in reply to All I want for Christmas is:
When it is commonly condamed to marry religion with politics in U.S. and so called western countries, those countries have been long posing a double standard towards the world, and religion is always the maid for politics.
The main reason that the previous pop was highly praised was that he helped to remove the communism system from the eastern european countries. When you look at those countries today, they are all in a shitty situation. And Romanian and Poland were even used as U.S. base to unlawfully capture and torture people.
That made lots of Chinese people believe that it is right for the nation to ban any religious organization that does not distinguish politics and religion. The power and strength today's Red China is showing clearly tells world that the nation and its people has been doing the right thing.
I was a christian when I was in China, so anyone calls for freedom of religion in China is just a jerk. But we are determined not to let any evil to weaken our nation through any conspiracy.
