The Red China government has become an absurd mix of communism and corporate fascism. It is not pure communism as thousands have become obscenely wealthy whilst others are still as poor as they have ever been. It is not pure communism but more a mix with some odd kind of Fascism where the State partners with corportions, there is no free market, there is no true religous freedom. The underground, persecuted Church in China, is the Catholic Church. The "legal" Church is schismatic as its bishops are appointed by the communist government.
Remember, this is a government that for three decades has forced abortion on its people to ensure its one child policy, now "mercifully" upgraded to two, after which, the others will be deprived of life.
And the Vicar of Christ wants these communist devils do choose the Church's Shepherds?
Bergoglio has lost his mind. He clearly does not like Catholics. Who is it that this man serves?
The authority on China is the great Cardinal Zen, Emeritus Bishop of Hong Kong.
Once again, he lays out the facts.
Will Bergoglio take away Cardinal Zen's red hat too?
Cardinal Zen: Pope Francis would ‘betray Christ’ by allowing Communist China to select bishops
HONG KONG, November 29, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — The highest ranking Chinese Catholic has stated that if Pope Francis allows Communist China to have a hand in the selection of the nation's Catholic bishops it would be “betraying Jesus Christ.”
“You cannot go into negotiations with the mentality ‘we want to sign an agreement at any cost,’ then you are surrendering yourself, you are betraying yourself, you are betraying Jesus Christ,” Cardinal Joseph Zen told The Guardian this week.
The 84-year-old former bishop of Hong Kong has firmly opposed a potential deal between the Vatican and the Chinese government that would add legitimacy to the state-run Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association. He says the move would alienate authentic Catholics who worship in the ‘underground Church’ from the one true Church headed by Christ and his representative, the Pope.
The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month that in such a deal, "Rome would commit to recognize as bishops only those clerics who first win nomination from the Patriotic Association’s bishops conference,” thus allowing the government, not the Church, to decide who is bishop.https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/pope-francis-would-betray-christ-in-allowing-communist-china-to-select-bish
