Pope silent about persecution of evangelicals by Catholics in Mexico

I was VERY curious to see if the pope would address the ongoing persecution of themc evangelical minority by the Catholic majority in southern, rural Mexico during his visit to that country last week. To date, I haven’t seen any news reports that mention the pope ever condemned or even acknowledged this extremely disturbing situation.

It’s inconceivable that the pope was not made aware of the violence. Perhaps he and the Mexican bishops are so disturbed by the “defection” of people from Catholicism to Jesus Christ and evangelical churches that they view the persecution of evangelicals by Catholics as a regrettable but understandable consequence.

Below is a previously unposted report from Mexico which states an evangelical church was torched by Catholics immediately prior to the pope’s visit (see photo).
