Mexican Catholic village tells Protestant man to convert or go to prison

It’s amazing that this type of religious persecution is taking place just below our border indownload (3) Mexico in this day and age but anti-Evangelical intolerance was actually quite common throughout Latin America right up into the middle of the last century and is obviously still popular in some provincial areas. The Mexican press reports “(anti-Evangelical) intolerance is most prevalent in the southwest of Mexico, particularly in the states of Chiapas and Oaxaca, but also in some central states such as Michoacán, Hidalgo, Puebla and Guerrero.” http://www.lapidomedia.com/node/4992

Latin American Catholic bishops were once closely allied with South American governments through concordats and right-wing falangist political parties. Looks like the Mexican bishops forgot to tell their priests to ease up. See my review of “Behind the Purple Curtain” by Walter M. Montano for an overview of anti-Evangelical intolerance in Latin America.

    1. Hello Eleazar, I have read “Behind the Purple Curtain” by Walter Montano, a fascinating book, but I have not read the biography of Montano titled “The Monk Who Lived Again: A Tale of South America” by Benjamin Harold Pearson to which you refer. I see used copies are available from Amazon. Lord bless you in your research.
