Human Rights Advocacy in the Mainline Protestant Churches
Diane Knippers, IRD President
The Institute on Religion and Democracy
released a an extensive report critical of human rights advocacy by mainline U.S. Protestant churches and related ecumenical bodies. The IRD report scrutinizes the churchesí choice of the nations at which they aim their human rights criticisms. The results showed that over one-third of all church criticisms of human rights abuses were aimed at a single small nation: Israel. Slightly less than one-third were aimed at the United States, and the rest were distributed among twenty other nations.
