Persecution update

The New York Times reports on violent persecution of Christianity in India. FromHindu Threat to Christians :

The family of Solomon Digal was summoned by neighbors to what serves as a public square in front of the village tea shop.

They were ordered to get on their knees and bow before the portrait of a Hindu preacher. They were told to turn over their Bibles, hymnals and the two brightly colored calendar images of Christ that hung on their wall. Then, Mr. Digal, 45, a Christian since childhood, was forced to watch his Hindu neighbors set the items on fire.

“ ‘Embrace Hinduism, and your house will not be demolished,’ ” Mr. Digal recalled being told on that Wednesday afternoon in September. “ ‘Otherwise, you will be killed, or you will be thrown out of the village.’ ”

Meanwhile, in Iraq, 15,000 Christians have been driven out of Mosul. Thirteen have been killed. It isn’t clear whether the persecutors are al-Qaida–for whom Mosul is one of their last remaining enclaves–or the Kurds.
