“China’s constitution is clear,” said Chen Zongrong, an official for the government’s religious-affairs office. “Foreign forces cannot be allowed to interfere with China’s religious environment and religious affairs.” The Beijing regime recently announced that all religious affairs would come under the control of the Communist Party.
