Why would the Obama administration do this? Well, they are attacking our religious freedom with the HHS mandate and have done other things to attack the Catholic Church and traditional Christianity so… this administration obviously doesn’t think too much of people’s right to religious freedom here in the USA so why would they care about other countries right to religious freedom? Or whether they’re being persecuted or not? Is this an attempt to hide the fact that the “Arab Spring” has led to widespread persecution of Christians by Muslims? Another coverup? Time and time again Pres. Obama has shown that he favors Muslims over Christians. This is yet one more example of that. Here you can get some insight into Pres. Obama’s faith and to the reason why he favors Muslims over Christians.
From (CNSNews.com) – The U.S. State Department removed the sections covering religious freedom from the Country Reports on Human Rights that it released on May 24, three months past the statutory deadline Congress set for the release of these reports.
The new human rights reports–purged of the sections that discuss the status of religious freedom in each of the countries covered–are also the human rights reports that include the period that covered the Arab Spring and its aftermath.
Thus, the reports do not provide in-depth coverage of what has happened to Christians and other religious minorities in predominantly Muslim countries in the Middle East that saw the rise of revolutionary movements in 2011 in which Islamist forces played an instrumental role.
For the first time ever, the State Department simply eliminated the section of religious freedom in its reports covering 2011 and instead referred the public to the 2010 International Religious Freedom Report – a full two years behind the times – or to the annual report of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), which was released last September and covers events in 2010 but not 2011.
Leonard Leo, who recently completed a term as chairman of the USCIRF, says that removing the sections on religious freedom from the State Department’s Country Reports on Human Rights is a bad idea.
Since 1998, when Congress created USCIRF, the State Department has been required to issue a separate yearly report specifically on International Religious Freedom.
But a section reporting on religious freedom has also always been included in the State Department’s legally required annual country-by-country reports on human rights–that is, until now. More Here
