My social media right now is blowing up with news about the destruction of churches in China,what makes it different is that they're destroying churches that were approved by the state in the first place. As someone who's been a long time China watcher this is very concerning. In addition, I have studied Christianity in China so I have thought about writing up a post about these latest incidents and why they're a troubling development.

BUT given the feelings that many people have around religion in these parts i'm not sure it'd be appreciated and I'm concerned that the core issue of religious freedom and persecution might get derailed.

So is this something that you'd be interested in learning more about? Or should I just save that post for religious folks who are directly affected by this persecution? Thanks for your feedback!

Have a cute gif!
