Jalisco Community Expels 10 Baptist Families for Refusing to Recant Faith

Tuxpan de Bolaños is one of five centers of the Wixárika indigenous people. (

Ten Baptist families have been expelled by an indigenous community in Mexico for refusing to recant their Christian faith.

The 18 adults and 10 children from Tuxpan de Bolaños in Jalisco state were put in a pick-up truck and driven to nearby mountains where they were abandoned, according to International Christian Concern.

The charity reports that Omar Rodriguez, regional president of the Baptist community, has made arrangements for the expelled families to be housed in Guadalajara, the nearest large city. The city has also been asked to dispatch police patrols to transport them to safety.

Tuxpan de Bolaños is one of five centers of the Wixárika indigenous people, who have become subjects of academic study.

ICC says the incident is just the latest incident in years of persecution of evangelical Christians in rural Mexico.

"Despite the lack of interest by the Mexican federal government to address this alarming trend, there are those in the United States government who are working to end this persecution," ICC reports.
