freedom.

This annual event is sponsored by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. It’s purpose is to promote an awareness of the threats to religious liberty in America today, and to encourage Catholics in every walk of life to stand up for our precious freedom of religion.

Freedom of religion is one of the cornerstones in the great American experiment in government of, by and for the people. Without religious freedom, all other freedoms are meaningless.


What one thing can you and I do today, Tuesday, June 24, 2014, to stand for religious liberty?

You are already doing something important by reading this blog post and informing yourself about the issue.


For today’s action on behalf religious freedom, I’m going to suggest that we turn our attention overseas, to a part of the world where religious freedom is considered anathema. In particular, I am asking you to contact the Sudanese Embassy in Washington DC on behalf of Meriam Ibrahim.

Mrs Ibrahim was sentenced to death for the crime of marrying a Christian. She was 8 months pregnant at the time. The Sudanese court freed her yesterday. She and her family were re-arrested the airport today.

Email, call or write the Sudanese Embassy and tell them that you support Mrs Ibrahim and request that the Sudanese government release both her and her family.

You can contact the Sudanese Embassy by email here.

You can contact the Sudanese Embassy by phone or letter here:

  1. How come this fell under the radar this year? There was no advertisement for it. It’s already three days into the fortnight. I will certainly pray for Mrs Ibrahim.

  2. I feel that there is still work to be done. I’m glad that this woman was freed because killing her would have been a really bad move on the part of Sudan. Let’s pray that more people participate in Fortnight for Freedom to bring awareness to our brothers and sisters in other nations who have to deal with this issue. I will write a letter and maybe an email in addition, to the embassy but I do not know yet how I am going to word the letter. It’s of great importance to me so I’m going to be careful. I hope there’s still enough time.
