'The Heart of Our Mission Is the Preservation of Human Dignity' -Secretary of State Pompeo at the Value Voters Summit

Doug Mainwaring : Sep 24, 2018 :

Under Secretary Pompeo's leadership, the State Department held the first-ever Religious Freedom meeting where representatives of over 80 countries stood with the United States' cause of defending the rights of all individuals to believe and worship as they choose. "The pent-up demand for this opportunity was so overwhelming that we're going to do it again next year"... -Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

"And this administration understands an eternal truth—that each person has an essential worth simply because he or she is human and having been created by God," said Pompeo.

"Our calling as Americans," he added, is "to keep that ancient spark of wisdom in the laws of our own republic, and to do so as best we can all around the world."

The Secretary of State spoke of the "remarkable speech" President Trump gave in Warsaw, Poland, in which he said that, "above all, we value the dignity of every human life, we protect the rights of every person, and we share the hope of every soul to live in freedom."

While for Americans, this is our birthright, for many around the world this remains an unfulfilled aspiration.

Pompeo said that because Americans believe the principles the nation is founded upon are worth living by, "we proudly raise our banner of self-government, freedom, and human dignity all across the world. We will never accept a diminished role for America on the global stage."

In direct contrast to former President Barack Obama's foreign policy of 'leading from behind' on the world stage, "We're going to lead from the front," said Pompeo to thunderous applause.

"We are assuring human dignity by advancing one of our most cherished and indispensable liberties. It's enshrined in the First Amendment. It is our religious freedom"... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here.
