Chinese Authorities Order Ban on Children in Church Services… Justin awestruck!

While China’s notorious one-child policy is in the process of being reversed and the economy is increasingly run by free market-ish principles, China is still known for its civil rights and religious liberty abuses. Last year, the wife of a Chinese pastor was suffocated to death after a bulldozer buried her alive. She was attempting to stop the destruction of their church building. The case highlighted the lack of legal protection afforded Christians in China. Over the last few years, the Chinese government has systematically removed crosses from church buildings. China’s latest sign of religious intolerance is found in the atheistic government’s efforts to begin banning children from religious services.
