Protecting Houses of Worship

Since its inception, the Appeal of Conscience Foundation has served as the pre-eminent organization advocating for the protection of houses of worship for all denominations world-over. The return of houses of worship in religious communities in the former Soviet Union and China,  the preservation of cemeteries, the outcry for destruction of mosques and churches during the conflict in the former Yugoslavia and the building of Churches in Cuba, all embrace the Appeal of Conscience Foundation’s motto: “A crime committed in the name of Religion is the greatest crime against religion”.

ACF initiated the UN resolution for the Protection of Religious Sites which was unaminously adopted by the member states of the UN General Assembly in 2001.
