A Bridge Between the Strong and the Weak

Who is religious freedom for?

Societies are made of majorities and minorities. Whether by choice or by birth, people belong to groups. We live our lives and express our purpose through religious, racial, political and cultural communities. All of them are different. All have their place. But not all have equal power. Some are bigger, older, richer and better connected than others. This imbalance pits belief systems against each other, but a peaceful society puts the strong and the weak on a level playing field.

A Partner in the Cause of Peace

Countries with more religious freedom have more peace. And countries with less religious freedom have less peace.
