China’s open season on Christians (with the blessing of the West)

Apr 26, 2021 by

THERE is a shameful, ongoing silence in the West about the plight of Christians, the most persecuted people in the world. 

Like everything else in our racism-obsessed society, Christianity is viewed through the prism of identity politics. The Left’s dominance over the discourse on oppression means that Christians are categorised as rich, white people, therefore maligned by our cultural and political elite and deemed unworthy of help.

Yet most Christians are not white and many live in dire poverty, risking prosecution, torture or death to practise their faith. Thanks to the rise of authoritarian regimes such as China, and the demise of the once free and strong West, their plight is deteriorating.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is accelerating its persecution of minority religious groups in China as part of its ‘modernisation’ campaign. China’s imprisonment of Uighur Muslims in concentration camps is ongoing. Chinese Jews, mainly living in Kaifeng, are banned from practising their faith and are subjected to surveillance and interrogation. 

But it’s now Christians who are being subjected to worsening oppression. Once one minority group is targeted it’s an easy step to persecute another, especially if the world remains silent. Around 97.2million Christians live in China, almost seven per cent of the country’s total population.
