Sen. John McCain vowed Wednesday to fight religious prosecution, human trafficking, child pornography and other "evil" if he becomes president.
The speech at Oakland University in Rochester, Minnesota, was part of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's efforts to reach out to conservatives within his party.
The speech emphasized many issues social conservatives have championed.
McCain railed against "a tendency in our age to accede to the spurious excuse of moral relativism and turn away from the harshest examples of man's inhumanity to man, to ignore the darker side of human nature that encroaches upon our decency by subtle degree."
McCain singled out China, Iran, Myanmar, Sudan, North Korea and Saudi Arabia for restricting religious freedom and said he would make religious freedom "a subject of great importance" in his foreign policy if he became president.
