-Peace Rally for Persecuted Christians in India

by Dr. D ~ September 28th, 2008

 image  leaders of the Christian India community in greater Chicago held a press conference and announced that today (Sunday) they will hold a peace rally in support of the persecuted Christians in India’s state of Orissa.

The following appeal was sent by Bishop Rt. Rev. Dr. Mar Jacob Angadiath of St. Thomas Syro-Malabar Catholic Diocese of Chicago:

"As you are well aware the persecution of our Christian brethren and the destruction of our churches, convents, orphanages and other Christian institutions are continuing unabated in Orissa, Karnataka and in some parts of Kerala. We cannot remain silent spectators of such gruesome cruelties inflicted on innocent people. We have to make our people and local congregations aware of the indescribable cruelty of this hatred and violence against Christians. It was the desire of many people who have contacted me to act together to bring to the attention of the Christian faithful here the atrocities of this cruel rampage.

Hence may I request to join me along with all the peace loving congregations to show our solidarity and support to our brothers and sisters in India. I am calling for a ‘Peace Rally’ and a ‘Prayer Vigil’ on Sunday, September 28, 2008 at 1:30 P.M. at the Syro-Malabar Cathedral Grounds, 5000 St. Charles Road, Bellwood, Illinois.

According to the CT article, there are peace rallies and protests also planned for New York, Philadelphia, and Washington DC.

Response: The violence against Christians continues in India with very little coverage by the major media in the U.S. At least some Christians in America are beginning to do something about it. All of us need to respond at the very least in prayer.            *Top
