(London Express) Chinese authorities have ordered a church to remove the first of the 10 commandments, as Xi Jinping’s communist regime continues to crack down on religion.
According to members of the government-approved Three Self church, on November 1, around 30 officials from the central “patrol inspection team” for religious supervision arrived at the church in Dongcun village in Henan Province’s Luoning county to conduct an inspection. An official rigorously searched the church before pointing to the first of the Ten Commandments displayed on the wall. According to Bitter Winter Magazine, an online news organisation which specialises in civil liberties in China, the official said: “This must be removed.”
The government officials then immediately wiped off the Commandment.
