South Bend’s Greek Orthodox Church is calling on the state of Indiana to pass a Religious Freedom Resolution.

St. Andrew Greek Orthodox Church seeks a resolution that mostly concerns the religion’s Ecumenical Patriarch, according to ABC 57.

The resolution has broader, more global implications, however, related to the persecution Christians are currently facing overseas. In Turkey, for example, the Patriarch is viewed as just another Turkish priest, as opposed to a global religious leader.

45 states have passed the measure, including Illinois and Michigan, but Indiana has not. The group proposing this resolution plans to bring it to Indiana legislators in early 2017.
