CWN Editor's Note: “Christian funerals have been banned in some areas of China as the communist government begins to enforce a set of repressive regulations on religious practices,” the report explains. “In the eastern province of Zhejiang, the government has put in force a set of Regulations on Centralized Funeral Arrangement, which bans priests from attending funeral prayers outside a religious place.”
