Chinese Government Bans Children From Attending Church Services
In a bid to clamp down on excessive religious activities the Chinese government has issued new orders preventing children from being involved in church practices.
As reported by Dail Mail, children have been banned from attending sermons and church services in Chinese Provinces.
The new law is part of strides by the Chinese government to curb religious activities in the Communist country. This new order follows a previous one requiring that all crosses be removed from church buildings in the Zhejiang Province of the country.
Notices the government were spread to over hundred churches in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province informing them that minors should be barred from attending church activities. Hence youth Summer Camps have been outlawed in China.
The move is part of President Xi Jinping's motive to have a total control on Islam and Christianity in particular.
'China is in the midst of a religious revival and the current government seems concerned that religion could be a means through which foreign values may 'penetrate' into China and ultimately affect political stability.'
