Feds move to correct Obama's transgender healthcare policies
WASHINGTON (May 24, 2019) — The Trump administration proposed Friday to roll back Obama-era discrimination policies for transgender people in health care.
An organization whose concern is the human rights of Christians and minority religions is concerned to see Muslim communities challenging Ugandan Christians' freedoms to proclaim their faith.
Uganda is a majority Christian nation, but Nathan Johnson with International Christian Concern (ICC) says Islam has influence in pockets of the country.
"Strong Muslim communities throughout Uganda do follow Sharia and for some reason are allowed to conduct their local law that way, so it causes a lot of issues for anybody who converts from Islam," he laments.
The latest example happened late last month, when six evangelists were arrested for preaching. Local Muslims reported to the Ugandan police that the Christians were using the Quran to undermine the prophet Muhammad and people of the Islamic faith. Though the evangelists were released a couple of days later, they were warned not to discuss the Quran.
"That's really concerning to see that -- where the government is backing up this kind of behavior from these strict Islamic communities there in Uganda," Johnson comments. "We would hope to see that Islamic communities could celebrate their own faith while Christian communities can celebrate their own and not really attack each other. Thankfully, the Christians aren't doing that at this time; it's really the Muslim community of Uganda attacking the Christian community, it seems like."
Johnson insists the Ugandan government must ensure that the rights of Christians are protected equally.
