Gwangju Christians "prohibition of gathering is restraining churches"

광주 교계 "집회금지는 교회 죽이기…행정명령 취소해야"(종합)

Gwangju Christians "prohibition of gathering is restraining churches"



The Society Countermeasures Participation Coalition which is formed of religious groups within Gwangju urged for the cancellation of the current administrative orders.


They held a press conference on Sept. 3rd, criticizing the administrative orders prohibiting onsite services.


At the conference, they asserted that "churches have voluntarily followed the disinfection measures. Also, there can be cooperation under necessary situations."


However, the churches were ordered to close. This is raising serious concerns. Therefore, skeptical views are raising that with the law as an excuse, "'killing churches' has begun."
