Saudis couldn’t believe this small group has united so many freedom of religion advocates worldwide…

The human rights abuses of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are not secrets. It’s astounding the enormous risks courageous Saudis are taking to organize and agitate for reform.

* The Center for Inquiry fights for the rights to free belief and expression around the world. They tackle anti-blasphemy laws, which criminalize religious criticism; apostasy laws, which make leaving the majority religion a crime; and the various forms these violations of human rights take, such as laws against “offending religious feelings.”

* The Saudis were upset that a small organization of “infidels” who would dare to advocate free speech was able to call them out before the eyes of the world.

## The world noticed.
