  1. Wait a minute. How was this not listed in "Christian Persecution"?

    There are 9,000 Christians jailed in Indonesia? Seriously?

    Or, by "Christian" is that including a bunch of Catholics using the name and disobeying laws there?

    This should have been brought to the attention of all.
