The Chinese government has lost face. How? By preventing Liu Xiaobo from accepting his Nobel Prize, using force to bring about the Patriotic Assembly of Catholic Representatives, fraying the unity of the Catholic community in communion with Rome, writes Cardinal Joseph Zen.
In his analysis of the latest developments in China, Cardinal Zen angrily rejects the claim of noted Catholic Sinologist, Fr. Jerooom Heyndrickx that the Church is moving toward unity in China.
This is perfect. The Godless, human-rights-abusing, Communist government of China wants Catholicism as its official religion.
