Apparently all the boot licking that Pope Francis has been doing to the Chinese Communist regime has produced the usual predictable results of appeasement:
Beijing, China, Oct 26, 2018 / 02:40 pm (CNA).- As part of an ongoing crackdown on religious practice in the country, Chinese authorities demolished two Catholic Marian shrines this week. The move comes just one month after the Chinese government signed an agreement with the Vatican regarding the appointment of bishops.
According to reports from AsiaNews, government authorities destroyed the Marian shrines of Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows in Dongergou (Shanxi), and Our Lady of Bliss, also known as Our Lady of the Mountain, in Anlong (Guizhou).
The shrines were pilgrimage sites for both the official Chinese Catholic Church and the “underground” Catholic Church in China.
Go here to read the rest. The Reds have the measure of Pope Francis and treat him with complete contempt. In that, if in nothing else, their attitude is completely understandable.
