Laos: officials say Christians must renounce faith or leave district
Catholic World News - September 25, 2013
In the Atsaphangthong district of Laos, civic officials have announced that Christians must either renounce their faith or face expulsion from the area, the Fides news service reports.
Officials in Atsaphangthong announced their policy on September 21, in response to complaints about a large number of conversions to Christianity. The Christians living in the area have said that they will resist the policy, citing their right to religious freedom under the country’s constitution.
