This story provides an interesting counterpoint to my earlier post about state-sponsored language and culture training for the Moroccan diaspora in Europe.
The Moroccan specialist in evangelisation (sic), Anouar Hamdouni, is calling on the supervisory authorities to create a national observatory to fight against evangelisation at the heart of Moroccan society, fertile ground for the preachers.

According to Anouar Hamdouni, Morocco does not take enough interest in the question of evangelisation which menaces disadvantaged populations, who are the target of evangelists "taking advantage" of their misery to convert them to Christianity.

Young Moroccans' lack of scientific and religious training is also a reason why these populations are "easy prey" for evangelists, according to Anouar Hamdouni.

In 2010, the Minister of the Interior ordered the expulsion of eight foreign evangelists, which took the number of foreigners accused of Catholic proselytism who have been expelled from Morocco to 128.

In Morocco, a country with around a thousand Catholics, the penal code provides for penalties ranging from 6 months to 3 years in prison for any person accused of preaching for the propagation of religions other than Islam.

Mullah Lodabullah said...

The gates of Hades will not prevail against the church, much less Morocco (Matthew 16:18) - the Gospel will be preached to all nations, and then the end will come (Matthew 24:14).

Anouar Hamdouni sets himself against God at his peril.
