Title: China cracks down on church and dissidents
Post by: Hugo Chavez on April 11, 2011, 08:20:17 PM
Artists and Christians have become the latest targets in China's biggest crackdown on the Communist Party's critics in decades, with a leading Beijing "underground" church being left homeless, reports the Australian.

Beijing's Shougang Church has about 1000 members but is a so-called "underground" or "house" church that operates beyond the auspices of the Communist Party's three official Christian churches, which include a "Catholic" church that sits outside the authority of the Vatican.

The church's landlord is refusing to renew its lease under orders from security forces.

"This is the cross that the church has to bear," Pastor Jin Tianming was reported to have told his congregation. "We need a formal approval from the authorities to allow us to find an indoor meeting place. If not, we will not waver in worshipping outdoors."

So you believe denying people their freedom of religion is something good.  You believe what China has done over the years, arrest, torture and kill Christians is something good.  You believe what Stalin did, arrest, torture and kill hundreds of thousands of Christians is something good.    :-\

1) Stalin was a good man who did a lot of good for his adopted country!

2) have a look back at what the christians were doing in the dark and middle ages and how many wars christianity and the crusades started and how many people they killed, then also look at the last 400 years and what chrstians tried doing to the american natives.
