CWN Editor's Note: A Chinese bishop has said that he would prefer persecution to membership in the government-backed Patriotic Association. Bishop Vincent Guo Xijin agreed to step down from his post as Bishop of Mindong, at the Vatican’s request, to make way for the government-backed Bishop Vincent Zhan Silu. But he refused to accept membership in, or pledge loyalty to, the Patriotic Association.
