Chinese Regime Calls Trend of Turning from Communism To Christianity/Religion a “Serious Disease”

While Christianity is suffering setbacks in the United States, in China it’s growing at a rapid pace. That fact hasn’t gone unnoticed by the Chinese Communist Party, and it terrifies them, Progressives Today reports.

The South China Morning Post reports that the main Chinese anti-corruption government agency is warning of the dangers of people turning from the Marxist-Leninist ideology to Christianity and religion. Even calling it a “serious disease”:

China’s top graft watchdog on Monday warned that stricter disciplinary measures must be enforced to prevent cases of abuse in which local cadres carry out anti-corruption operations without higher authorities’ permission.

The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection also said a “lapse in ideology” had become a “serious disease”. Cadres abandoning communist ideology and turning to religion was a problem for the party, it said.

…the CCDI reiterated the importance of cadres adhering to the “iron rule” of not following any religious beliefs.
