More Mexican Intolerance.

Families Expelled for Refusing to Recant

“Every man is free to pursue the religious belief that best suits him, and to practice its ceremonies”
– ARTICLE 24, MEXICAN CONSTITUTION
On January 26, 10 Christian families, comprised of
18 adults and 10 children, were expelled from their community
of Tuxpan de Bolanos in the Mexican state of Jalisco for refusing
to recant their faith. A town agreement to evict the families was
executed, and the families were gathered and abandoned in the
nearby mountains shortly after. This is yet another incident in the
ongoing persecution of evangelical Christians in rural Mexico and
the government’s reluctance to protect religious minorities.
