Vatican’s new Hong Kong bishop says religious freedom must stay

Hong Kong’s newly appointed Catholic bishop said he would need to tread carefully with Beijing as it cracks down on dissent. The Vatican announced Monday that Stephen Chow would be the city’s new bishop. ’Religious freedom is a basic right. We hope in our talks to the government to remind it that it doesn’t forget that,’ he said. He, however, refused to comment on China’s treatment of religions.

Authoritarian governments will inevitably turn on religion. The idea that the individual is accountable to a power higher than that of the state is counter productive. You cant force an entire group of people to obey immoral laws when they believe that God is watching.

I'm not sure will they forget that human right, but I'm 100% certain they will ignore it. Like many of them, for them that is just thing of the past.

The pathetic frailty of communism prevents debate, dissenting opinions and worst of all God.

Good luck with that! Chinese atheist. No freedoms. Hong Kong freedoms are being destroyed one at a time, just like the United States.

Good luck. There was once a pope who stood against the communism idealism.
