Atrocities of Atheism: Episode II -- Attack of the Chinese

Introduced in Atrocities of Atheism: Episode I -- The Atheist Menace, I set forth the facts on how Atheism is the bloodiest religion in the world in the 20th Century. I did not go into detail of exact examples. That is why I will show some practicle examples of the horrors of militant Atheist governments. In this "Episode" we will look at how the Atheist Chinese government attacks all religions besides Atheism.

Chinese Atheist Government Atrocities:

Atheists of Communist China oppress the innocent East Turkestanese for their Muslim beliefs. A Japanese newspaper tells the tale of these oppressed Muslims: "Muslims are arrested on invalid grounds and sent off to labor camps, executed on groundless charges, and from time to time murdered en masse. They are not allowed to fast, and are prevented from receiving religious instruction. The method used to stop the Muslim population from growing is utterly inhuman: Women are forced to have abortions, and the children of those who have more than one child are taken away from them. ...The greatest assistance that can be given is to wage a struggle on the level of ideas to destroy the atheism that all that oppression stems from, and replace it with a just and proper morality. In that way, not just the Muslims of East Turkestan but all those who are wickedly killed all over the world, or are forced from their homelands just for saying, 'God is our Lord,' or can be helped" (from Chinese Torture in East Turkestan).

"Amalia Rubin from 'Students for a Free Tibet' revealed the atrocity the CCP laid on Tibetan people and Tibetan Buddhism. So far, one fifth of Tibet's population, 1.2 million Tibetans died under CCP's tyranny" (from ntdtv.com May 4th, 2005).

From 1959-66 the Atheistic government tightened it's strangle-hold over Tibetan Buddhism. "Monasteries were targeted as the backbone of Tibetan society. By 1966, before the Cultural Revolution began, 80% of central Tibet's 2,700 monasteries had been destroyed. Of 115,600 monks and nuns only 6,900 remained". "During the Cultural Revolution, all religious activity was banned; religious institutions were razed; texts and sacred objects destroyed; monks and nuns imprisoned and tortured; many were killed. By 1978, only eight monasteries were left standing, and 970 monks and nuns remained". The slaughter and persecution of these Tibetan Monks by the Atheistic government was horrific to take them from over 115 Thousand strong, down to less than one thousand.

Mao slaughtered Christians when he gained Atheistic control over China. This persecution of Christians in China continues today. Reporting from ntdtv.com May 4th, 2005 states: "Li narrated the stories of many Christian victims who were brutally persecuted by the CCP, as well as his own life experience in China's largest forced labor camp. ...[U]pon the call from God, he started to devote himself to collecting and publishing relevant documents pertaining to religious persecution of Christians in China, and founded the 'Investigative Organization of Religious Persecution in China'. Mr. Li published in New York and Europe six top-secret government documents, which revealed the systematic persecution of Christians by the Chinese government and a 'White Paper', compiled by him. His reports reveal that over 440 thousand Christians in China were sentenced to forced labor camp, and over ten thousand were persecuted to death". In 2002 the Atheist government reports on their Christian-related activities: "According to our investigation among House Church Christians, at this time there are 23,686 persons who have been arrested for religious activities, 4,014 persons sentenced to re-education, 129 persons killed, 208 persons handicapped, 997 persons placed under surveillance, 1,040 persons on the run, 20,000+ beaten, 10,000 fined (ranging from $.50 to $800,000)". "[P]rominent Beijing House church leader pastor Zhuohua Cai was tortured severely with electric cattle prods by his interrogators for his 'confessions' that he 'illegally managing a printing business and illegally profited 200,000RMB'.(US $25,000)".

China not only persecutes and murders official religions, but has waged war against religious movements or life philosophies, such as their inhumane treatment of members of Falun Gong. "Evidence has surfaced of over 100 torture methods being employed against Falun Gong practitioners in China's labour camps, detention centers, and mental hospitals. The goal is to eradicate Falun Gong, either by coercing its practitioners to renounce their belief, or by physically destroying them if they refuse. The tactics range from long-term sleep deprivation, being surrounded with loudspeakers demonizing their practice 24 hours a day, to being force-fed with human feces, or shocked and even raped with electric batons." There are many personal testamonies on Falun Gong websites. "I spoke the truth about Falun Gong, exercising my constitutional rights. I was unreasonably persecuted, and because of the severe abuse, I became disabled. I am condemning the Chinese government: they persecuted practitioners with savage mental and physical cruelty, and I am holding them responsible for the pain and suffering my family has had to endure because of the treatment I have received. I ask kind people around the world to join with me to help stop this persecution". "On October 21, 2000, Ms. Wang Lixuan and her eight-month-old son, Meng Hao, were arrested and detained at Tuanhe Labor Camp in Beijing, where they were tortured to death on November 7, 2000. When her family received the death notice and arrived in Beijing, they found the frozen corpses of Ms. Wang and her son. According to the coroner's examination, her neck and knucklebones were broken, her skull was sunken, and there was a needle stuck in her body".

I am an american who has been to China several times and would like to say that in the past opression of religion had occured but the china of today is very tolerent towards peopls beliefs, as long as your not handing out documents that are against the government little or no attention is paid to religios groups or people. and for torture we shouldnt throw stones ,for we only have to look at our own goverment and the practices of torture it uses on people that are detained.We as a nation cannot throw stones till we can stand proud in saying we dont misstreat people

Current day China is very tolerant to people's beliefs?

I don't believe Ms. Tan Yajiao and her husband, Mr. Liang Tielong would agree. Ms. Tan Yajiao, a pregnant woman, was beaten and tortured on September 18th, 2004, for her belief in Falun Gong. This forced a miscarriage. No one should be beaten and their baby killed for their beliefs. If you would like to see more of the horrors of China's oppression of Freedom of Religion please see what is happening to Falun Gong on http://falunhr.org/

As far as drawing some sort of moral equivalence to CIA Blacksites and persecution of religious beliefs... they are certainly not the same thing. I'm sure you and I can agree that torturing a pregnant mother and beating her unborn child to death in her womb for her religious beliefs is morally reprehensible. No one should be put through that because they want to be free to worship how they see fit.

Freedom of Religion is a fundamental inalienable human right. The United States of America does not torture people for their religious beliefs. These situations are not the same at all. That’s a false comparison and I believe you’re smart enough to recognize that also.

As a side note, I am not pro-torture.

I'm really amazed at the caustic and defensive reaction you get from people who read your blog. As if they think by saying that it doesn't happen that somehow ...it doesn't. What kind of self delusion is this? China has changed it's ways? HAH? I highly doubt that...they just can't get away with wholesale murder of hundreds of thousands "in the name of the sactity of the state" like they did under Chairman Mao. I've read numerous sorces that tell of Chines communist brutality and unlawful imprisonment of Christians as well as other faiths in China.

BTW, thanks for your web blog...it was an interesting find.
