China brags of arresting Christians

From AsiaNews:

China’s courts were not idle in 2004. More than 800,000 people were arrested last year for endangering state security or for being involved in activities regarded as separatist, terrorist or extremist. In total, 811,102 people were held, an 8.3 per cent increase from 2003. The courts last year prosecuted 867,186 people in connection with those crimes....

Clergymen and laity from underground Christian communities are also arrested for “endangering public order”.

What gets me are these people who say we Christians shouldn't be involved in politics. These two stories show the beginnings of anti-Christian bigotry and the eventual results of anti-Christian bigotry. I didn't say the end of anti-Christian bigotry, because that has been repeatedly demonstrated in those cultures that round up Christians for slaughter.
