"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

(Christian Post) "According to a reliable source from a high level government agency, the release was ordered from the Chinese central government because of increasing international pressure on this case," a statement from the China Aid Association (CAA) on Friday read. The arrest of the 50 Protestant leaders was first reported by the CAA on Oct. 20.
These leaders were arrested while meeting to discuss how they might aid the poor and orphaned in China, a major problem in Communistic China if you are a girl or a sick baby boy. If it were not for action taken by U.S. Congressman Chris Smith, those believers may have remained in custody to this day.
(Christian Post) "The relatively quick release of these church leaders is certainly a welcomed step in the right direction," said CAA President Bob Fu said in the released statement. "The arbitrarily arrest of innocent citizens and illegal detention are contradictory to international human rights norms. Those officials who abuse its power by beating innocent people should be held accountable."
China is becoming increasingly hostile towards believers, something that Voice of the Martyr's has documented well via email subscriptions. President Bush is reportably scheduled to visit Beijing on November 19th, and hopefully his visit as well as the future 2008 Olympics will pacify China's wrath against harmless believers.

Religion and ideologies have only lead to bloodshed time and again. In the long run China is better off being communist.
