Monks attacking Church in Sri LankaDear family & friends in Christ,

While we in Australia and in the West enjoy the freedom to worship, Christians around the world are persecuted and attacked for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Christians in at least 3 churches badly damaged in Sri Lanka have been attacked while worshipping on Sunday the 12th January 2014.

Assembly of God on the Baddegama Road in Hikkaduwa and the Calvary Free Church were both attacked by the mobs yesterday.

Please note that although the national news broadcast is in the Sri Lankan language, the footage very clearly shows the Buddhist Monks and mob attacking the church.

    Hi All,

    Sri Lanka has a long history of abuse and oppression minorities. After brutally suppressing Tamils in 2009, killing well over 100,000 civilians now the Sri Lankan regime and Buddhist clergy has turned its ugly head against Christian churches.

    We Australians should stop this menace by protecting minorities in Sri Lanka and protesting to our Government too.
