  • Belarus: library fined

    Barnabas Fund

    Lepel town police arrested members of a church library ministry for singing and offering Christian books and magazines to passers-by at the entrance to the town market, it was reported in December.

    The local court repeatedly fined one of them to the total equivalent of double his monthly wage. ‘I’ve been conducting the street library ministry for 16 years, offering Bibles, children’s literature and magazines for people to read and return,’ said a church member. ‘Over the last ten years we never had any conflicts.’

  • Canada: school secret

    The Christian Institute

    A Canadian couple’s daughter’s school encouraged her to ‘transition’ without their knowledge, leading the child to the point of suicide, it was reported in December.

    The school began using a male name and pronouns to describe her. Alongside autism, she has body dysmorphia, a mental health problem where there is preoccupation with non-existent or slight flaws in their physical appearance. The district had received training on LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP issues (Lesbian, Gay, Genderqueer, Bisexual, Demisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Twospirit, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, Asexual, Allies, Pansexual and Polyamorous).
