US embassy cables: Concerns over Vietnamese crackdown.

However, these situations are primarily “land disputes,” do not meet the statutory requirement in the 1998 International Religious Freedom Act, and should not divert our attention from the significant gains in expanding religious freedoms that Vietnam has made since the lifting of CPC designation in November 2006. These gains include increased recognition and registration of scores of new religions, implementation of a new legal framework on religion, and training programs at the local and national level.

Landmark religious freedom case victory in Russia.


Critics said the law is applied randomly and unfairly. At a news conference in Moscow, Kalistratov’s lawyer read from a Russian Orthodox catechism that described other religions as being “from the devil,” and said that if the same logic that prosecutors applied to his case were applied to such literature, thousands or even millions of Russian Orthodox believers would have to be put on trial.

FYI – Free of religion vs. freedom of the beach.


“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

Recently, the Selectmen of Falmouth issued a permit to a local Baptist Church to hold Easter Sunday services on a public beach. Of course, having gotten so much of their foot in the door for using taxpayer-maintained public property as a church, the Baptists have come right back asking for a permit to use Falmouth Heights Beach every Sunday, from 5 to 7 p.m., throughout the summer.
