Brickbat: Not My Cross to Bear


Stocksnapper /

The Chinese has stepped up its efforts against Christians and Muslims and other religious believers, and according to one officer, they have even instituted a point system and quotas for arrests of religious believers. Each police station is evaluated quarterly. They get points for the number of believers arrested, their faith and for any leadership positions the people they arrest hold. They get the most points for members of the Falun Gong and the Church of the Almighty Gong. A station chief who doesn't meet his quota can be fired.
