 Buddhism state religion in Sri Lanka?

EXTREMISTS ATTEMPT TO MAKE BUDDHISM SRI LANKA’S STATE RELIGION

Buddhist extremists in Sri Lanka have drafted an amendment to the country’s constitution, changing the status of Buddhism from the “foremost religion” to the “state religion.”
One clause in the constitutional amendment would prohibit Buddhists from converting to another religion.
While the proposed amendment contains an article providing freedom for the practice of other religions, this is qualified by the requirement that they are practiced “in peace and harmony with Buddhist teachings.”
One article of the proposed amendment states, “To convert Buddhists into other forms of worship or to spread other forms of worship among the Buddhists is prohibited.”

 Re: Buddhism state religion in Sri Lanka?



The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
Who shall ascend upon the hill of the LORD? and who shall stand in his holy place?
He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul to vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
Ps 24:1-4

Let us cleanse our hands and our hearts to be able to add to the intercession needed to cover and bring help to the Christians in Sri Lanka.
Mark
