Repeating the discriminatory terminology used by a persecutor to demonise its victims is tantamount to aiding the cause of that persecutor.
I refer to: “Banished faith finds home in Melbourne”, issue 24 CBD News.
Millions of innocent people have been persecuted for 17 years by the Chinese Communist Party simply for putting their faith first. Thousands are confirmed as having died in custody from torture, and exhaustive research by independent investigators suggests that up to a million may have been murdered to supply the lucrative Chinese organ transplant trade.
Your article quoted a Chinese scholar who claimed that other faiths were not persecuted so there must be a “problem” with Falun Gong.
In fact other faiths only escape persecution if they join a “patriotic association” meaning that they recognise the CCP as the supreme authority over their faith.
Catholics loyal to the Pope and “House Christians” are subject to persecution just like Falun Gong.
