What “Made in China” really means

From the Christian Post:

A member of an underground house church in China will recount her experience of torture, abuse and arbitrary imprisonment by Chinese police on Thursday, Feb. 10, at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.

Liu Xianzhi, a member of the South China Church, was arrested in 2001 and tortured by police into falsely testifying that the pastor of the South China Church, Gong Shengliang, raped her.

“I was taken to Zhongxiang Police Training Center,” 34-year-old Liu said according to the China Aid Association (CAA). “Six of seven male policemen started to question me in their dormitory. One asked me, ‘Do you know why we arrest you?’ I said, ‘Because I believe in Jesus.’ He slapped my face when he heard this. He said, ‘Do you know what age we are in today? And you still believe in Jesus?’ I didn’t answer him back.”

Even after escaping from China last month, Liu stated that her experience in prison continues to haunt her. "When I hear dogs barking, loud knocking on the door, the sound of police sirens, or I see men who are not wearing shirts (like my interrogators), I have an overwhelming sense of fear," Liu told the CAA.

According to the Association, Liu is one of 8,903 members of the South China Church who police have arrested for their religious beliefs, including Gong, who is serving a life sentence in prison based on multiple confessions obtained through torture.

On Thursday, the CAA reports that in addition to Liu’s testimony, Senator Sam Brownback and other Congressional leaders will express their grave concern over religious persecution in China.

In other words, the politicians will posture, give their best sad face, do a Bill Clinton “Ah feeyul yor payne” routine, then continue to give Communist China special trade concessions so the American voters can buy cheap, slave-labor produced crap.

Next time you buy something that says “Made in China” think about the Christian, falsely accused, tortured, then forced to work as a slave to make that for you. And enjoy. So what if you're supporting slavery, and financing the systematic persecution and torture of Christians, you saved 2 bucks!!
