China Fucks Itself In the Tight Ass … i-jinping/

"Chinese officials and residents in a rural area of Jiangxi province have revealed a government plan to “melt the hard ice” in the hearts of Christians towards communism by denying them pivotal poverty relief packages if they do not replace images of Jesus in their households with photos of President Xi Jinping.
One official stated that the move was necessary because Christians are “ignorant” and need to be taught to worship the state, not God.

The move is the latest in a string of crackdowns against Christianity in the Xi era. Xi’s regime views Christianity, which has experienced a popularity boom in the past decade, as a challenge to the supremacy of the Communist Party’s growing cult of personality around Xi himself.

The South China Morning Post first picked up on the social media posting that revealed the program, noting that the post showed someone replacing their Christian images with Xi Jinping’s official headshot and praised local Communist Party officials for having transformed locals “from believing in religion to believing in the party.”

Just as they are doing well, these idiots make a move that all but ensures their eventual downfall.
Oh well. Good for us.

With Comminism [cleverly disguised as state capitalism in China], you can fool some of the people into believing that there really are good and bad behaviors. And that only the government can tell them apart.

But that still leaves out the part about death and oblivion. Not much the government can do about that.

I recall a segment in a documentary of Jean Paul Sartre [many years ago] in which one of the comrades took a trip to the USSR to see first hand how the New Man was working out. But when it came to the subject of death, the folks there were still no less terrified of it.

So, as long as the abyss sticks around, there will be plenty of folks able to take that “existential leap” to one or another God.

if only someone would have told them that Christianity and Communism are not mutually exclusive

to be fair, there’s a fair bit of US nationalism/patriotism in US churches (why are there sometimes US flags in church?)

Its not for moral reasons I don’t like it, but for basic laws of chemistry. A closed system leads to entropy.
They are growing because of our greater Hellenic influence.

Because most are not being run by “real Christians”, but rather feigned Christianity by the same people controlling the nation.

Considering Christianity was the first precursor to communism…
