    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….

    Jemaat GKI Yasmin Kembali Langsungkan Misa di Seberang Istana

    …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…

    Head-Scarfed Harpies Hurl Dung and Urine at Christians 

    …and there’s the congregation of GKI Yasmin church..…

    Oppressed Christians In The Street Heat, In Pluralist Indonesia 

    …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.

      Those brutes in Bekasi were never prosecuted.
      I don’t think the thugs in Bogor were either.
      It’s so bad when the state won’t enforce its own supreme court’s ruling.
      The way these harmless Christians have been treated is just mean. I hope next Christmas they can sing and pray in their own church.

    Cold Christmas for Java Christians – Thanks, ‘Moderate’ Mayor!’ 

    • Persecuted Christians in West Java, briefly hopeful  of deliverance from sectarian oppression,will again be denied access to their church this Christmas!




      Shamefully, Bogor’s so-called ‘moderate’ Mayor Bima has even warned the Protestant GKI Yasmin congregation not to worship on the street – for several years now, Yasmin and other victimised minorities have worshipped right across the road from the Presidential Palace, in downtown Jakarta, where I sometimes join them.

      Two of a kind?

      So we see ‘moderate’ Mayor Bima’s  no better than his predecessor, the fanatic Mayor Diani, who  sealed the Christian house of worship-  dismal Islamist intolerance exemplified!  

      • Bima said on Thursday he would not carry out the Supreme Court order to reopen the church, citing unspecified “strong reasons” for flouting the verdict from the highest court in the land.

      He said he had asked for the Home Affairs Ministry and Religious Affairs Ministry to weigh in on the issue.

      In other words, Bima prefers to pass the buck; he could order local police to confront bigot louts like GARIS, whose leader has declared himself head of ISIS in Indonesia.  GARIS and other jihadist jerk outfits bussed in bigots and mayhem ensued.

      Non Bima-style Muslims, like good old Lily Wahid, who showed up in solidarity with the Christian victims, were abused and threatened by the brutes. The cops, shockingly, refuse to enforce the ruling of the highest court in the land. They have reduced their role to that of umpire between good and evil.




      • “But so far we have not received any [feedback],” he said.

      “What is clear is that [the congregation] should not [stage a Christmas celebration] on the sidewalk. Sidewalks are not a place for praying. We have provided [alternative venues] like Harmoni or other places,” he said, referring to a local public hall.”


      What a nerve!

      They’d hardly need alternative venues if Bima had the cojones to end the illegal sealing of the church!

      Is it that he fears to face down those hoodlum ISIS fans? Or is it that, despite his previous protestations of pluralism, he is himself indifferent to religious liberty?

      Time for President Jokowi to step in and kick some jihadist ass!
