The authoritarian police state cannot possibly tolerate a faith [Xtianity] that preaches dissent from the regime’s one-party rule,” she said. “As the new President Xi Jinping re-asserted the Communist Party’s absolute rule and is reining in any potential threat, religious persecution of Christians and others (Tibetan Buddhism, Muslims in Xinjiang, Falun Gong, etc.) is likely to escalate.”
This is not really new news, but I wonder at the qualified 'Tibetan Buddhism'? Is Chinese Buddhism thus free to practice and preach? Or is it so closely watched and/or infiltrated that Chinese Buddhism in China is just a sham?
