China, Christians, Christmas,
Even Baby in the Manger made in ChinaBy Judi McLeod

Will there be a nativity scene underlining the true meaning of Christmas at your house this year?
In politically correct times, Christmas is further diminished each year. Even the age-old greeting of "Merry Christmas" is replaced by department store staff with "Season's greetings."
Displaying a nativity scene is some folk's way of putting Christ back in Christmas.
This time of year the Baby in the Manger can be seen in front of churches of many denominations in small town North America.
"But did you know that the majority of nativity scene sets, and yes, even especially the ones with popular names with Italian design, are now being made in China?" (Classic Nativity Scenes).
"While we empathize and pray for the plight of the people in countries like China by purchasing products made in these countries, you are supporting governments zealously advancing ideologies lethal to freedom and faith (religious persecution is but one of their many transgressions)."
"China is one of many oppressive countries who routinely, as a matter of state policy, arrest, torture and murder Catholic priests, Christian missionaries and those of any non-government approved "State Church". China is also guilty of the frequent destruction of churches and places of worship. "
In a world that seems to be set upside down by politically correct forces, it can be confusing for the average person.
Incredibly, former U.S. generals like Brent Scowcroft and Alexander Haig work for the country whose symbol is the dragon. Those sworn to defend America help an enemy that publicly states it will lose 500 million to kill 300 million Americans.
Some of America's most prominent public figures now work for the Peoples Republic of China.
Henry Kissinger, who was given refuge in the U.S., betrays it by working as a lobbyist for China. Kissinger's latest Chinese assignment was on the failed Unocal bid. Kissinger, who could not serve on the 9/11 Commission because of a "conflict of interest", does business with the Chinese communist leadership.
While Communist China utilizes what amounts to slave or coerced labor, President Hu Jintao was accorded a red carpet state visit to Canada by Prime Minister Paul Martin this fall.
Make this Christmas count for Christ.
"Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty." (Wendell Phillips (1811-1884).
