  1. Freedom to live our faith is under attack in every nation on the planet. This is partly due to the growing believe among secularists (whose influence and power in the world is growing rapidly) that religion is to blame for most of the blood-shed, violence, and oppression in the world.

    As people of faith, we are very entrenched in our beliefs, unwavering in our convictions, and generally intolerant of other ways of life other than our own.

    Yet, this is as it should be. Faith is belief, and if it is true belief it ought to be unwavering. Agnostics, atheists, secularists cannot comprehend why we are this way.
    One day God himself will straighten all of this out, and rule us Himself. Until then, there will be division, misunderstanding, and violence.

  2. What is the Fund’s position on individuals that are atheist, agnostic or secular humanists and want the freedom to practice their beliefs free of state supported religions or religious imagery.

    Secondly, are their any religious groups that you would exclude from your policy of defending all religions?

    Thank you for the information.
