QUOTE FROM The Foundry: In addition to a number of legislative actions proposed in support of Ishag, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., spoke in defense of women and Christians around the world during a Senate Foreign Relations Human Rights Subcommittee hearing.
“Persecution of women is wrong.” Paul said. “Persecution of Christians is wrong. Persecution of women or Christians in the name of religion must be stood up to. American power, if it is to have value in the world, must be used as a force against persecution.”
