Global Baptists Urged to Observe Human Rights DayDecember 08, 2016
Ethics Daily ran a piece today about an effort to get Baptists to recognize Human Rights Day. Pushed by the Baptist World Alliance (BWA), the initiative encourages churches to remember the importance of human rights and those whose rights are not respected.
The Ethics Daily article, Global Baptists Urged to Observe Human Rights Day, quotes me and includes a photo I took during a BWA meeting in South Africa. The article also includes comments from Elijah Brown (general secretary of the North American Baptist Fellowship) and the late ethicist Glenn Stassen.
As I say in the article, "We must use our voices to speak for and with those whose basic human and religious rights are denied by governments."
