Religious Intolerance Increasing in Indonesia

Lady Gaga's recent concert in Indonesia
was cancelled due to the
outcry by Islamic groups.

I have Christian friends in Indonesia (many of you know who I'm talking about). Let's pray for them, since it is becoming increasingly dangerous in Indonesia to be non-Muslim. See the nytimes - "Indonesia's Rising Religious Intolerance."

"The majority of Indonesian Muslims remain moderate, and are appalled by rising intolerance. But three factors are undermining religious freedom: the silence and passivity of the majority, growing radicalization, and the weakness of the government at every level."
