China: Crosses torn down and Jesus replaced with communist figures

CHINA has ordered Christians to destroy the crosses on their churches and take down images of Jesus as the communist regime continues its crackdown on religion.

Churches in Anhui, Jiangsu, Hebei and Zhejiang have been forcefully ordered to take down religious symbols by authorities who continue to clampdown on religious activity, according to Radio Free Asia. While churches in Shanxi have been ordered to take their religious symbols down and replace them with images of communist leaders.

The news comes after China Aid revealed more than 100 government officials turned up Aodi Christian Church and Yinchang Christian Church in the early hours of the morning.

Christians in Wenzhou said they arrived with cranes, broke the church locks, and entered the churches.

They were also accused of destroying church property.

Church members say they tried to stop the officials, but several security guards beat them, resulting in several injuries.

China Aid claims a man in his eighties was shoved to the ground.

Crosses at both churches were removed.
