China denies demolition campaign against churches

Catholic World News - April 24, 2014

Chinese Communist officials have denied waging a demolition campaign against churches in the eastern province of Zhejiang.

A dozen churches have reportedly been slated for demolition, and crosses have been removed from some churches.

The Daily Telegraph reported that a local official who chairs Zhejiang’s ethnic and religious affairs committee said that Christianity’s growth is “too excessive and too haphazard.” According to the Washington Post, thousands of Chinese Christians surrounded one church in an attempt to save it.
