It explores church-state relations and concludes that expressions of faith have become a risk for religious leaders and for the church as an institution if they contradict the political interests of the Nicaraguan dictatorship. There has been violence against religious leaders. Over 200,000 people have left Nicaragua, including religious leaders and Christians in general.
