Q: 'So you are a Christian, here are some crosses for you'. From CCP?

https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2017-08-11/hong-kong-activist-says-chinese-tortured-him-for-messi-photo

 

"Do you know Liu Xia?" they said. "Why are you causing trouble?"

 

He said they hit him in the stomach repeatedly and said, "You're a Christian, aren't you? So here's a cross for you." Then they used a stapler on his thighs to make Xs.

 

(edit:  update news, 21 'cross'  counted)

The CCP has conspired with the triad gangs in Hong Kong to do their dirty work for them. This has been going on for a long time and will continue.

It's funny how they think things through. A lot of them are secret Christians and Qigong members. They obviously struggle to read the Bible or discern whether their religious advisors are genuinely competent or not because if this weren't the case they would know that the love of money is the root of all evil and that one should not be a hypocrite. The cruellest thing of all for these idiots is that they have to spend their corporeal existence hiding the wealth they can't help using corruption and cruelty based methods to pathologically accumulate, but which they'll never be able to enjoy due to having to live in a dirty third world basket case while maintaining a pretense of being some kind of selfless public servant. The poor and oppressed always consoled themselves with the belief that in the afterlife those who oppressed them would suffer and they would ascend into the kingdom of heaven.

 

Let's assume the Christian religion is true. What the CCP do is set themselves up for eternal condemnation through greed, hypocrisy, cruelty and avarice which they can't enjoy on this mortal coil, in return for eternity in hell.

 

What would Pascal think of their attitude towards his wager?

 

Is this rationality with Chinese characteristics or are the people of China so brainwashed that they'll let a pack of braindead incompetent peasants who can't even figure out a corruption trade off hypothetical abstraction send their country into hell?

 

Do Chinese catholics get to skip purgatory in lieu of having lived in mainland China?

If I downvote, I always say so.

 

I downvoted the OP.

 

No mention of religion in the article at all.  If you actually click the link, it is nothing to do with anti Christian.

 

This is typical fake news. Post a link.., suggest what it is about, and hope that the recipient is too lazy to click the link and actually read it.

 

I usually go a step more when I see a link... what think tank.. who donated... ahh.

Europeans kicked the Jews and their religion off the continent and slowly they have been kicking the Christians and churches off the continent, I can't wait to see them try and kick the Muslims off the continent.

 

This is going to better than watching fake Wrestling on the WWE.

Its a bit like the fox news war on Christmas. Breitbart says some libtard professor says Christmas is banned because some Muslim says he/ she is offended. Breitbart reports, Fox re-reports. War on Christmas.

 

There is no original source in the end. It is news reporting on news.

 

There is nobody banning Christmas, Honest to God... nobody is trying to ban Christmas.

 

But the wingnuts say the left are trying to ban Christmas.

 

For fucks sake... take a step back from our ultra stupidity.

 

It is the right wing news that says the left wing wants to ban Christmas.

 

Think about that.

 

The right wing news says the left wing wants to ban Christmas.

 

Has the left wingers said that?

 

The left says,,, of course not.

 

The right wing news says.... they do.. They are Anti God.. They want to ban White Santa.

 

Fear them. Fear them. The left wing are commies. They want to socialise your healthcare. They want you to pay tax to create a social fund. They want to take your money, and make your wife available to all.

 

I am a commie. A Christian commie. And I struggle with my Christian faith at times because of the injustice I see. I cant reconcile what I see in the news compared to what I feel.

 

But I am lucky, in that I recognise that my faith is because of accident of birth. I happened to be born in a certain country.

 

If we can accept the concept of accident of birth, we can move on.

 

My religious guide is a Muslim. I am a Christian. We have a common ground. He fights to persuade me not to be an athiest, and we debate. I say he should be an athiest, he says no... we wechat to the early hours. I have no interest in Islam. And my mate is not trying to convert me, he just wants us to share the same God.

 

His battle is to keep me believing.

 

The evidence I present to him... how can I believe when these evil people want me to hate?

 

And more to the point. First world religious conversation is fine, but how do we convert that to a society where kids are not dying in hospital because nobody paid the oxygen bill.

 

While we debate... kids are dying. Shame on us.

A quick note about religion in China.

 

I agree with the ban.

 

People should work for now, for the common good. Not for their own spot in heaven. There is no heaven, you cant take it with you, you legacy is what you done.

My big debate with my Muslin friends is about the entitlemet.

 

I say, as a Christian, I am not entitled to be taken at the rapture. They say I am, if I accept Islam.

 

Fair enough, I argue back saying that a true Christian can never enter the Kingdom of heaven. Because we always need to forgive

 

He says I will get to heaven... I say I wont.... then an Indian guy popped up and said that we will go to  heaven. His God has lots of arms. WTF Thats a new ingredient..We just have to agree lots of arms are good.

 

But no problem. Fox says Jesus and Santa are white. Yup.

 

I can dismiss all, because of accident of birth.

How the fk did the kidnapping and torture of HK democracy and human rights activist turn into some argument about religion???

 

The guys religion was pretty much irrelevant (though he should be glad he's not Jewish!) They were going to staple him somehow.. they chose a cross (cos it's quick, easy, and represents his religion... end of story!)

 

The BIGGER issue is, as said above, that the HK triads may be doing Beijing's dirty work... tossers!
