Beautification Campaign Demolishes Churches

Government officials in China’s coastal Zhejiang province have ordered the destruction of yet another church building as part of an ongoing campaign against so-called illegal buildings.

CHR Comment: The Communist government of China enforces a beautification campaign that allows them to demolish church buildings that are, for example, displaying the cross too high. The article describes several examples from this ongoing campaign, including the death of a woman who protested it. China Aid President Bof Fu believes the campaign is motived by the fears of Communist Party members who are atheists and feel threatened by the continuing growth of Christianity.
