CHINA has taken extreme measures to wipe out all traces of Christianity in the country, by tearing down posters of Jesus and replacing them with images of President Xi Jinping.
The country’s ruling Communist party has chosen to eradicate the faith amongst its 1.38 billion residents, going as far as banning children from visiting churches.
For the government, China’s Christian community has long been a source of embarrassment, resulting in bans on the Bible and on public displays of the cross.
Church leadership is also required to request approval from the Communist party and even church teachings must now be in line with party ideals. …
Many of China’s Christian communities have responded in a time-honoured fashion by continuing their congregational worship in secret. …
Move over, Jesus
Diversity? Ha! Not in China:
It has become the primary focus of President Xi’s plans to eradicate “differences” between Chinese communities across the entire country.
Marx’s pet hate was Christianity, because it was a political and moral force that stood in the way of the left’s reshaping of society.
