Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Rwandan President Paul Kagame closed 7000 Christian churches and mosques in Rwanda during the first six months of this year, causing outrage around the world. One hundred twenty-three religious leaders have gone missing, pastors have been imprisoned, and Human Rights Watch has been expelled from the country"again.. Rwandas population of 12 million is roughly 60% Roman Catholic, 26% Protestant, 11% Seventh-day Adventist, and 5% Muslim. The country was included in a recent Washington DC exhibition of photos and information about Christian persecution around the world. I spoke to David Himbara, former economic advisor to Kagame, who now lives in exile in Canada.
