Chinese Christians Arrested, Tortured By Police in Crackdown on Christianity

Published

on

According to a Tuesday report, about 100 Christians leaders were arrested over the weekend at a church in Chengdu, China over the weekend where three faced torture at the hands of Chinese police.

“Persecution watchdog group ChinaAid said that among the arrested at Early Rain Covenant Church were Pastor Wang Yi and his wife, Jiang Rong, as well as Guo Hai and his wife, who were forced to leave their child unnattended [sic] at home when they were taken into custody,” according to Christian Post. 

The raid represents a new level of persecution against Chinese Christians at the hands of the communist government. In September, several Christian Churches in Beijing were permanently shut down while bibles and crosses were burned, and the members were forced to sign paperwork renouncing their faith. Destroying churches is a way of demanding loyalty to he Communist Party, which wants no competition for its status as supreme ruler.

“Three brothers and sisters who have been released told us that they were [tortured] by police at the police station today and even stepped on their feet. One of the brothers was tied to his hands and feet at a late night and was detained all day, and the leg was tortured in multiple ways, and the body was injured with multiple injuries. These evils are heinous,” the letter said according to the report.

“A brother said the police didn’t give him a sip of rice in 24 hours, didn’t drink a sip, was deprived of rest time and was tied to the chair all night for only two or three hours,” the letter continued.

According to the report, the crackdown continued Tuesday when church members who had gone into hiding after Sunday were located and arrested.

In September, more than 350 Christian leaders in China signed a letter to the government claiming that regardless of the consequences, they will never relinquish their faith to please the state.

Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts

The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.

The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.

In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”

Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”

The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:

After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.

Toccalini concluded:

Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.

Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
