Vatican Issues Condemnation of China's 'Hostile Acts' against Catholic Church Comments

We urge our readers around the globe to pray for the persecuted Church in China and raise a loud cry against the failure of Western governments, including the current administration in the United States, to stand up against the egregious violation of the Right to Religious Freedom in mainland China.

    Jose is correct. It is time to boycott goods and services made in China. To do otherwise supports the Chinese governments efforts against the Catholic Church. If we want to stop the spread of this atrocity, then we need to stop supporting those doing it. We cannot wait for our own government to stand up to these thugs. If it says "Made in China", do not buy it.

    My fiance is from China, and believe me there is Religious freedom there. Her grandmother a christian preacher and this is very open christian family which even became president of the power company. The thing about China is that you have to follow their political rules. You're right, China isnt a democracy, it is still China. But at the same time they are willing to work with any and all religions as long as the religious establishment is willing to put down their political swords. Sorry folks, but China isnt Europe. You cant just go in there and start demanding stuff. Quite frakly the west has no political wiggle room in china anyway condering that they are paying for our wars and mortgages.

    Deacon Fournier, great article. Yes indeed it is time for the faithful to get active. First, our Leadership (USCCB) needs to come out of hiding and actively and publically challenge the Democrat Party to stand up to the Communist Chinese to allow human rights and freedom of religion. This needs to be a continuous effort and not a one time motion.

    If the Chinese Government relents and make reparations for the outrageous acts of religious intolerance particularly to the Catholic religion, we have to embark upon a movement to boycott Chinese goods and services.

    This is the action of Henry VIII all over again, only now in China. Destroy the Church by creating a false copy of it and making it an instrument of the secular government and its policies. God forbid.
