Indonesian officials destroyed a Christian church this week.

Indonesian city officials destroyed a Christian church in front of its weeping congregation. Muslims stood around and egged on the destruction.
The Straits Times reported:

An Indonesian city government demolished a church in front of its weeping congregation on March 21, 2013, as Muslim protesters egged on workers and branded the Christians “infidels”.

Dozens in the 100-strong congregation wailed as a digger tore down the brick walls, with worshippers accusing the government of “criminalising our religion”, in a sign of increasing intolerance in the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation.

“My heart is aching and I feel numb watching my church collapse. I went to this church for 11 years,” worshipper Megarenta Sihite, 46, told AFP, wiping away tears as fellow worshippers, dressed in black, hugged each other..
