New reports have emerged this week of a further escalation of the Chinese government’s desperation to crack down on Christians and stop the spread of Christianity in a country known for its robust church of committed disciples. In the latest incidents, China’s children from two schools in Zhejiang Province were asked to fill out a form stating they did not follow a religion.
In the first school, more than 200 children declared they were Christians. Reportedly, teachers took these children aside to warn them and demand they write “No religion.” New forms were then passed out, and this time around 100 children still wrote that they were Christians.
