Oppressed Christians AGAIN Celebrate Xmas On The Street!


It’s so enjoyable to spend Christmas with people you don’t see nearly enough of. And to be free to celebrate the holiday as you see fit.

Not so in Jakarta, where persecuted Protestants had to hold their service on the street, opposite President Jokowi’s Palace….

…because they can’t get access to their churches because bigoted Islamists still prevent them doing so.

The congregations of GKI Yasmin and HKBP Filadelfia joined together again – I have joined them too in the past, but this year I am not in town – and faced the weather. I hope it was less inclement than where I am.

I won’t go over the background to their plight. Our previous stories are linked below…

…so you can read all about the wickedness of their persecutors and the failure of the government to enforce a high court ruling (and the ombudsman’s ruling too)

PS There are reports of movement on the GKi issue, but I won;t report on that till I have a closer look.
