The CCP has installed cameras in places of worship to ensure complete control and punish those who don’t worship according to its regulations.
While the CCP governs the Three-Self Church, many of its venues are not issued religious activity registration certificates and are subsequently stifled and shut.
To accelerate the “sinicization” of religion, China’s regime compels preachers to indoctrinate congregations and turns places of worship into propaganda centers.
The CCP’s campaign to remove religious symbols from places of worship continues unabated, as believers are harassed in places of worship and at home.
In the past year, not only unregistered house churches but also state-controlled Three-Self churches in Hubei suffered severe clampdowns.
Sending “sensitive” messages, even reposting or liking anything the government deems “harmful” to its regime, may put you under investigation.
Amid intensifying religious suppression in China, even membership in an official church no longer guarantees believers that they can practice their faith.
Even state-run churches are not spared CCP’s endless harassments. Two directors of Three-Self churches in Henan died after crackdowns on their places of worship.
Rules and regulations prohibiting religious funerary rituals are being adopted across China, as the government promotes “civilized secular” traditions.
