Blockade is Crumbling, cont'd

Marvin Olasky continues with another column dealing with China, this time focusing on the growing prevalence of house churches. Like websites, churches are supposed to register with the government. However, many do not, and growing numbers of Chinese are finding their way to worship in small groups meeting in homes and apartments.

Though he reports that his column withholds names and locations, he also indicates that one worship service he attended in an apartment was held with an open door. Ironically, the only closed door there was where bootleg DVDs were being made. (What is that saying about light and darkness? Hmm.)

All very encouraging, positive stuff. We need to develop an index of leading indicators for freedom and opportunity!
