AAI Supports US House Resolution 512
Rep.Jamie Raskin is sponsoring a bill in the US Congress calling for the repeal of blasphmey, heresy and apostasy laws worldwide. Blasphemy, heresy and apostasy laws stand in violation of Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which guarantees freedom of thought, expression and religion.
Atheists are particularly vulnerable to accusations of these religiously motivated crimes leading to large numbers of atheists becoming refugees to escape imprisonment and even execution.
Atheist Alliance International strongly supports Resolution 512. Blasphemy, heresy and apostasy go against fundamental human rights which are the foundation of our work at AAI. We urge every American who agrees with us to contact their congressperson urging them to support Resolution 512.
