The Church in Burma

As a church, in the name of the church, we don’t usually do that [i.e. get involved in the protests]…I have a high respect for those monks and I think in many ways it’s an embarrassment for many of us Christians – I wish we could just rise up as a church, but that’s just not how that situation’s worked out. Again, I would say that I’m in full support of [the monks and protesters]. And I think most evangelicals admire their courage, their willingness to sacrifice the favor that they get from the government, and their willingness to even sacrifice their lives. We would give them high respect for that. (Pastor David, a Burmese church planter)
