The Persecution website reports that members of an Indonesian church held Sunday service yesterday (September 19, 2010) inside their boarded-up building, despite police efforts to stop them.
About 100 members of the Batak Christian Protestant Church in Jakarta -- the capital of Indonesia -- gathered to worship while hundreds of police and security guards stood outside.
Church members argued that they have the right to freedom of worship, like other citizens in Indonesia -- the world's most populous Muslim country.
"We just want to carry out our obligations as Christians, but authorities are treating us like terrorists," said Advent Tambunan, a church member. He added, "There is no justice for us (Christians) in this country."
