Tracy Devitt Griggs thanks for joining us this week for family policy matters. You've likely heard about the persecution of the weaker people in China. This particular egregious human rights violation has broad worldwide condemnation, but at times in the past, both American businesses and our government act as if things in China really aren't that bad will as a Chinese citizen freedom leader and political prisoner Dr. Bob Fu has first-hand experience of an increasingly dangerous and inhumane government. Dr. Fu is a senior fellow for international religious freedom at the family research Council and president of China aid his experiences as a Chinese citizen includes serving as an underground house church pastor. Being a student leader. During the tragic tenement Square demonstrations in 1989, and ultimately being imprisoned for leading a house church Bob Fu were so grateful to have you joining us today on family policy matters. Thank you. Start by talking about your own life in China.

Was there ever a time that you remember seeing a shift toward clamping down on basic freedoms, or it hasn't always been this way. A lot of things have turned cold hearted claim the course of the auto group. Economies of Scotty Roy goose you know about one thing has turns for we workers will you have soon 40 years.

That is the persecution against the Christians.

Logos most Uighurs on basic McCombs party loans the war against all independent faith communities. We have soon for the first time, the coldest party has launched a war against the crawlspace weekly trends with thousands of blow crosses were forcefully: the home burned out, destroyed, demolished from the rooftop of the churches in the management of a new church buildings were also destroyed municipal tied these Christian children were forced to sign McCombs party prepared form to rebalance their face. Nobody under 18 years old is even allowed to enter into government toe sanctions church building.

Otherwise, we will face expulsion from their school. Parents are penalized on bowel thanks to the apples complicity to the Communist Party's demand, all the Bible apps were forcefully removed from all the e-commerce stores, including the Apple Store in China sold by March 1 Chinese noodle is going to be effective regulating the online content on religion. Basically, if you organize a prayer meeting. If you output to all your social media in China all Jesus you know all the gospel then you could be criminalized and sentenced to years imprisoned. This is going to happen right now. Sold yet, the international community. The International Olympics committee awarded the Chinese Combs party with no other Olympics that's going on right now. Tracy do alternative 2008 we were ward rewarded with the summer Olympics in Beijing so we share a lot about the weaker spent. It sounds like they're really ratcheting up persecution on Christians why do you suppose were not hearing as much about that in this country like to give this country. We also have a war against almost the Christian faith like I'm in, but on the same degree or skill not like the government to directly organize the persecution that is the major cultural war sites.

Unfortunately, all this the mainstream so-called liberal media on the show truly want to auto for political correctness to cover more of the persecution against the reboot of Muslim minorities. There is a dual site that's against to do so. Between 123 meeting this weaker because ox even included some Christians to argue the modern-day concentration camps in a private predominantly in West China called Cindy Owego autonomous region so that it is a very intriguing, almost like a unprecedented since World War II, you have another large-scale dual site crime against humanity and ethnic cleansing going on right now the Christian is also facing uphill battle. We have to go a Chinese-American pastor, my good friend from North Carolina pastor Don Cole received the seven year imprisonment for organizing private schools for 2000 children in China on firmer border area but he was sentenced is still serving the present pastor while he early ran covenant Church from time to met with President Bush back to 2006 in the White House when I invited him to the US, and he received nine years imprisonment or preaching a sermon based on John 316 calling for presidency to repent for his repressive policy and offering him the salvation of Jesus Christ from his pulpit defeat accepts so that's called subversion state power over lost the December we have looked to Christian lady received 12 years and 10 years respectively for setting up a offering box in their church gathering worship service being charged as a illegal business fault on the illegal business operation is a fault, 12 years and 10 years for setting up a offering box so that is going on right now.

You know, I didn't know that Apple had caved to the Chinese government and were removing all Bible apps that is crazy. What can we do here in the United States about data may not. That's an American owned company it is and you have the course of Coca-Cola, Nike, ABC innovator, sponsoring basis, so again with doodle side Olympics officer mentioned 36 Berlin Olympics, hosted by Hitler's Germany and I think it's really time or so to take some actions of children. We need to pray for those persecuted and prefer the persecutors to for their repentance for the strength of those who are you present like pastor John Paul pastor while in the many thousands of others in present and we also need to tell those companies. I'm in. Are you all be still willing to trade their conscience noodle with some distant business profit on the Apple tens of millions of Chinese all iPhone users amid the are removed from access to the Bible apps a move.

There's nothing there in the Apple Store in China. And, of course, of the global supply chains. Of course the minicourse of more dependent on China sought.

That's why think of America first policy is very appropriate. We should urge the politicians to seriously lead to salute two plates incentive is not the mandate of those of large corporations who received a lot of float taxpayers benefit snow from America.

Taxpayers to come back and the nautical tolling to the Communist Party's ideology on the evening become the enabler of those the persecution I mean you have Nike set up factories like in the middle of the doodle side, the province of soon, Joan, because Jim Jones called him his regarded as the best and yet the Combs party use those who argued the concentration camps to manufacture the products for exportation.

Do you think the Chinese people put up with this. I know most Americans, at least think that we would not stand for this kind of intense persecution from my perspective the Chinese people are not really totally surrendering because think about this. Millions of Chinese house church house churches. They were declared illegal. They can be smashed that the on the get arrested anytime. And yet, every week you have close to all, if not more than 100 million Chinese Christians continued to define a that Cullum's parties declaration in order why worshiping in their own homes in the park or in the caves, so they are still worshiping the creator and redeemer overlord.

While I would like to repeat what you just said because you said that in the face of all of this persecution of Christians there and people going to prison for up to a decade for just having a house church are making a statement and there were still 100 million Chinese Christians who continue to defy the government and worship every week. Wow, every week, yes, yes, but one observer said this constitute the largest suitable dissipative moment in history so the Combs party only believe you forced Newton gone and I speak of the are not able to cope with the brutal warfare that you know Lisa soft civil disobedience that the hundred million Chinese Christians are essentially exercising is to the base of the you know would risk their lives in exchange for worshiping the Lord to be there freedom of conscience. They are not lit up some of the do they do this to you know even though there on Sunday while the you have there family worship together house churches all shirt house churches dilute Nutri please will you lead them to alleviate that butanol yields the from the mother to children. We have documented that at China, a thought or a sewer website and yet they are continuing to worship on the are continue to sing in the middle of this. So we are about out of time that I there are so many other things that will, we can talk about and sure this is raised a lot of questions from our listeners.
