We’ve all heard about Muslims persecuting Christians in the Middle East and Africa but the ongoing story of Catholics persecuting Evangelicals in Mexico is somehow left out of the evening news.
Here’s the latest sordid episode:
7 evangelical Christians jailed for refusing to convert not to Islam but to Catholicism in Mexico
Catholicism had an ugly history of oppressing Protestants in league with civil governments in countries where it had the majority right up into the 20th-century and this legacy continues in parts of Latin America.
American journalists recently compared Donald Trump’s Muslim-baiting to anti-Catholicism in the U.S. one hundred years ago (see my post here) while Catholic intolerance continues to rear its ugly head just south of the border with no comment.
