Religious Freedom from Politics to Policies

Cătălin Raiu: ”The topic of freedom of religion or belief (FoRB), generally understood in Eastern Europe as highly dispensable despite the recent experience of the Communist regime, is still under a lot of presure due to the lack of public policies developed in this area by the government.This book advocates for a more democratic approach towards Freedom of Religion of Belief in accordance with the European and American good practices, for the usage of international standards, commitements, recommendations and guidelines in order to apply the principles of Freedom of Religion or Belief; the joining of the Romanian Government to the International Alliance of Freedom of Religion or Belief launched by the US Department of State and which already includes almost all post-Communist countries from Europe; the establishment of the Romanian national mandate of Special Envoy for the Promotion of Freedom or Religion or Belief; the enhancing of collaboration with European institutions such as the Agency for Fundamental Rights of the European Commission and the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights of OSCE which offers practical solutions for emergency situations, like the Covid-19 pandemic etc.; the advancement of the culture of Freedom of Religion or Belief in the public administration, at least on central level, starting from the minimal effort to religiously alphabetize at least the political decision makers”

Cătălin Raiu is the first Romanian to be selected as member of the panel of experts on freedom of religion or belief at ODIHR/OSCE.
”I welcome this interesting and important book of Catalin Raiu who is one of Romanian leading experts in the area of FoRB protection and promotion. His effort is known and recognized internationally, especially within the OSCE and the EU. Romania plays an important role within today´s regional and global structures of security and cooperation. With its expertise and constructive commitment, rich history and human potential Romania can contribute significantly to the recognition and strengthening of the nexus between FoRB and human dignity of all as a precondition and base for a more humane XXI Century.”
Ján Figeľ
Special Envoy for Promotion of Freedom of Religion or Belief outside the EU (2016-2019)

Religious freedom is known as 🇺🇸America’s 'first freedom' because it grounds the dignity of the human person deeply in the constitutional system. The American creed says that every person possesses freedom and equality granted by God. Nothing protects democracy more than the commitment of each of us to the #ReligiousFreedom of all persons. Happy Independence Day! ...

While listening to her reading, I caught myself on an absurd thought: my Russian-speaking children had to hide in the shelter and entertain themselves by reading Russian-language poetry, because Vladimir Putin decided to destroy Russian-speaking Ukrainian cities in order “to protect the Russian-speaking population” in Ukraine.

Războiul din Ucraina 🇺🇦 scoate la iveală modul duplicitar în care Rusia 🇷🇺 își justifică politica de agresiune militară cu ajutorul discursului teologic. România 🇷🇴 trebuie să rămână fidelă angajamentelor europene pe domeniul libertății religioase (printre care depolitizarea relației cu cultele religioase) și să contribuie proactiv la consolidarea democrației oriunde în lume, alături de SUA 🇺🇸 și UK 🇬🇧 ...

Felicitari pentru discurs!

Cred că autocratul vladimir vladimirovici putin are vocația Bicetre-Kremlin, adică vocația secției de psihiatrie din Paris...Autocratul a stat suficient la Kremlin-Russia.

Palatul valorând un miliard de dolari aparținând autocratului vladimir vladimirovici putin este un mausoleu de lux,est o morgă de lux placată cu aur...Izolare și auto-izolare a autocratului putin care a devenit un robot sau artefax care nu are religie creștină...Religia autocratului este crima,genocidul...Terifiant...Duplicitatea acestuia cu iosif visarionovici stalin a creat religia războiului lingvistic, a războiului etnic, a războiului fratricid.

De ce contează rezultatele privind afilierea religioasă? „Răspunsul e calibrat la nivel individual, subiectiv, de fiecare persoană în parte. Fiecare persoană e chemată să distingă apartenența ei. Nu există un instrument obiectiv exterior care să ghideze persoana către această apartenență. Adică nu există niciun fel de constrângere, nu se cere nicio dovadă, niciun document. Deci fiecare este liber să treacă ce consideră”, spune Cătălin Raiu.

„Cărei religii aparțineți?”, întrebarea-problemă de la recensământul populației. „Să pui ateu pentru că ai o problemă cu opulența preoților nu e o idee bună”
Mai mulți experți comentează problemele românilor privind intrebarea privind religia din chestionarul de recensamant.
