This article appeared on the website for The Christian Post and documents the fact that despite unification during clean up efforts, Christians are still treated more harshly. This incident only compounds the fears of usual persecution resuming after the murder of a priest in Purworejo last friday.

(Christian Post) – Along with the challenges facing Indonesians since the Dec. 26 quake-tsunami devastation, local Christians continue to face persecution in the predominantly Muslim nation, a persecution watchdog group reported Thursday. According to VOM, three new churches were threatened with closure when the head of the North Grogol community in West Jakarta accused the churches of disturbing the community and meeting illegally in business buildings. However, the three churches confirmed that the meeting halls could be used for business or other purposes, including religious gatherings.
