Reds Harass Chinese
Protestant Churches
Gain Complete Control
This ix the second of two articles on the ruthless communist cam
paipn to seize control of the Pro',extant Churches in China. The vary
ing techniques employed by the Reds in their war against religion are
demonstrated in their efforts not only against Catholics, but Protest
ants as ii ell.
By Father Patrick O'Cormor, Society of St. Columban
Correspondent, N. C. W. C. News Service)
HONG KONG Chinese communists have been harass
ing Protestant hurches tor \ears Thev began their organiz
ed effort to nullify them as a religious'force and weld them
into a government tool earlv in 1950.
The first step was to promote an internal “struggle.’’ like
the Communists ‘class war'’ in
the politico-economic field
In May, 1950. the Communist
government encouraged a team ot
seven hinese Protestant leaders,
item Y MCA, YYVCA and National
Cfristi n Council, to visit Peking,
hurch property had been occupied
by Red organizations, Bibles had
been seized and ministers weie
restricted in their work. Some,
at least, of the team hoped to ob
Irin an assurance that the govern
ment would halt these abuses rnd
carry out its pledge of religious
freedom.
Instead, they heard one of their
number. Wu Yao-tsung of the
Y.M.C.A. saying: ‘‘The major
blame must be attached to the
Church itself.” Mr. Wu. now rec
ognized as the communists’ chief
Tiotestant collaborator, proposed

speech during a conference be

I he delegates had three session.'
V’Hh Chou En lai and reported th
they were “impressed with his
sympathy and understanding.” But
instead ol ottering to remedy their
grievances, the Piemiei accused
tlx church of ‘‘imperialism.’’
At this conference. th« govern
ment indicated that it would tol

there is no question about them,

nounced.
At that time, Protestant mis
sionaries in China numbered at
least one thousand. The govern
ment afterwards made conditions
so difficult that barely 20 remain
teday—and some of these are in
jail.
The seven delegates returned to
Shanghai and persuaded others to
join them in following the govern
ment’s orders. The first results
were two manifestos (July and Sep
(ember. 1950). signed by “leading
representatives of various Chris
tian churches.” according to the
communist New China News
agency.”

The communists tactics had sue
ceeded. Church leaders and mem
hers had become their tools in the
persecution of Christians.
Th* reef tactics succeeded fur
ther. The reform church, now
completely controlled, advocates
the Communist Party line in- all its
pronouncements. "I fervently love
communism and accept the teach-
ir»g» of the Communist Perty"
wrote Dr. Marcus Ch'en, Chinese
clergyman once sponsored by
American and Swedish mission
boards and now vice-chairman of
the reform committee, in a typical
T'ien Feng article.
But the resistance of some Prof
estants has been heroic. An Episco
palian evangelist in Honan, for
instance. was arrested at Christ
mas, 1951. on charges of opposing
the reform. According to ien
Feng, he was accused of saying that
the manifesto was not in keeping
with the Bible, and if the church
is under the leadership of the
people's government, it is not r.
church He also said, it was
charged: Now some church mem
hers are selling their church lor
a mess of pottage.”
He was brought before a public
accusation meeting, over which a
Chinese Episcopalian bishop pre
sided rl he accused apparently de
dined to confess that be had done
wrong and was marched back
through the snow to prison and
maybe death.
