    Not in an over-dramatic, Hunchback of Notre Dame "SANCTUARY!" fashion, but protection from persecution.

    Kind of I guess, depends who you are hiding from to be honest and whether they have the decency(? ) to stay away from the church...

    Not in the traditional sense no..

    I dont know if the priests would hide you from the police, no.

    Depends on the priest and the crime I guess..
    Dont think the police would have any qualms about entering the church if they knew you were in there :no:

    I think it would have to be one of those seriously Christian and religious country with a law that upholds law for God and doesn't make up their own without some "it says in the Bible" reasoning.
