The latest crackdowns are directed at religious symbols. Chinese authorities are removing and cutting down crosses even those on "state authorized" churches. Despite their efforts to control Christianity, churches of all denominations continue to thrive and grow in China where there are more Catholics than there are Canadians in Canada.
Christians are the most persecuted religious group around the world yet we have leaders in this country that will stand up and decry the non-existent threat of Islamophobia but remain silent about the real and growing threats to Christians. What's happening in China may not be as bad yet as what's happening to Christians in Syria and Iraq, but make no mistake, what we're seeing are first steps in a very bad direction so now would be a good time to take back those expressions of admiration and say "No" to what's happening in China.
