Formally, Colombia is a modern democratic country where the rule of law is established and religious freedom is guaranteed. Large areas of the country are, however, under the control of criminal organisations, drug cartels, revolutionaries and paramilitary groups. In a context of generalised impunity, all inhabitants of Colombia suffer from the conflict that has lasted for decades, but Christians are specifically vulnerable to such hostilities. Ethnic Antagonism is restricted to indigenous communities. This engine expresses itself mainly in the family, community and church spheres. Sometimes, this engine overlaps with Organised Corruption and crime, particularly when guerrillas conspire with indigenous tribal leaders against Christians.
