Children Banned From Attending Church In China

The Chinese Government have banned children from attending churches in the country.This is in a bid to tighten their grip on religious activities.


The new directive by the Government also prohibits children from attending religious sermons and other related activities across China.

This control on churches in the country started several years ago when places of worship were told to remove crosses from their buildings in Zhejiang Province.

A researcher for Amnesty International, William Nee, who spoke to MailOnline UK, said, “At this point it’s unclear how widespread the ban on children attending church services are in China, but these alarming reports seem to be coming in from fairly diverse areas throughout the country.”

Nee further said that the move reflects the tightening control of religion in “particular Islam and Christianity under the present administration” in the Asian country.



She added, “In an important speech on religion last year, the President, Xi Jinping, said that young people must study science, believe in science and develop a ‘correct’ worldview and set of values.

“It could be that the government is concerned that young people going to church or religious activities may challenge their monopoly on truth and the government’s ability to instill its own historical narratives and worldview through the public education system‎.”

People will always try to fight and stop what they fear..

By trying to suppress Christianity, you help it spread.
It CAN'T be stopped.

Nigeria that does not have such laws still do worse. Imagine a man discharged and acquitted for killing a woman preaching early in the morning and numerous undocumented happenings in Northern Nigeria.

A country in the UN security council is not a "world power?"

Guess China wants to adopt August Comte's three stages of development (Religious, Metaphysical and Scientific Stage). They have moves to a stage where they reason scientifically. Guess Nigeria has a long way to go because we are still in the first stage. We see things religiously.
