Remember, Obama grew up in “moderate” Indonesia. Why didn’t he ever address the vicious oppression, subjugation and supremacism of Islam in Muslim countries? Why was he constantly campaigning for Islam as a religion of peace? He was disingenuous and dangerous, and the devastation he wrought will take decades to repair.
A Muslim group in Indonesia have forced the cancelation of a Reformation celebration event, saying they were plotting to convert Muslims to Christianity.
The Reformed Evangelical Church of Indonesia had organised an open-air service at a football stadium in Yogyakarta, a city on an Indonesian Island. In their cancelation statement they called it ‘a national prayer service to mark 500 years of Reformation’.
But the Forum Ukhuwah Islamiyah (FUI), who are part of the Indonesian Ulema Council – a body of Muslims that converse between the Indonesian government and the Muslim community – wrote to the stadium officials asking them to not let the gathering go ahead because they believed it would involve evangelism.
They also threatened to disrupt the service if it went ahead.
The Christian organisers, led by the Reverend Stephen Tong, therefore cancelled the event “to avoid acts of intolerance”.
Police rejected the claim that hardliner pressure forced the cancellation of the service.
Yogyakarta police spokesman Yulianto said it did not go ahead because organizers did not have a permit to stage the event….
