China Bans Religion For 90 Million People

The Party has by and large exhibited a cautious tolerance towards religion but it prohibits its almost 90 million Party members from holding religious beliefs, says the Council on Foreign relations, a United States think tank.

Wang asserted that foreign religions, such as Christianity and Islam, have been used to further political beliefs contrary to those of China's ruling communist party, and therefore must be regulated and made to conform, for "national security and social stability".

The Chinese government has launched a new campaign against religion, warning the estimated 85 million Communist Party members they will be punished if they continue to practise their beliefs. "Party members should be firm Marxist atheists, obey party rules and stick to the party's faith. they are not allowed to seek value and belief in religion", Wang Zuoan, director of the State Administration for Religious Affairs wrote in an article released in the Qiushi Journal on Saturday, the flagship magazine of the CPC Central Committee.

The Chinese Communist Party has mostly shown a cautious tolerance towards religion but has also frequently demanded that members belonging to religious organisations be expelled from the party. "We should guide religious groups and individuals with socialist core values and excellent traditional Chinese culture and support religious groups to dig into their doctrines to find parts that are beneficial to social harmony and development", Wang added. While China's constitution guarantees some degree of religious freedom, it makes no guarantee that a person may freely practice their faith, according to the Council on Foreign Relations. Wang said "foreign forces" are using religion "to infiltrate China" which is a threat to the country's security.

The direction is meant to maintain party unity.
