US Wants Answers on Evangelical Persecution—in Mexico
Earlier this year, nearly 50 Mexican evangelicals returned to their hometown of Buenavista Bahuitz, in Chiapas, after five years of exile. Local leaders, who had forced the families out for leaving the “traditionalist” church, agreed to let them return on the condition that they pay a fee to support the village’s annual festivals.

But while the 12 families told World Watch Monitor that they’re just happy to be back, US officials and Christian persecution groups are ratcheting up pressure on the Mexican government to better protect indigenous Mexicans who leave a syncretistic Roman Catholicism. (Traditionalist Catholics in southwestern Mexico practice a blend of Catholicism and indigenous rites, according to Morning Star News.)

“It is time that the Mexican government provides justice and protection for victims of religious persecution while dealing with local and state officials that are part of ...

It is not surprising that Protestants are being persecuted in Mexico since there is not Freedom of Religion in Mexico.

Given the Chiapas history of communism Zapata Sandinista, it's a wonder that Francis hasn't gone to Mexico to help revive the old communist spirit that's a smoking amber in Mexico.
But one thing he will not help is the persecution of evangelicalism, he will agree with Mexico's stance on Protestantism as a disrupter to Mexican rule. Mexico has a long history of maintaining Christendom as a historical relic, that if , you professes Christ and him crucified and alive again, might have to send out the army/cartel to put you in a ditch.

Right Jim. The church is much, much different abroad. She has been forced into submission here in the states and not allowed to exercise her iron fist. The church isn't the whole problem in Mexico though since they tend to mix magic, like santaria, etc, into the religion, compounding the issues.
Like yourself Chris, I find ex-Catholics are the best source of information on the Romish church, for example this comment About [URL=]]] Popular Folk Catholics[/URL], a short section of a longer article. This is very good material.

about 11 minutes in after other persecution in other countries

Under the Law of Uses and Customs, some local leaders have cracked down on converts, cutting of their water, sewage, or electricity, preventing their children from attending school, and committing acts of violence against them, including murder.
Indigenous Mexicans who become evangelicals often face resistance from those afraid of losing financial and political clout, according to a video put out earlier this month by the ICC. When these new evangelicals stop celebrating Santa Muerte and paying homage to the local witch doctor, it threatens the village’s existing power structure, it said.
In 2005, a Huichol mob expelled 80 evangelicals, likely driven by anger that the new converts would no longer buy alcohol and consequently bankrupt the local caciques.
Many of the incidents have taken place in Chiapas, which is home to more than 4.5 million people and one of Mexico’s poorest states.

It is good that we are reminded once again, of the tyrannical Romish Church All too little has changed in Mexico and Latin America. [URL=]]]"Rome when in minority is as gentle as a lamb, when in equality is as clever as a fox, and when in the majority is as fierce as a tiger."[/URL], something that was pointed out in one the first trips of His Unholiness John Paul 2. Franny should have this problem pointed out to him when comes to darken our door this this fall, in Philidelphia.

2 John 1
9 Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.
10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house, and do not give him a greeting;
11 for the one who gives him a greeting participates in his evil deeds.---[URL=]]]NASB[/URL]
