A recently published report on the state of affairs in China revealed the country has engaged in systemic prosecution of Christian individuals, as well as those belonging to other religious minorities.
This is nothing new coming from China, which performed gruesome acts on its Uyghur population for years, with little to no criticism from the rest of the world. They only watched as people were enslaved, tortured, and murdered in China’s concentration camps.
Xi Jinping isn’t happy with the surge of Christian converts emerging in China
The research was published by Michael Cunningham, who called on the US and other allies to address this growing issue before it escalates beyond repair.
China does not only persecute Muslims; it also persecutes Tibetans and christians, and believers who chose to have independent churches that are not controlled by the Chinese government. They get sentenced to long prison times.

Cunningham explains that Christianity has been on the rise in China for the past couple of years; some even believe the country will have more Christians than the US by 2030.
However, ever since they’ve been in power, the CCP forced an atheistic worldview on China’s people. They’ve gone to great lengths to excommunicate or prosecute Christians and those belonging to other religious minority groups in the country.
Of course, if you take a look at China’s constitution, you’ll find no mention of such acts, but rather, the country prides itself on offering religious freedoms like no place else, all while the ruling party demolishes churches and other religious objects.
This has been happening for decades in Communist China, but our media is selective in their reporting so it essentially goes unnoticed
I mean raiding peaceful worshippers in their sanctuary is basically the lowest you can get. The question is why does our MSM HATE CHRISTIANITY?! pic.twitter.com/giit29ddVN

It’s estimated that anywhere between 30 and 130 million Christians currently live in China, divided between the CCP-approved churches and the underground ones still hiding in hope that help is on the way.
The CCP has slowly been working towards its goal of diminishing the influence religion has on Chinese culture and the everyday life of an average Chinese person, but they’ve taken on a much faster pace ever since Xi Jinping became general secretary in 2012.
What’s more, he secured himself yet another five-year term in October last year. Xi will continue his oppressive regime for many more years, leaving no hope to the minority groups that choose to remain in China.
After Muslims, good news for Christians of China…..Christians in China asked to replace images of Jesus Christ with Xi Jinping, because "Jesus Christ won't save them from poverty but President Xi Jinping will".

It’s hard to tell what the US can actually do in terms of assisting these oppressed minority groups in China. We’re struggling to protect Taiwan as it is; this would only prove to be even more difficult, considering we’d have to affect mainland China and its people.
