The big crackdown against Christians and their churches in China may be getting worse. Government workers are forcibly removing more and more crosses from church buildings.
This time, however, it’s not underground churches experiencing this latest wave of persecution. The latest crackdown is against government-sanctioned churches and their crosses.
Recently, another cross was forcibly removed in China’s Zhejiang province—this one by government workers at lower Dafei Catholic Church in Wenzhou. Parishioners sang Christian hymns as their church cross came down.
“(The) cross is in our hearts. The demolition is impossible to bear,” one parishioner named Chen lamented.
