Chinese authorities have demolished a well-known Christian megachurch, inflaming long-standing tensions between religious groups and the Communist Party.

Witnesses and overseas activists said the paramilitary People's Armed Police used dynamite and excavators to destroy the Golden Lampstand Church, which has a congregation of more than 50,000, in the city of Linfen in Shaanxi province.

ChinaAid, a US-based Christian advocacy group, said local authorities planted explosives in an underground worship hall to demolish the building following, constructed with nearly $2.6m (£1.9m) in contributions from local worshippers in one of China's poorest regions.

The church had faced "repeated persecution" by the Chinese government, said ChinaAid. Hundreds of police and hired thugs smashed the building and seized Bibles in an earlier crackdown in 2009 that ended with the arrest of church leaders.

Those church leaders were given prison sentences of up to seven years for charges of illegally occupying farmland and disturbing traffic order, according to state media.

There are an estimated 60 million Christians in China, many of whom worship in independent congregations like the Golden Lampstand. Millions of Christians, Buddhists and Muslims also worship in state-sanctioned assemblies.

But the surging popularity of non-state-approved churches has raised the ire of authorities, wary of any threats to the officially atheist Communist Party's rigid political and social control.

....for illegally occupying a farmland and disturbing traffic flow....

That's what a sane and responsible govt does. Now the ownward christian soldiers on Nigeria who lack the very basic of human values will descend here to condemn China.
Kudos to effective governance. In Nigeria here when churches block the road and you condemn they'll ask whether you didn't know they're having a program.
Their loudspeakers disturb the neighbourhoods and you speak out and they say ooooh that's the antichrist.

Any idea to rid the world of religion is a good idea, as long as they're being fair to all religions. Religion is one thing we totally don't need.

The way to God is spiritually, not religion.
