ICC Note:

In the last few years, Christians in China have experienced a lot of persecution by being forced to close and demolish their churches and not being able to practice their faith freely. Unfortunately, President Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist party have expressed their future plans to harm and continue to persecute Christians in the China.

 

10/19/2017 China  (UCANEWS) – President Xi Jinping’s opening speech for the Congress of China’s ruling Communist Party on Oct. 18 took a decidedly, rigid socialist tone, signaling increased state control over the country which is expected to result in an increase in the persecution of religions.

Xi is expected to emerge from the 10-day summit with an iron-fisted grip on all aspects of the Party including the elite 25 man Politburo and its seven member Standing Committee. Designed by Deng Xiaoping to be a collective decision-making body with its leader first amongst equals, China watchers say Xi has turned this on its head and is now a virtual dictator.

In his opening speech, Xi advocated that the country’s undemocratic system is a model for other countries to follow and laid out two ambitious “centennial goals.” The first was to build a “moderately prosperous society” by wiping out poverty by 2021, the 100th anniversary of the Party’s founding. The second was to turn China into a “fully developed nation” by 2049, the 100th anniversary of the Party winning the civil war.
