CWN Editor's Note: Although they represent only 12% of the population of Hong Kong, Christians have played a key role in the struggle to preserve democracy there, the Wall Street Journal notes. Jimmy Lai, the publisher who now faces 14 months in prison for opposing authoritarian rule, is a practicing Catholic, as is Martin Lee, the “father of Hong Kong democracy.” Cardinal Joseph Zen remains a leader of the democracy movement as well.
