Vice President Mike Pence lambasted China, Nicaragua, North Korea, Russia and Iran Thursday for their systemic persecution of various faith groups.
"Those nations that reject religious freedom breed radicalism and resentment in citizens. They sowed the seeds of violence within their borders. Violence that often spills over into their neighbors and across the world, and as history has shown too many times those who deny religious freedom for their own people have no qualms trampling upon the rights of other people undermining security and peace across the wide and world, Pence said.
Pence then called for an end to the rising, violent antisemitism in Europe and the U.K. He condemned antisemitic attacks in the U.K., which reached a record high in 2017, and in France, which he claimed averaged four attacks against Jewish citizens per day in the same year. He also lamented the situation in Germany, where Jews have been warned not to wear kippahs in public.
It is remarkable the thing that within the very lifetimes of some French Jews, the same French Jews that were forced by the Nazis to were identifiable Jewish clothing, some of those same people are now being warned by their democratic leaders not to wear identifiable Jewish clothing, Pence said. These acts of violence and hatred and antisemitism must end.

Thank God for Mike Pence, one of the few political voices even on the right who dares to speak out in defense of Christianity. Thank God for his being willing to take the ridicule for trying to avoid even the appearance of evil (which gives the left no room to try to hang incidents of moral turpitude on him, so they ridicule him for not giving them the ammo).
Auditioning a bit early.
Thank GOD for PRESIDENT TRUMP who is not afraid to put sanctions on countries with human rights abuses.
Great man..great stand.
Uh oh.....Putin pecker puffers will be along any minute...
