Religious Books Burned

The Kunming religious books bonfire.

Totalitarian regimes have a thing for burning books, and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) joyfully burn dissident books and destroys other material not approved of by the regime.

In the festive climate of the 100th anniversary year of the CCP, it is recommended that this is done in public ceremonies to “educate the masses.”

To explain how these modern auto-da-fés should be organized, a “pilot” book-burning and DVD destroying ceremony was organized by the Ministry of Public Security in Kunming, Yunnan province, on July 16, in two locations.

The aim was to show how to publicly destroy illegal religious material, in this case coming mostly from Falun Gong and The Church of Almighty God.
