COLUMBUS, Ohio — Concerned Ohioans gathered outside the offices of lobbyist lawyers Squire Patton Boggs (SPB) on Wednesday to rally for persecuted Christians and other religious minorities who are denied basic rights, harmed physically and economically, and sometimes killed by these governments, their clients.
The rally occurred nationwide outside SPB offices in 15 cities, including Cleveland, Ohio, where it was founded as Squire, Sanders & Dempsey in 1890. The Columbus rally was held outside the Huntington Building downtown at 41 South High Street.
According to Open Doors USA, these countries that SPB represents are in the top 50 list of persecutors of Christians. They commit “extreme persecution.” Saudi Arabia is ranked 15th, China 27th, Qatar’s at number 38 and the Palestinian Territories are 49th.
