Malaysia church to reinstall cross it removed following April protest

Via Ecumenical News:

The Malaysian church which took down its cross in April after Muslim protesters pressured it to do so has vowed to put the symbol back on its building.


A senior pastor of the Community of Praise Petaling Jaya said the church leadership has decided to install another cross in the place of worship after the original was removed after it triggered a protest from the Muslim community.

“The timing would depend on the availability of the contractor,” said Rev. Paul Packianathan in an interview with The Malaysian Insider.

The pastor said that the church had already commissioned a contractor to do the job, adding that it was only a matter of time before workers begin installing the cross.
