Former US ambassador says Vatican should push China on religious freedom
May 14, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: Sam Brownback, who was US ambassador for religious freedom during the Trump administration, has argued that the Vatican should press China harder in demands for religious freedom, noting a new State Department report that lists China as a “country of political concern” regarding religious liberty. Brownback said that the US urged the Vatican not to renew a secret agreement with Beijing on the appointment of bishops, because “this is not a regime we should be negotiating with.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
