Image source:  In the face of an official campaign to curb the rapid spread of Christianity, thousands of Chinese Christians have camped in and around a church in the eastern part of the country in order to prevent its demolition, the Washington Post reported.  Local officials in the province of Zhejiang embarked on a campaign in February to demolish any church buildings that violated local regulations, according to a government Web site, given their concern that Christianity was growing too fast and in an “unsustainable” manner. When leaders of Sanjiang Church in Wenzhou refused to remove small spires on the rooftop, officials threatened to tear down the entire building, according to Zheng Leguo, an evangelical church leader from Wenzhou. A local Christian leader who requested anonymity for fear of retaliation told the Post he’s been staying in the church since Thursday with about 3,000 other Christians — some of whom are from neighboring churches and are helping to guard the building.
