-Indonesia: Radicals Force 110 Churches to Close

by Dr. D ~ April 5th, 2008

Attacks from radical Muslim groups and/or local governments have forced the closure of 110 churches in Indonesia in the last 3 years (2004-2007).  Indonesia is the largest Muslim country with an 85% Muslim population, of its 220 million people, and only an 8.7% Christian population.

As Islam has become more radicalized in recent years, the religious strife has increased.
