Aid’s Top 10 Persecution Cases in China of 2014
In 2014, Chinese authorities in charge of religious affairs persecuted the entire Christian population in China in order to “sinicize Christianity.” In addition to house churches, which typically face persecution, small government-sanctioned churches were also targeted, experiencing cross removals and building demolitions. The persecution against Christianity seemed to aim to eliminate the social influence of the Christian community and to correct and transform Christianity to fit the “Chinese Dream.” During 2014, cases in which the Chinese Communist regime persecuted Christians came out in rapid succession with each case worse than
the previous one. Circumstances surrounding the trampling of Christians’ religious freedom in these cases were vicious in most instances and have caused a very bad impact. These cases have drawn extensive attention and condemnation from the international community.
