This is so very sad. Whether or not one is a Christian, we all need to stand in opposition to persecution of any form, including for religious faith. Although our country has taken a stance on Hong Kong, we have not exhibited leadership towards pushing on China with respect to their treatment of Uighers, which is horrific, or the church generally. Our President more seems to admire the rather unfettered rule that Xi Jinping seems to have in accordance with his status of ruler for life.
I love China and the Chinese people, having grown up there and from subsequent trips, they are so impressive in so many ways with such a rich culture and heritage, we can only hope that they shed these destructive ways in their critical role as a world leader.
