Indonesian Christians barred from church in West Java
Catholic World News - March 14, 2011
Christians on Indonesia’s province of West Java report that they have been barred by local officials from entering their own church, despite a supreme court order allowing them to use the building.
The church in Bogor City was padlocked, and the faithful were forced to break into the building for Sunday services. Local officials were defying the court’s order, they said.
