Chinese Officials Warn Christianity Is ‘Enormous Harm’ To Society
9 May 2019 International News
Communist Party members in a central Chinese province were told Christianity is harmful to their country during a recent seminar.
Religious experts see it as a sign the government is continuing its crackdown on Christianity and other religious minorities, with Christian persecution at historic highs around the world.
The Hebi Municipal Radio Administrative Bureau gave a presentation titled “Christianity’s Enormous Harm on China’s Security,” to party members in the city of Hebi in China’s Henan province, reported ChinaAid, a Christian human rights organization that promotes religious freedom and rule of law in China.
“The Chinese government often views religions, including Christianity, as foreign attempts to undermine its rule, even though there is no evidential basis for such a claim,” the ChinaAid report states. “As a result, they often try to suppress religious adherents, and they openly forbid Communist Party members from practicing a religion.”
The telecommunications agency allegedly encouraged the communist party members to maintain “correct views” about religion and avoid being persuaded by its ideology.
