The freedom of belief is the common value all over the world. The Constitution of the PRC also states that residents in the PRC shall have freedom of religious belief. However, like other fundamental right protected by the Constitution, the freedom of belief is also a totally beautiful lie. And as an atheistic party, the CPC have kept suppressing, persecuting those people who hold on various beliefs and trampling on people’s freedom of religious belief since it was founded, which led to innumerable humanitarian catastrophes.
In recent years Chinese government has completely unveiled its hypocrisy through suppressing the underground church. And according to the report provided by China Aid Association, there are 2,027 Chinese Christians suffering persecution in the Olympic year.
Bo Xiqiu, the president of the association, indicated that more than 539 Christians suffered persecution in Beijing this year, a sharp increase by 118% compared that (114 Christians) of the year of 2007; and there are more than 2000 disciples (only including those we can get information of them) all over the country (only including those we can get information of them) who were arrested and placed in detention. The all known cases that the house church suffered the persecution involve 17 provinces and 2 municipalities, among which the condition of Henan Province and Beijing is most serious, followed by Xinjiang, Shandong and Zhejiang Provinces. The number of cases about Christians’ suffering in the report of 2008 was just calculated in the conservative way. Compared to the data of 2008, there were much more cases in 2009 and 2010. The 2000 cases in the report are just the ones that can be investigated and subject to the association’s confirmation. I absolutely believed that there must be many people who were placed in the re-education camp or detention center without being known by the association. Therefore, Bo emphasized that the truth that thousands of Christians was deprived of their freedom of religious belief revealed in the report is only the tip of the iceberg.
The author has many Chinese Christian friends, who have been arrested for many times for they are reluctant to register into the official church. And that made their family lived with fear. Only after fleeing to America dare they take part in the activities held by the church and enjoy the freedom of belief.
And the author considers that the conduct of the CPC that trampled on the Constitution and fundamental human rights, persecuted the Christians and Catholics, and suppressed the Falun Gong Cult goes against the god’s will. And that will be bound to cause widespread indignation and discontent. The activities of secede from the Party held by the Falun Gong group is is a kind of meritorious work eliminating the evil and saving the whole world. Those believers who suffered the persecution should respond to the call enthusiastically and make a clean break with the CPC.
