Sulzberger's Slimes sticking up for Chinese Christians and their cross displays?
Coming from the same bunch of ACLU-loving Manhattan Marxist Atheists who react like Count Dracula at the mere sight of the
cross, this unprecedented concern for "religious freedom" is truly shocking. From whence this sudden love of Christianity and the cross by Sulzberger's Slimes?
Like Count Dracula, Sulzberger recoils at the sight of a crucifix. Why is The Slimes suddenly so concerned about
the removal of crosses in China? (Note the Star of David worn by Bela Lugosi in the original Count Dracula - 1931)
It should be obvious to regular readers of The
Anti-New York Times that Sulzberger's "defense" of Chinese Christianity is only the latest pathetic pretext
to take another cheap shot at a member of the anti-Globalist Russia-China power bloc. But in spite of Sulzberger's sleazy
motives, it would be most unwelcome news to hear that the new China is reverting back to its hard core intolerance for religion.
But is it?
A closer inspection of the rarely-read fine print from the article itself reveals that the horrible
headline is a misleading piece of Yellow Shock Journalism. (surprise-surprise) Following are some very interesting
nuggets of gold buried beneath writer Ian Johnson's mounds of Marxist manure -- with our analysis in blue:
Times: Resistance is growing among China’s expanding Christian community ...
"expanding Christian community". That's a sure
sign that the new China truly is tolerant of religion. Thanks for that concession, Mr. Johnson.
NY Times: ... to a government
campaign to remove crosses from churches in a wealthy coastal province.
Analysis: "a" province? As in only 1? There are 34 provincial-level administrative
units in China (23 provinces, 4 major Municipalities, and 7 autonomous or special administrative regions) The controversy
involves only 1 of those units, but the headline and sub-headline deliberately give the false impression
of a nationwide crackdown.
NY Times: The campaign initially centered on one church, which was torn down last year after officials accused
it of having violated zoning restrictions on height and size.
Analysis: "violated zoning restrictions on height and size"? Oh, so it's a zoning thing?
Well, guess what Mr. Johnson; here in the U.S.A., or any other country that values order, when you violate local zoning ordinances,
your stuff gets torn down. Let's not spin this into some sort of religious persecution when you know damn well that it is
Times: Then the campaign was broadened to include crosses atop buildings. Local church members now say they have
been told that free-standing crucifixes are being taken down from all Protestant and Roman Catholic churches across Zhejiang
Analysis: Again, the writer offers no evidence whatsoever that this move is anti-Christian. A bit of excessive bureaucracy
perhaps, but rules are rules.
have ordinances. In Victorian Cape May, NJ, all homes in the historic section must retain painted wooden exteriors - no brick-face
or aluminum siding.
NY Times: That has caused sometimes spectacular protests, with believers climbing spires to shield the
crosses, as well as creative efforts to bypass the regulations. Analysis: So, the
Chinese are free to stage "spectacular protests", eh? Perhaps China is not so "repressive" after all?
More surprising has been the growing boldness of government-approved
Analysis: "growing boldness" -- again, this contradicts the media-crafted
image of a brutally repressive China. You can be sure, that if Mao Tse Tung (portrayed as a heroic "agrarian reformer"
in the putrid pages of the 1940's Times!) was still in charge, these parishioners wouldn't be so "bold". They'd
NY Times: About
half of the estimated 60 million Christians in China attend churches approved by the government.
million Christians in China"?! Wow. Factor in the Buddhist and Confucian revivals and it appears that "communist"
China is becoming more moral and more Godly than the degenerate West. Even the one-child policy has been lifted. Thanks for
that bit of truth, Mr. Johnson. We had no idea that there were so many Christians in China!
NY Times: Other provinces
with big Christian populations have not begun similar crackdowns.
Analysis: This admission again
indicates that this is NOT a Chinese "crackdown" on Christianity -- just a single province regulating
the local architecture.
But as Zhejiang’s removal of the cross campaign escalates,
it has also triggered unprecedented backlash. The strong response from Christians had exceeded the government’s
Analysis: Again, it seems as though folks in China feel perfectly free
to raise a ruckus against the local government when they get pissed off. That's a good sign! Push the issue here in America
and they might brand you a "domestic terrorist"
Contrary to Slimes' slander, Buddism, Christianity, Confucianism, Islam and morality
are, with the government's blessing, all making a big comeback in China -- even
among Party members.
The Zhejiang provincial government declared that churches could not have free-standing crosses atop spires. In a
36-page set of directives, the government said crosses had to be set into the facade of the church, and could be no more
than 10 percent of the building’s height.
Analysis: So you see, dear reader, there is neither
a Chinese "ban" nor a "crackdown" on crosses, at all! It's all about local ordinances
- in a single province - regulating the size of the crosses and spires.
NY Times: Last year, numerous protests seemed to cause the government to back down....There were some
indications over the weekend that the campaign might be slowing, with members of a congregation in Cangnan County south of
Wenzhou saying their parish had received a notice that the campaign would stop.
Analysis: So, even though the
administrators of this single province are within the bounds of normal government functioning to
regulate building structures, they are backing down to the will of the Christians anyway! Where's this "crackdown on civil liberties" that we keep hearing about in China
and Russia? It seems to this reporter that the ex-Communist giants are becoming freer and Godlier by the day as the degenerate
Marxist West slides in the opposite direction. Seriously, can you imagine if American Christians dared to defy zoning rules
with such passion? The Slimes would paint them as fanatics and call for their arrest while whining about "separation
of Church and State"!
misleading reporting and rigged head-lining such as this, it is no small wonder that China has booted the disgusting deceivers
of the New York Slimes out of its country. America should follow suit.
Some estimates put the number of Chinese Christians
as high as 100 million - and growing fast. According to the London Telegraph, China is on course to become 'world's most Christian
nation' within 15 years (here)
"The number of Christians in Communist China is growing so steadily that it by 2030 it could have more churchgoers than
"If everyone in China believed
in Jesus then we would have no more need for police stations. There would be no more bad people and therefore no more crime."

as though this Jinping character is the next Mao Tse Tung.
