Speaker of the House Mike Johnson urged the Biden administration to take stronger action against international threats to religious freedoms during the annual International Religious Freedom Summit in late January.
“North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, for example, continues to exercise a dark influence in denying all freedoms to his people, especially religious freedom,” Republican Louisiana Rep. Johnson told the crowd during the summit, according to the Washington Stand. “The regime in Myanmar continues to engage in genocidal attacks against the Rohingya Muslims. In Nigeria, Christians and minority Muslims are attacked and killed by mobs of terrorists. Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua and Miguel Diaz-Canel in Cuba hunt down and imprison Catholic priests and Baptist pastors who simply preach the Gospel and speak out against the regime.” (LEARN MORE: Biden Ignores Christian Massacres For 3rd Year In A Row)
Chinese Communist Party
Johnson then singled out the Chinese Communist Party’s attacks against Tibetan Buddhists, Falun Gong practitioners, as well as the Uyghur populations in China. He explained how “in the Uyghur Autonomous Region, Uyghur Muslims are suffering under the Chinese Communist Party’s genocidal campaign of forced sterilization, forced detention and re-education.” (LEARN MORE: Family Breakdown Connected To Collapse Of Christianity, Experts Say)
“Millions of Uyghurs have been detained in these camps where they’re kept in cramped cells, and they’re tortured and brainwashed,” he continued. “At this moment, the U.S. has an opportunity and an obligation to prevent genocide and punish those who commit it.”
“As China makes its forced labor efforts harder to detect, we call on the Biden administration to fully enforce the letter and the spirit of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act,” he noted. “This should not be a partisan issue. We should all be united on this. It’s who we are as Americans. And we must use all of our resources to prevent American involvement in Uyghur genocide.” (LEARN MORE: Biden Sued Over Conservative Censorship)
