Good News from Tunisia

I failed to post this last week. Tunisia recently approved a new constitution that at least appears to be very good news for religious minorities, including Christians. 

Tunisia, the birthplace of the Arab Spring uprisings, voted last week to approve a new constitution that rejects Sharia law and includes some protection for Christians and other religious minorities.

Laying the foundation for a new democracy, it is one of the most progressive constitutions in the Arab world and includes protections for citizens’ rights, protection from torture, the right to due process, and freedom of worship. The elected assembly took two years to write it.

About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."
