Evangelicals in Mexico have expressed concern over the growing religious intolerance following an attempt by authorities to remove a monument to the Bible in Mexico's capital city.

At the end of October, Cuauhtemoc Delegation authorities from the Federal District sent a team of workers to remove a monument to the Bible built at the historical center of Mexico City, according to the Latin America and Caribbean Communication Agency (ALC).

Formally unveiled on Jan. 29 by the Bible Society of Mexico (SBM), the sculpture of granite, marble and bronze bears the verse from Revelation 1:3 in the NIV Bible
