CHINA – Pope Warns Chinese Christians to Avoid ‘Proselytism’ to Please Xi Jinping

Breitbart | Elizabeth Yore | March 12, 2020

Each month, the Vatican releases a slickly produced Papal Prayer Intention video. In the March “Pope’s Video,” Francis addresses Catholicism in China.

Shockingly, but not unexpectedly, Francis remains mute about the millions of Christians and Catholics who are now enduring the worst religious persecutions and purges since Mao’s Cultural Revolution.

Each month, the Vatican releases a slickly produced Papal Prayer Intention video. In the March “Pope’s Video,” Francis addresses Catholicism in China.

Listen carefully to Francis’ disingenuous doublespeak in the video, as he avoids any mention of the brutal eradication of churches and Christian persecution on the ground in China. Instead, he cleverly and deceitfully ignores the grim reality and invokes “unity” as his focus for the Catholic Church in China.

Let’s parse and penetrate the cunning papal parlance in his March video for insight into Francis’ underlying political agenda with China:

  • “The Church wants Chinese Christians to be truly Christian and to be good citizens.”
    (Silently obey and submit as compliant citizens to Chinese dictator Xi Jinping and his Communist Chinese Party)
  • “They [Chinese Christians] should promote the Gospel, but without engaging in proselytism, and they need to achieve the unity of the divided Catholic Community.”
    (His goal for Chinese Catholics is Unity — Unity with the Communist-controlled Catholic Patriotic Church. And whatever you do, Chinese Catholics, don’t proselytize, scolds Francis for the umpteenth time. Francis, Xi and his Commie thugs abhor Catholics who proselytize)
  • “Let us pray together that the Church in China may persevere in its faithfulness to the Gospel and grow in Unity.”
    (Here’s Francis’ favorite code word again, unity. Memo to the Vatican: The Church in China can’t persevere in “its faithfulness to the Gospel” because the CCP is seizing and destroying Holy Bibles and replacing them with CCP Bibles glorifying Xi. Furthermore, it’s impossible to pray together in China when all your churches are shuttered and bulldozed, and your priests arrested, detained and harassed by the CCP.)

Incredibly, Xi’s brutal CCP religious goon squads are completely and shamelessly disregarded by Francis in his monthly prayer intention. Yet, tragically, Chinese Catholics have been thrown to the communist wolves by their Shepherd, a staggering betrayal of biblical proportions. Does Francis really believe if he ignores the destruction of the faith in China, Catholics won’t notice?

It’s like talking about springtime in Wuhan, while ignoring the raging, deadly coronavirus.
