All traditions of Christianity can become victims of organized corruption by criminal groups, though it affects mostly the more outspoken Christians who play prominent roles in social or public life, or hold leadership positions, both at community and national levels. Because they are seen as a threat to the preservation of the indigenous culture and traditions, the rural Christian indigenous population of a number of autonomous territories in Colombia experience hostilities. Numerous Christians have been displaced from their lands, violence targeting Christian women is on the increase and church sermons are monitored.
