Red China Fighting Religion...Again

This report, from the Italian news website AsiaNews, is based on a leaked document from the Chinese Communist Party. The document was originally put on the website of the Canadian Protestant group The Voice of the Martyrs.

The dictatorship of the Party, now under the leadership of Hu Jintao, is frightened by the increasing number of youth and Party cadre becoming devout Catholics, Protestants, Muslims or members of the Falun Gong cult. So a paper was written by the Party's Department of Propaganda which outlined an eight-step program to further marinate China in Marxist atheism.

But the Party is fighting a war it will never win. As Chesterton said long ago:

"If there were no God, there would be no Atheists."

And even among the Communists in China, Mao Zedong is still reverenced as the "Great Helmsman", along with Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin. They are the substitutes for God Alimightly among them. As Chesterton wrote in Lunacy and Letters:

"Even in an empire of atheists the dead man is always sacred

Humanity is religious by nature. Communism is always attempting to change that nature for the worse. In the end, the Chinese Communists will fail, as have their counterparts in Russia, Cuba and Eastern Europe. Nonetheless, let us pray for the poor souls persecuted in China, that God may one day free that sad land from the tyranny of Marxist atheism.
