China Relentless in Persecution of House Churches

A recent spate of attacks against Christians and house churches in China underlines the country’s relentless habit of persecuting Christians, even at the cost of its own reputation in the international community.
 
Christians Beaten in Hainan Province
 
On Aug. 14, a number of Christians in Lingao town, Lincheng county, Hainan Province, were violently beaten by urban management officers when they tried to prevent construction at a building site.
 
The Christians were looking forward to a church that was originally intended to be constructed at the site, but when local government secretly sold the site to developers, they were left floundering in the dark. As they protested the construction, the violence began and several children and elderly people were injured, with two women going into a coma as a result of the retaliation. When the Christians informed the police, they refused to address the attack.

I was reading about the Church Planting Movement last night.

Apparently, the whole movement is very ecumenical, and the number of church buildings being built around the world has increased exponentially over time, especially since the 1990's. If anything, they approach church planting/building like businessmen do, and is unscriptural. And it's not just the Emergent Church behind this. The SBC has been behind this too for a long time, as well as other groups like the Free Will Baptists(which Mike Hoggard is a member of).

Pt being that while I'm not exactly trying to let the China government off the hook, at the same time it wouldn't surprise me if more evil dark forces are behind what's going on in China here(other than the secular China government).
