    I’ve seen dozens of reports of this for the past few months. So, why is this guy making a big deal of it now? And nobody believes China is going to bow to outside pressure on this. Here’s just one of their comments:

    China says Xinjiang has long been its territory and claims it is bringing prosperity and development to the vast, resource-rich region. Many among Xinjiang's native ethnic groups say they are being denied economic options in favor of migrants from elsewhere in China and that their Muslim faith and unique culture and language are being gradually eradicated.


    In other words, they recognize the danger Islam represents to their government and are taking steps to defend against it.

    And then comes this:

    China Official Says West Using Christianity to 'Subvert' Power

    Seems the Chinese leaders are an all-in-one group when it comes to anyone or anything they feel presents a problem for their rule.

    Western forces are trying to use Christianity to influence China's society and even "subvert" the government, a senior official said, warning that Chinese Christians needed to follow a Chinese model of the religion.

    China's constitution guarantees religious freedom, but since President Xi Jinping took office six years ago, the government has tightened restrictions on religions seen as a challenge to the authority of the ruling Communist Party.

    The government has cracked down on underground churches, both Protestant and Catholic, even as it seeks to improve relations with the Vatican.

    He wants a probe, people in hell want ice water. It's unlikely either will get what they want.

    The Vatican is always okay with the oppression of non-Catholiic sects in these commie countries; the Vatican's interest is in getting themselves an exclusive monopoly from the Red Chinese, and they will make wonderful deals to get one. They helped Muslims conquer the Byzantine Empire, for instance

    The Muslims? Nobody need care; they're not a religion, they're a political ideology and about as desirable as an AIDS epidemic or the Plague.. In their case, 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend' meme is delusional.
