On February 27, a Chinese Catholic church had its crosses, statues, and bell towers demolished by order of Communist authorities. Before and after.
You would think Christianity is not as big a threat as Islam over there.
There is going to be a very big, very destructive war.
And it’s coming soon.
With Xi now declaring “President for Life” and all.
My hearty congratulations to Pope Francis for approving of the atheist communist Chinese government’s attack on Catholic Christians. I’m sure he will soon be awarded “hero of the Communist Revolution” medal for his full cooperation in betraying the Catholic Chinese people, whom he has abandoned.
(Yes, I am being totally sarcastic and deliberately insulting to Pope Francis, because, by this action he is betraying his role as the leader of the Church.)
They may have taken down the crosses and the symbols. Heck - they could even take down the building. I’m guessing some of the older Chinese Christians have gone through more than that - the government only strengthened the church.
I was at a missionary thing for a weekend (probably 20 years ago now). The Chinese speaker was saying how much their faith has increased - and that they are praying for American Christians to be persecuted so that our faith would increase.
I thanked the speaker for his interesting talk. And ended with “But - when you go back - can you tell them to stop praying for us!?”
And now Xi is president for life.
Gehenna is going to fill up fast.
The back story is the building was unsafe for occupancy. The same as you hear about an internet cafe being shut down that had 100 computers and was a fire trap, nothing to do with internet censorship.
Pope Che would approve.
“You would think Christianity is not as big a threat as Islam over there.”
Islam is not as direct an ideological threat to Communism as Christianity is. Communism and Islam might even be able to co-exist in a state to some extent. Christianity and Communism, however, will always be enemies. They forget Communism was create, in part, to overthrown Christianity.
Communism sells ugly.
It was probably an agreed pre-condition to Bergolio’s betrayal of China’s Catholics.
So has Trump called his buddy Xi about this atrocity?
That picture now...but when Xi's cousins are forced to erect a cross on the imperial palace...well, then you'll know you've missed the Rapture but you've won one of the First Battles...
The question should be:
So has Bergoglio called his buddy Xi about this atrocity?
What does Trump have to do with it?
Thank you! I dislike this pope!
Trump is the most overtly Christian President in many years. That’s what it has to do with it.
Trump’s not the one selling out Catholics in China; Bergoglio is.
Take your anti-Trump rhetoric elsewhere.
“Take your anti-Trump rhetoric elsewhere.”
