(India)–We begin today’s news in India, where Christians and other minorities are angry about the new anti-conversion ordinance in the state of Tamil Nadu. Operation Mobilization’s Peter Dance says not only will this ordinance affect evangelism, but also most humanitarian efforts. “They also put a thing in there called, ‘by force, allurement, or fraudulent means.’ Christians teaching children, they would consider that an allurement. Even Christian hospitals. Adult training. So, that will put all of our people on the wrong site of the law.” Dance says Christians need to be concerned about this unconstitutional law and pray. “I don’t think it’s going to end all Christian ministry in India and I think this will be fought in the courts, but I think it’s going to be a difficult battle. It’s not going to end by the end of next week, it’s going to go on for years to come.” The all-India Christian Council is organizing a countrywide protest against the ordinance on October 19th.
