Xi Replaces Pictures of Christ With Himself

Xi does not find this inspiring for some reason.

 

Chinese officials and residents in a rural area of Jiangxi province have revealed a government plan to “melt the hard ice” in the hearts of Christians towards communism by denying them pivotal poverty relief packages if they do not replace images of Jesus in their households with photos of President Xi Jinping.

One official stated that the move was necessary because Christians are “ignorant” and need to be taught to worship the state, not God.

The move is the latest in a string of crackdowns against Christianity in the Xi era. Xi’s regime views Christianity, which has experienced a popularity boom in the past decade, as a challenge to the supremacy of the Communist Party’s growing cult of personality around Xi himself.

Why doesn’t Xi have posters of this guy?

    I’m sure little Justin will bring this up with the Chinese.

    • He’ll have ugly pictures of himself.

        Lord, let it not be a talking picture. Can’t stand looking at him and even more so to listen to him.

      Justin will be inspired to do the same in Canada. Nothing inspires Justin more than selfies of himself posted everywhere!

        Narcissus has competition. Now if only Justin would fall into a pond and drown.

      • Just like the Chinese and Cuban dictators he admires.

    Xi doesn’t understand that real human beings are corrupt, evil and self serving. Xi doesn’t understand Jesus was none of these things according to the beliefs. He was God incarnate and by definition perfect.
    Xi is not Jesus.

      That’s not the point. It’s the typical tyrant’ s rage that He’s not monopolizing the love and attention. It’s the narcissistic feelz they crave. Like tweakers looking for the next meth hit

        I understand what you’re getting at. What I’m getting at is that believers are not going to go along with this substitution.

        • xavier

          No matter Cultural revolution 2,0 will take care of that

    • Alain

      Perhaps Xi believes he is God. After all he is a communist and they know they are all perfect.

        It is nothing new. The First Emperor of China had the mindset that he was one step off of being a God, and he was obsessed with grandiose building projects and immortality.

        Chairman Mao was a 20th century version of that Emperor…

    Bwhahahaha. Christains are ignorant because they don’t worship the state.golly where have I heard this before? O yeah since the beginning of Christanity where Christains refuse to through incense at Caesar’s statute.
    And thst worked out so well for the Empire eh?
    Yeah the chicom’s are both scared and jealous. Typical commies only the party can be loved but never will be.

      CBC News worships the state.

      • xavier

        But I ignore both

      • Alain

        The CBC believes itself to be the state.

    It goes without saying that if you hate Christians you probably don’t have a lot of Respect for the Jews.
    I somehow feel a wee bit pleased over this fact.
