China is Forcing Religious Organizations to Spread Communist Party Propaganda

Published

on

LifeSite News reported on new rules that China is imposing on religious groups that require them to “spread Communist Party principles.”

China’s government established new rules on December 30 that will give the Communist Party complete control over practically all aspects of religious life. The “administrative measures” include six chapters and 41 articles governing the “organization, functions, supervision and management of religious groups,” which span religious doctrine, annual and daily activities, and rallies.

The new rules will go into effect on February 1 and serve as the CCP’s increasing crackdown on religion. 1 million Muslim Uighurs have been interned in re-education camps, where some are being tortured. Authorities have defiled churches and stripped Christian ministers of their independence. Two million Christians and Buddhists have been detained. Further, Jewish communities have been harassed.

All of this is acting alongside the Chinese government’s policy “sinicization,” which works to impose Chinese culture and socialist policies on all of China. The Chinese government’s latest efforts to control religion are part of recent policies that were announced in 2017 to “reinterpret Christian teachings according to socialist doctrine.”

According to a Radio Free Asia report, the Chinese government forced churches in Hunan province to remove Ten Commandments displays and replace them with quotes of President Xi Jinping. Similarly, the Chinese government demanded that churches in Jiangxi province take down biblical paintings and crosses and replace them with portraits of President Xi. In some parts of the county, the government has banned all public displays of Christmas decorations. Additionally, party officials have been brainwashed into believing that the feast goes against CCP teachings.

In December, Christians who belonged to “house churches” not officially recognized by the Chinese government were ordered to not publicly celebrate Christmas. A Protestant pastor in Shandong said, “We are afraid to meet in public [because such meetings] have been designated illegal gatherings.” The pastor continued, “We can’t do Christmas this year. We can’t have any activities on Christmas.”

Under these new government dictates, all religious organizations will be mandated to obey and spread CCP values and speak positive of President Xi Jinping. There will be an expectation to “spread the principles and policies of the Chinese Communist Party” and indoctrinate all “religious staff and religious citizens to support the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party.”

Religious organizations must receive approval from Communist Party officials for all their decision-making.

Based on these rules, local religious affairs offices function as the “administrative bodies” for all religious organizations. These bodies control religious organizations through “guidance and supervision.”

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
