Hong Kong demonstration protests Chinese campaign against Christian influence

April 25, 2016

Cardinal Joseph Zen led a group of Christians in Hong Kong in a demonstration against the Chinese government's campaign against Christian churches.

"We need to speak out, to take action, to prevent this from spreading," the cardinal said. The protests called public attention to the demolition of thousands of crosses on church buildings in mainland China during the last two years, and the imprisonment of Christian leaders.

    I once read that the Chinese were trying to figure out the reason the USA was so successful as they copied everything we do. They determined that it was the faith of the people that made us free and prosperous. But the competition with God is just too much for those in power to allow. Until it is allowed nothing will change. God really does pick winners and losers. We would do well to remember that.

    I stand with the Christians in China. May God be with them in their time of suffering.
