China House Church Christian Beaten For Demanding Police to Account For the Burning of Bibles

Posted by Author on January 31, 2008

Press Releases, China Aid, Jan 30 2008-

Yunan- China Aid has learned that members of a House Church in Yunan Province were severely beaten by police officials on the morning of January 23. The incident occurred after two church members walked into the Xishan District’s Public Security Bureau office to request an account of the items, including Bibles, that were taken from the church and burned by police officials in early December of 2007. After ignoring the members’ request, officials proceeded to violently remove them from the office. One female church member 54-year-old Ms. Liang Guihua was thrown into a wall and rendered unconscious for more than 10 minutes. After leaving the police station the members went to a local hospital. One member returned to the station later that afternoon to request an account of the morning’s incident. The official on duty told the member that he would not testify to the incident even though he had witnessed the account first-hand.

The series of events originated on December 5, 2007 at 2:00pm, when policemen and members of the Bureau of Ethnic and Religious Affairs disrupted the house church meeting in Kunming, and detained several members. After searching the building, police seized several hundred Christian books including Bibles and note-pads, and proceeded to burn them outside of the residence. Police also destroyed the identification cards of three of the church members and instructed the landlord of the building to cease rental agreements with the congregation.

Chinese law requires officials to issue certificates documenting items taken during seizures. The church members have requested documentation of the items several times, but have been turned away by police officials every time.

Any Government which displays such blatant disregard for human rights and religious freedom demands to be held accountable. Government officials have now resorted to the burning of Bibles in order to hinder the growth of the House Church in China. We urge the international community to demand an accounting of these officials for the egregious acts committed against the house church members in Yunan Province……. (more details from China Aid)

  1. That`s absolutely disgusting! What a proper example for corruption, I hope that the government really feel now in a great threaten of holding this horrible attitude what concerns the human rights. Being quite far from the detailed problem as a realtor in Toronto I don`t have any right to criticize the official authorities but it seems to me that they are not able to act against these disorders.
