China Tells Citizens to Report Parents Who ‘Lure’ Kids into Religion


In a new set of education rules, the Chinese Communist Party is urging citizens to spy on their neighbors and report parents who raise their children in a religious faith or have them attend religious services.

  • “Chinese law prohibits children under the age of 18 from receiving any religious education, and the government approved Christian church, the ‘Three-Self Patriotic Movement,’ explicitly bans its members from bringing their children up in the Christian faith, labeling the practice ‘brainwashing.'”

    Informative Breitbart article. I remember the Communist-instituted “Three-Self Movement” from years ago. Surprising to see that it’s still around. But it goes to show that although Communist China has opened up dramatically commerce-wise, the religious repression is the same. As well as freedom of the press, free speech, and political freedom. And the Communists reneged on their promise regarding Hong Kong autonomy (if memory serves, the agreement was originally brokered by Jimmy Carter in exchange for Britain ceding the island to China). But after the Chinese Government took control Hong Kong autonomy was dumped, and Chinese students who took to the streets in protest in 2014 could never protest again.

      its is text book fascism,which always grows out of all encompassing government .communism.
      Lefties love to howl about right wing fascism but I fail to see how right wing, being libertarian anarchy can birth a tight knit movement such as the fascisti..
