CHINA Guangzhou to encourage modern-day Judas with cash rewards for people to report on house churches

CHINA Guangzhou to encourage modern-day Judas with cash rewards for people to report on house churches | Religion in China | Scoop.it
The new measures are aimed primarily at Protestant house churches, but it is almost certain that they will be applied to Catholics and other religions and across the country. Clues are worth 3,000 yuan; informing on foreigners can earn up to 5,000 yuan; working with the police means up to 10,000 yuan. Teaching the catechism to one’s children at one’s home is now a dangerous proposition. Reports can be made by phone, in writing or in person.

Kristin Shi-Kupfers insight:
I agree to with the argument to oppose "Westcentrism" (西方中心主义), but I am afraid this is another (indirect) rejection of universial values. And what I am even more worried about is that more and more people in Europe might join in this "cultural relativism" argument. How believes in universal values these days? Talk about "Western values" is everywhere.

Hong Kong’s struggle is ours too. It’s a wake-up call to defend all basic human rights | Natalie Nougayrède | Opinion | The Guardian

Hong Kong’s struggle is ours too. It’s a wake-up call to defend all basic human rights | Natalie Nougayrède | Opinion | The Guardian | Religion in China | Scoop.it
Hong Kong’s activists stand for something vital for us all: the right of the individual not to be persecuted or extradited to a dictatorship, the right to assemble without incurring prison, the right to speak freely, to enjoy freedom of information. If we are truly internationalists or anti-nationalists, now is the time to embrace all those seemingly distant struggles as our own, and without distinction, without selective or variable indignation. Not because it suits our political agenda or our interests, but – yes, let’s say it – in human solidarity. Universalism is not a dirty word, it is beautiful.
