As Breitbart News reported in 2017, Chinese officials threatened to deny Christians poverty relief packages unless they substituted images of Jesus in their homes with photos of Xi. The measure, carried out in the Jiangxi province, was part of a government plan to "melt the hard ice" in the hearts of Christians towards communism, authorities said.

One official declared that the move was necessary because Christians are "ignorant" and need to be taught to worship the state, not God.

This is the same country who many Retorters are rooting for to win the trade war over Trump.

The trade war is China vs Trump.

I kind of agree with them. 10 commandments don't mean much to most xtianss anyway... except something for them to feel guilty about. The only ones they seem consistant in are the first 3 which are the easiest becaue you don't have to do much have little effect on how they treat other humans. The rest you have to have some skin in the game which is a real ----- killer for some.

I remember back in 2001 was when I first heard idiots claiming that soon as an atheist was head of state the countries got dramatically better.

Such putrid fools will be the death of humanity.

I would be very surprised if we haven't had several atheists in the oval office in this nation's history. They just can't admit it, or they'd never be elected. Just another little campaign lie.

In case you haven't noticed Trump is a truly despicable person and only someone who's being obtuse wouldn't be able to notice this.
