URGENT: Religious freedom under attack in Bulgaria

Posted by in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

On November 11th, 18th and 25th all evangelical churches in Bulgaria are openly protesting in the streets a new restrictive bill on religion, which allows government control over churches across the country as follows:

(1) Funding, which does not originate from Bulgaria will become illegal

(2) All denominations must present before the court a list of the names of at least 3,000 members or have their government registration revoked and services stopped

(3) All church services must be held in government approved buildings, not rented auditoriums, open air or even private homes

(4) All denominations must submit a list with the names of their ministers to be allowed legally to preach

(5) It is illegal to evangelize minors under the age of 18
