via China Tears Down Crosses Again | CBN News

Authorities in China’s Henan province have reportedly torn down crosses atop several churches after claims that the structures themselves were built illegally.

“The parishes were illegally built without permission from the government,” an official told China’s state-run Global Times newspaper. “So we demolished their crosses.”

A representative with the Ethnic and Religious Bureau of Yichuan county, a small town south of Henan’s capital, said “two or three” crosses were pulled down this year.
