Separation Of Church And State
Ol' BC thinks this is more what the founders had in mind. Not whether a ten commandments plaque was displayed on public ground.
While the Chinese constitution guarantees freedom of religion, Christians are
required to worship in churches run by state-controlled organizations: The
Three-Self Patriotic Movement for Protestants and the Chinese Patriotic Catholic
Association for Roman Catholics.
Freedom of religion? Eerily reminds one of the Church of England. I haven't read enough British history to see if government thugs knocked down churches and brutalized attendees, but then again, this is China.
Just an observation.
