    One is well aware of Pope John Paul II's work in the defeat of Communism. When 'Solidarity' was underground in the 1980s, it was in churches, in the basement of churches that you could buy or get underground newspapers, have free discussions, meet artists who were not approved by the government and then came the deluge!

    Christianity is the fastest growing religion in China. China is worried since it is a 'foreign religion' and can subvert the Han Culturalism that has held China in good stead so far. To ensure that foreign influence is minimised, the CCP controls the Church and its religious activities are organised to 'serve' the CCP's policies.

    Yet, in China, clandestine 'house' Churches are mushrooming that are beyond the CCP control.

    According to the CIA World Factbook, Taiwanese religious statistics are as follows:

    Would anyone care to speculate why Taiwan, free for decades, and as some might have it, the Asian country most reflective of US/Western values, has not experienced a 'deluge' of conversions to Christianity?

    Or is it in short, a well organised plan to subvert China?

    There is no doubt that from the US' point of view, it is essential for the West, the US in particular, to encourage the external dynamics (naval diplomacy against China and North Korea by steaming in USS George Washington and war games i.e. naval exercises with Philippines in the wake of Chinese threats in the South China Seas) with the internal dynamics (accelerating capitalism to increase the 'have' and 'have not' and the 'rural' and 'urban' divides and ensuring the rapid growth of Christianity) to ensure a 'healthy' balance where China prospers but is not in a position to 'threaten'.

    None there to comment or give an opinion?

    Take a look at Taiwan and then China.

    Why is Christianity going gung ho in numbers there and not so in Taiwan?

    And there is a curb in China but not so in Taiwan.

    Any idea/ speculation/ gossip/ rumour that you can give?

    Observe what the Pope did to Communism.

    Observe what the Baptists did in Nagaland.

    The Lutherans in Bodo areas.

    The Catholics in Jharkhand.

    Any similarities?

    Or what the Islamists are doing in Kashmir and ruining Sufism that was the backbone of Kashmir?

    And what the Hindu backlash is doing in India.

    Tells a tale.
