Inside China's 'thought transformation' camps

China used to deny that these camps exist – but now we're being given a tour. The message? These are schools, not prisons. The BBC has been given rare access to the vast system of highly secure facilities thought to be holding more than a million Muslims in China. bbc.in/2XvbRw1

Notice that, according to the BBC, it is Muslims, Uighurs, and Kazakhs and others that are being ‘re-educated.’ Christians are not mentioned. Possibly because the BBC is ok with re-educating Christians. Seems that Islam is a state approved religion in the UK. Christianity…not so much.

I don’t know as Christians are being detained on this scale for this long in these sorts of facilities yet, though persecution is certainly on the rise, and this may be coming. And, to be fair, the BBC did report on the persecution of Early Rain Covenant Church in December.

They’ve reported on Christian persecution before, but from what I understand the giant re-education camps targeted against Muslims in western China go far beyond anything Christians have faced (as has the degree of state violence in the region, once legitimized as “anti-terrorist” actions that now appear to in large part have been fabricated or exaggerated. It’s similar to the anti-Falun Gong actions of a decade ago, where the state has become very focused on one particular group.
