The NY Times reported that China’s Communist Party has cleared the way for President Xi Jinping to stay in power indefinitely by announcing it intends to abolish term limits. Jinping’s agenda revolves around: a global infrastructure plan; reorganizing the military; bulking up domestic security; and enforcing “ideological purity” in schools and the media. To the latter, I was recently doing some research per: how that “ideological purity” is affecting Christians in the country. Above ground Christian/Catholic churches in China are tightly monitored and in recent years (since Jinping got into office) persecution of Chinese underground church Christians has intensified measurably — with both violent and non-violent methods, according to the US-based NGO Freedom House… Our administration would graphically point to all this and concurrently put in place sanctions in an attempt to curb some of these flagrant Chinese government human rights abuses. To look the other way would simply be tantamount to a huge American-collective spiritual mistake. Our campaign does, indeed, come at foreign relations in a different light — but its an approach long overdue in this country.
