Chinese Megachurch Demolished; Congregants Badly Beaten

A megachurch in eastern China was recently demolished by reportedly 400 people in police suits, a human rights group reported Tuesday.

Before dawn last Sunday, the mob raided the “Good News Cloth Shoes Factory,” which also serves as the site for the FushanChurch. Men tore at the building’s foundation with shovels as bulldozers worked to level other buildings on the site, according to ChinaAid Association.

Meanwhile, dozens of church members sleeping at the construction site of the new church building were suddenly attacked with bricks and other objects. Several members were severely injured and were sent to the emergency room, and some members were unconscious. To read more, go here.
