Three Christian women have been charged with violating Indonesia’s 2002 Child Protection Act and sentenced to three years in prison. The women, who held a “Happy Sunday” program in their homes in early May, were charged with attempting to Christianize Muslim children. Although the children had their parents’ permission, observers say pressure from Islamic radicals who threatened to kill the women, witnesses, pastors, missionaries and judges in the trial factored into the decision to convict. The verdict may be appealed. (Compass Direct)
