WEB Notes: China is banning everything “church” unless it is “approved” ahead of time by the communist nation. That is not freedom of religion. As bad as things may be in the US, we are doing far better than our Chinese counterparts. Make sure to keep them in your prayers. It is a lot harder for them to be Christians than you and I.
China is moving its religious censorship to the next frontier: the internet.
The communist country’s State Administration for Religious Affairs (SARA) has proposed new regulations that would make conducting online church services illegal, according to AsiaNews, which first broke the story.
In order to establish a religious website, the outlet reported, those involved would have to receive express permission from the Chinese government and face judgment over whether they and their religious beliefs are “morally healthy and politically reliable.”
