    Beijing police halt unapproved church service

    article

    Leaders of the unregistered Shouwang church had told members to gather at an open-air venue in Beijing for Sunday morning services, but police, apparently alerted to their plans, taped off the area and took away people who showed up to take part.
    Amazing that there are still people in free countries who use their freedoms to defend and justify the actions of these thugs...

    Ai Weiwei, an internationally known avant-garde artist who is also an outspoken government critic, became the highest-profile person targeted in the crackdown on dissent when he was detained at a Beijing airport a week ago. The Foreign Ministry says he is being investigated for alleged economic crimes, though Beijing police have yet to confirm he is in custody.
    And lest we forget, Ai is still in prison. "Economic crimes"... what a laugh...

    Man, it must be nice to be a conservative because you get to just assign whatever crazy opinion comes to mind to the opposition.

    The top Chinese apologist on DP has ignored these threads of late... probably getting sick of being exposed...

    Unfortunately, there ARE people on various discussion boards, including Yahoo! who defend this crap...

    Like WHAT in Taiwan? Most people here aren't that functional in English and VERY few outside the old guard KMT set would defend ANYTHING going on in China. Taiwanese, by contrast, are among the most religiously tolerant people in the world...

    The Chinese government is focused on control, that is all. People following their religious convictions are not a threat to the state. This is true of Falungong, Protestants, Catholics and others...

    The ironic thing is that the Taiping Rebellion of the mid-19th century is celebrated by the CCP and yet that was a religiously-inspired movement against foreigners in China...
