Bishop of St Albans asks Government about restrictions on Christian preachers in China

On 23rd June the Rt Revd Alan Smith, Bishop of St Albans received a written answer to a question  on religious freedom in China.

The Lord Bishop of St Albans: HL5718 To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of reports that priests in China have been forced to preach Chinese nationalism in return for the opening of religious spaces.

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: We are aware of these reports. We remain concerned by the restrictions placed on Christianity and other religions in China. The freedom to practice faith or belief without discrimination or violent opposition is a human right that all people should enjoy.
