Slovakia: Church Registration Becomes More Difficult

The Slovak Spectator reports that Slovakia’s parliament has approved a draft amendment to the country’s Law on Religious Freedom that would place further limits on church registrations. According to the proposed law, new churches would need the signatures of 20,000 adult members who have both Slovak citizenship and nationality. Previously, the 20,000 signatures could be obtained from non-members who supported a new community. As of last year, Slovakia’s population was estimated to be about 5.4 million.
