Officials in the Swiss canton of Geneva have banned evangelical churches that aren't affiliated with the government from baptizing people in Lake Geneva. "Only organizations permitted to have relations with the state can request authorization for a public religious event," said officials in a statement. Religious organizations that don't have governmental approval can conduct events only in private.
