Headlines for a New Decade of Persecution

SWISS MINARET BAN - LEADS TO THREATS AGAINST CHRISTIANS
TAJIKISTAN - CHURCHES FORCED TO RE-REGISTER
SRI LANKA - MOBS STORM CHRISTIAN CENTRES ACROSS THE COUNTRY
CHINA - HOUSE CHURCH LEADER SENTENCED TO 15 YEARS IN PRISON
IRAQ - MORE BOMBINGS IN BAGHDAD AND MOSUL
INDIA - ANTI-CONVERSION BILL CONSIDERED IN KARNATAKA
INDIA - FEARS OF RENEWED ANTI-CHRISTIAN VIOLENCE IN ORISSA

Courtesy of Barnabas Fund, full stories here. The Swiss minaret ban of late last year seemed to be only a spiteful and meaningless anti-islamic gesture, i'm not surprised to see it beggining to cause problems. I'm not saying we need to accept sharia law in western countries, far from it, but not letting them have their minarets is just petty and unhelpful.
