Twenty Protestant families have been forcibly displaced from their homes in western Mexico because of their faith after the government refused to prevent the deportations, an advocacy official told BosNewsLife Friday, January 29.
Threats of expulsion have been ongoing since December 6 last year when a resolution was adopted by the village assembly saying that the Protestant members of the community would be expelled if they refused to convert to Roman Catholicism, described as "the traditional faith", Christians said.

Beware ANY government-ecclesiastical complex.
Literally the Spanish inquisition...
Mexican Catholics and Catholic bishops should not whine when the deportations from the U.S. begin.
Is the Pope going to condemn this?
Or is he too busy preaching global warming?
The list of the top 50 per capita homicide rates by city is 42 in “south of the border” cities where Catholicism has been utterly dominant for centuries, the other 8 are either in South Africa, or US cities with a solid black majority.
And we are letting them walk into America by the millions.
So the government does not favor Catholics.
You mean anti-Catholic tradition.
These people are Indians, not Hispanics — the Mexican government has a history of ignoring squabbling among Indians. Furthermore, these particular people, Huichol, have long been considered a “troublesome” population.
There is a long history of anti-clericism and anti-Catholicism in Mexico dating back to the 1880s. In the 1920s it was illegal to say Mass. So lets not be blaming the Catholics for this one.
"Wixaritari are relatively well-known among anthropologists for their long tradition of rejecting Catholic influences and continuing traditional Shamanistic practices. Indeed, Wixaritari, along with the Lacandons and other ethnic minorities in the country, have fought for their religious and cultural freedom since the arrival of the Spanish conquerors." -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huichol_people#Current_issues
If these are the bible-spouting ding-dongs who lack brains, I say BRAVO! Mexico.
Why did the writers of the Mexican constitution in the 1800s feel a need to restrict the RCC and then move to codify it further into law after the revolution?
What explains this perceived need?
They had 300 years of RCC in Mexico to look back on. So what made them think it was a threat? Benito Juarez was for it, and he was a pretty decent and fair minded man.
Send those poor refugees to the US. We’ll take care of them. /s
In what way he decent and fair-minded? He wanted to seize property. He wannted the government to be the religion, so any belief system challenging the government in people hearts and minds was a threat. How has that worked out for Mexico?
