No one is being persecuted in Burundi because of his or her religioius beliefs. In Burundi, the Roman Catholic Church speaks loud on many issues. The bishops have complained about other issues, but never about religious liberty. The GC and the Division should accept to face the truth: politics kills the church instead of making is strong. Church governance is the problem, not religious liberty. Those who were arrested on Sabbath, 4 May, had beaten the church pastor and they almost broke his nose. Investigations led to the arrest of the 2 pastors who are said to have organized this violence.
The Division is protecting people who has embezzled church funds. This is proved by a report from the General Conference Auditing Service. For more inside information, you can contact me through my e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org
