There are many Christians in Communist China that are in prison for their Christian beliefs. Back in the days of Apartheid many local and state government passed laws that restricted investment in South Africa as a method of pressuring that government to grant greater freedom to its population. We need to do all we can to insure greater freedom for the Christians of Communist China.
The Communist Chinese have an official Christian Church. It is not a free church it is a church controlled by the Communist government. Imagine a church run by atheists! This is another reason the people of the US need to seek new markets and new business partners. The Chinese are oppressing Christians by jailing them if the spread the gospel beyond the official government church.
Freedom of religion is a basic human right and like all totalitarian governments the Chinese Communists are oppressing their people and preventing them from worshiping God as they choose. Trade with China is essential for China but it is not essential for us. We can and should buy from other nations and look to manufacture more here domestically. The Obama Administration should look to remove obstacles in the form of lawsuit reform, environment reform, high taxes to encourage more businesses to come home from China; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
