US religious freedom commission granted 4-week reprieve
Catholic World News - November 21, 2011
The United States Senate has granted four weeks of additional funding to the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, a non-partisan body that documents religious-freedom violations around the world.
Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention said that he is “delighted that USCIRF is out of immediate danger of going out of business. However, this is only a temporary stay of execution.”
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has urged the Senate to reauthorize the commission.
