ICLA Will Be Participating in Today’s Prayer March for Persecuted Christians in Orlando, Florida

By • on May 17, 2014


Today ICLA participates in a Prayer March for Persecuted Christians in Orlando.  The march to highlight the plight of persecuted Christians around the world will start at Eola Park Forum, 512 E Washington Street will begin at 6.30pm local time.

ICLA is concerned about the impact that some sharia principles have on religious freedom.  Many atrocities around the world have been committed in the name of sharia and ICLA wants to see these brought to an immediate end.  Much of our participation at the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Human Dimension meetings are devoted to this end.  By participating in this march, ICLA wants to send a message of support to the many people around the world who suffer religious persecution and have their freedom of worship undermined.

Here are some headlines that outline the plight of Christians in particular:
