Jakarta archbishop decries jihad families as new form of violence
May 15, 2018
CWN Editor's Note: Following attacks on 3 Indonesian churches, the archbishop of Jakarta (the nation’s capital) said that “planning and implementing a suicide attack by taking their children with them is a new [form] of violence.” The ultimate target of the attack, he added, was a pluralist Indonesia in which members of different religions have a place. The parish priest of one of the targeted churches forgave the perpetrators and said, “Catholics in the Diocese of Surabaya are in deep pain, but the Catholic Church is not afraid of terror.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
