More on religious freedom and China
|I know that everybody has been entranced by the Olympics in Beijing. Along with the spectacular athletic games, we’ve also seen the topic of religious freedom brought to the forefront, particularly in light of the Chinese government’s tight reins (or outright ban) on anything that does not sanction. The Institute on Religion and Public Policy regularly sends out an e-newsletter “Face of Freedom, ” a weekly analysis of the status of religious freedom around the world. This newsletter also informs readers of sensitive events and brewing crises that affect fundamental rights across the globe.
I thought I’d share one item that caught my eye today.
The institute’s president Joseph K. Grieboski (pictured at right) recently appeared on public radio’s Interfaith Voices, a national program devoted to fostering interfaith dialogue and discussing current events through the perspective of different religious traditions.
He discussed religious freedom in China and tried to explain the Chinese government’s basis for denying citizens religious freedom.
