Biden Nominates a Muslim to be Next Ambassador of International Religious Freedom

Objectivity 2.0 | Credibility 3.8 | Relevance 4.3

Last week, the Biden administration announced the nomination of diplomat and former law professor Rashad Hussain to serve as the next ambassador for International Religious Freedom. A post previously held by former Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback. Hussain is the first Muslim ever to be nominated for the position since it was created in 1998. Biden did not stop there with questionable nominations for leadership on religious freedom. Sharon Kleinbaum, a lesbian rabbi of the Congregation Beit Simchat Torah (CBST) in New York City, was nominated as a commissioner for USCIRF, a congressionally mandated panel tasked with advising the federal government on issues relating to religious freedoms. It should be interesting to see how non-Christians will represent a free Christian nation.
