The Chinese government is destroying cross, burning bibles, closing churches and forcing Christian believers to sign papers renouncing their faith as the crackdown on religious congregations in Beijing and several provinces intensifies.
The suppression of religious freedoms comes as an official government campaign to Sinicize religion by demanding loyalty to the atheist Communist party and removing any potential challenge to the partys power in the country.
The persecution of Christians in China is nothing new. A report by the watchdog group Freedom House found that Christians and other religious groups in China have been persecuted since 2012, Fox News reported.
A third of all religious believers in China who belong to a faith group were also found to face high to very high levels of persecution, which ranges from bureaucratic harassment and economic exploitation to harsh prison terms and even violence, the report said.

Sounds like the Communist Democrats here in America. Hmmmmm......
What is the Chinese government so afraid of? What do they hope to accomplish?
Such tactics have NEVER worked. The Chinese government should just leave them alone.
Pope Commie’s work.
The Chicoms are in their last gasp. No Commie government has ever survived more than 75 years. Trump is ruining everything for their latest 1,000 year plan to rule the world.
The communists know that man cannot serve two masters..either a person serves God or the government.
The Chinese have seen many changes over the last decades, how western their cities have become, they do not want the old communism.
Remember all those stories from 2008-2016 about how China would be the top economy and America was on the decline. That’s how the dems wanted it.
To do this here is the American leftists' wet dream.
America is doing MAGA!
Yes, it is absolutely their goal.
Ever since Comrade Obama talked about bitter clingers, clinging to their guns and religion.
Oh, they have goals.....
"The Chinese government is....burning bibles, closing churches and forcing Christian believers to sign papers renouncing their faith..."
I watched a Chinese TV program on Netflix. It is set in a fictional Chinese city. The show is a cop/soap opera.
One of the cops in the special investigative unit always wears a cross.
This was a very popular show coming out of China but syncdicated all over Asia. Another wears USA themed T shirts. I detected no strong propaganda flavor.
Being so popular one wonders the messages the government wanted to convey. The IMDB says it had 2 billion hits for an online blurb. That it 2 billion.
The show depicts people pretty much like westerners and Japanese and Koreans. Like you say, they are not under the old communism.
They’re still at it.
It’s a good thing baker, Jack Phillips, and florist, Barronelle Stutzma, made it out of China just in time!
Even though it is “not new”, this is never talked about in the drive-by media and seldom talked about on conservative media.
Did you see Levin.s show last night? John voight(sp) told what he saw when in socialist countries.. people sad, no life, dont look at you, have nothing to look forward to.. even the buildings are sad. Why would anyone want that here..
just wanted to add his thoughts.
China is becoming a Christian nation... there are over 100 million Christians.
Its too late and the genie cannot be pushed back into the bottle.
Eventually Chinese leaders will do what Constantine did after the Roman persecution.. reach an accommodation.
Thaf day is still sometime off.
