Shout Out – Jessica Linton

This week I read an article about a Chinese man, Huang Chuanchan,  who was killed in prison trying to protect a bible. He was a convert who was serving a life sentence for murder (although his friend insists that the charged were fabricated). Although the study of the bible in prison was strictly prohibited, Huang and his friend listened to outlawed radio stations and taught fellow inmates about Christianity. Huang died after being beaten severely beaten by prison guards, although the official autopsy was changed from that to “sudden death following heart attack.” I’m not surprised that the government has power over official autopsy reports, but that it was done so blatantly is a risky move, even for the government. This is again another example of the government’s intolerance of religion as a whole.
