China Cracks Down on Christianity

What, you mean they weren’t cracking down already? Nope, apparently had reached a bit of a détente with the Christian community, at least compared to the complete intolerance of previous communist maniac dictators. But no more; Christianity is becoming popular enough to make the communist government tug at their collars. And when I say, “tug at their collars,” I mean, “beat More …

God Bless China

Speaking of one eighties, guess who’s on course to become the world’s biggest Christian nation? The same country who’s on course to become the world’s biggest everything else: It is said to be China’s biggest church and on Easter Sunday thousands of worshippers will flock to this Asian mega-temple to pledge their allegiance – not to the Communist Party, but More …

A Good Way to Start Your Monday

You saw the way people from West Berlin flooded into East Berlin to get their Zil automobiles and month-old potatoes, right?) In the Corner, Yuval Levin goes More …
