I am shocked! Did you know Christians still faced persecution?

I heard from a friend who heard from a friend a church in Indonesia was burned by muslims celebrating. I am a person who wants information and credible sources before I believe anything.

I was a bit surprised. Can anyone give me the link of find information about this:
Christian Church in Indonesia. A church, 80% built, was ready to celebrate mass on Christmas when about 1000 Muslims in 'national celebration' burned it down last night."

  • Christians are persecuted every day spiritually even in this country (usa) so I'm not surprised that they are in other countries as well

  • Zanzeebeel, this is truly happening. It's not christians making muslems look bad. It's the few muslims who believe they are in some sort of holy war making the 95% who are peaceful people look bad. If you want to point the finger of blame point it to them.

    Besides the persecution by muslem extreemest there is government sanctioned or sponsored persecution. This is happening in communest China and to all religions.

  • Just ask Sweet-a kins for a link , she normally has all the information and sources on making muslims look bad !!!!

    this isn't about making muslims look bad sorry you feel the need to make this a blanket statment about all muslims when this question is about persecution of Christians not persecutions of Christians by muslims.

  • She was asking for more information ,

    I wasnt suggesting that its alright to burn churches or trying to justify it , its not justifiable , it is completely against the muslim faith, I condem it.

  • I think just about every religious group is persecuted at some point, somewhere on this earth. No one is the SINGLE target. It's sad. We are so far from global peace:(
