Thai churches urge peace

Thousands of anti-government demonstrators protested in Thailand, leaving at least one person dead on Sept. 2.

Leaders declared a state of emergency.

Christians asked local churches to promote reconciliation and authorities to use non-violence.

Christians make up less than 1 percent of the mostly Buddhist country.

Pradit Takerngrangsarit, president of Payap University and a leader in the Thai-based Christian Conference of Asia, said that local churches should promote reconciliation rather than creating more conflict.
