After the May 28 Zhaoyuan incident in Shandong that shocked both China and the rest of the world, when the CCP brought the case to trial, the suspects involved were clear in their confessions that they were not members of The Church of Almighty God. However, the CCP still insisted on referring to them as people belonging to The Church of Almighty God. What was their motive? What kind of plot was hidden behind this case?
Zheng Weiguo (Minister of a municipal United Front Work Department): The CCP suppresses and convictslike this, but you think those are all trumped-up and framed-up charges. Let me ask you then, how do you explain the May 28 Zhaoyuan case of Shandong that has shocked the country and the world? This case was heard in open court after all! After the occurrence of the Zhaoyuan case of Shandong, the government has stepped up its crackdown on house churches, even using the armed police forces to crack down on The Church of by conducting overwhelming carpet search-and-arrest of The Church of Almighty God members. Although people have raised numerous doubts about the Zhaoyuan case of Shandong, believing it was a false case fabricated by the CCP to generate public opinions to support its crackdown on The Church of Almighty God, the Chinese media have publicly reported the case regardless of whether the facts are true or false. This has generated some impacts in various countries in the world. No matter how you deny the Zhaoyuan case of Shandong, many people still believe the Communist Party. So I want to hear what you think of the Zhaoyuan case of Shandong.
Zheng Yi (A Christian): Dad, how long can the CCP fool the world with this Zhaoyuan case of Shandong that it has singlehandedly concocted? Can it save the CCP’s inevitable fate of demise? The Zhaoyuan case of Shandong had considerable impacts domestically and internationally at that time. It also deceived a lot of ignorant people. But can dark clouds permanently block the sun? Can a crow’s wings block the sun’s glory? Concealment and deception are impermanent. Lies are always lies, they will never become the truth. For so many years, the CCP has become increasingly notorious, corrupt and evil for its deceits and frauds. The CCP is infamous at home and abroad. Can frauds and deceits alone save the CCP? More and more people in the world as a whole see through the essence of the CCP. No one believes in it anymore. Since the CCP is a notorious atheist party and satanic evil group that is most sinister and resistant to God in the world, the CCP’s courts are Satan’s courts. Can there be any fairness and justice in the cases adjudicated by these courts? The CCP is a one-party dictatorship and one-party tyranny. There is no independent judiciary in China. CCP judges have no autonomy. They all take orders from the Chinese government and handle cases according to the government’s intentions. This is a well-established fact. The cases tried by the CCP courts are bound to be utterly absurd distortion of facts and inversion of black-and-white. During engaging in political struggles and political rule for so many years, the CCP has consistently relied on framing to generate public opinions. It is most adept in this art! When the Zhaoyuan case of Shandong was tried in the CCP court, the defendants clearly stated in court, “I never had contact with The Church of Almighty God.” “What the state cracks down on is the ‘Almighty God’ that Zhao Weishan believes in, not the ‘Almighty God’ that we believe in.” Even the defendants themselves did not admit that they belonged to The Church of Almighty God, and the Church did not know them. Why didn’t the CCP judge go by the facts? In the absence of evidence, why did the judge insist on attributing these suspects to The Church of Almighty God? Wasn’t this the plot of a frame-up? Wasn’t this falsification and deception? Now no one believes the reports of the CCP media and the CCP’s lies anymore. Dad, you have worked in the Communist system for so many years, you certainly see these things better than I do. Do you really believe that the Zhaoyuan Case of Shandong will help the CCP stay in power?
Zheng Rui (A Christian): Dad, having been a reporter for several years, I totally understand all these things. Every time before violently suppressing religious beliefs, democratic rights movements, ethnic protests, etc., the CCP fabricates a false case and wantonly creates public opinions to incite the mass, followed by a bloody crackdown. Take the June Fourth student movement, that started out advocating integrity against corruption, democracy and freedom. Then the CCP instructed some unidentified people to act as students and infiltrate the group to fight, smash, burn, overturn military vehicles, and create chaos. This branded the student movement as “counter-revolutionary,” intent on inciting riots, and gave the CCP the excuse they needed to repress the group. The CCP then launched a bloody crackdown on these students. At least a few thousand students were shot and rolled over by tanks. This was how the CCP staged the bloody Tiananmen Incident that chilled the Chinese people and shocked the world! It’s also how the CCP suppressed the mass protests in Tibet. The CCP government inserted people in the protesting crowd to deliberately commit arson, killing, robbery and looting. It then mobilized the army to massacre the protesting crowds under the pretext of quelling the Tibetan insurrection. These facts are enough to prove that starting by making up lies, distorting facts and framing, followed by violent suppression are the CCP’s usual means to eradicate dissension. The Zhaoyuan case in Shandong formed the basis for the public sentiment that allowed the CCP’s brutal suppression and persecution of The Church of Almighty God. It is another major crime of religious persecution by the CCP. Dad, you are an official within the CCP system, you should know better than us about the modus operandi of the CCP!
Mu Xinping (Zheng Weiguo’s wife): Oh, I’ve lived with the communist for so many years, I am crystal clear about what the CCP is. Despite the CCP officials’ grandiose appearance, what they do behind the scenes are all bad deeds and business deals. Needless to say about the Zhaoyuan case, there is no fairness in all the cases tried by the Communist courts. Transactions and bribery are behind all the cases. There are political motivations behind all the cases involving religions and ethnic minorities. Now that all the bad deeds of the CCP have been exposed by more and more people, I think the deceptive nature of the Zhaoyuan case will not be under wraps for long.
Zheng Weiguo: I did not expect you to be so discerning about the CCP’s intentions behind its actions! It appears that you guys have really grown up. But you are still callow. What happened after the commotions of the June Fourth Incident of 1989 caused by those angry youth? Hadn’t they all been quelled? Some of them were killed, wounded and jailed while others fled overseas. Who was able to fight against the CCP? Even if the Zhaoyuan case was a case of injustice and falsehood, then what? Too many unjust and false cases have been created by the CCP, many of which are known by the people. But who can solve the problem? Who can do anything about the CCP? Do you know what the CCP believes in? The CCP is a revolutionary party. What it believes in is mendacity and violence, that is, seizing power with violence! Going by the CCP’s logic, “A lie will become the truth if it’s repeated ten thousand times.” No matter how many people doubt its word, deny and disbelieve it, the CCP doesn’t care a whit, and it continues to lie and deceive just the same. As long as the immediate effects and its goals can be achieved, it doesn’t care about the costs! If people rebel against it and march in protest, it will use tanks and machine guns to solve it all. When necessary, it will use the atomic bombs and missiles to counter hostile forces. The CCP can resort to any means to maintain its rule. As soon as the Zhaoyuan case of Shandong was publicly announced, the CCP started massive deployment of armed police units to suppress and arrest Christians at all costs. Who could stop it? Who dared to resist? Even when foreigners were able to see through the CCP’s fraud, what could they do? The CCP has many ways to counter the condemnation of Western democratic forces. It uses money to settle everything. As the saying goes, “Who receives a gift sells his liberty.” Fewer and fewer countries are condemning the CCP now. Hostile forces to the CCP are afraid to sound off. No matter how you put it, the CCP is still able to uphold its rule. As long as the Communist Party holds on to power, you believers of God can never expect to be free! God’s appearanceand work in China will definitely be detested and banned by the CCP. Whether the CCP can achieve the goal of establishing an atheistic domain in China or not, it will never stop arresting and suppressing you!
