Raphaela Schmid who reported on the situation in the Church in China below, heads up the Roman branch of this organization: The Becket Fund. It is an interesting group that I had never heard of.

Named for St. Thomas Becket, the Fund is a law firm dedicated to protecting the religious freedom of people of all faiths. The Becket Fund advocates for religious freedom internationally and nationally.

Areas of special concern include laws prohibiting religious apparel and other forms of peaceful religious expression; laws that prohibit proselytizing or religious conversion; the persecution of “unregistered” religious groups; and the seizure or destruction of houses of worship. The website makes this clear the Fund does not just concern itself with situations where the Christian faith is restricted but all faiths - including Islam - and in all places - including prisons.

Their Board of Advisors is high powered: Cardinal George, Mary Ann Glendon (prof of international law at Harvard); Eunice and Sargeant Shriver, etc. They have a very extensive web site that lists the various cases they are involved with in the US and elsewhere. Check them out.
