New Bishop of Hong Kong, a Kung He Is Not

Waiting to hear what Cardinal Zen has to say about this compromising prelate.

UCANews: Christians in mainland China were enraged by remarks on the cross-removal campaign that the new bishop of Hong Kong made in a press conference, just as news broke that a dozen church crosses had been removed or received notification for removal in central Jiangxi province recently.

Bishop Michael Yeung, in his first press conference as head of Hong Kong Diocese, also gave only qualified support to China’s repressed underground Catholic Church and admitted he would never stand up to Beijing.

When asked about the cross-removal campaign by China’s ruling Communist Party in Christian-heavy Zhejiang province between 2013 and 2016, Bishop Yeung said it was just a local issue at the very beginning but later involved many political elements which made it complicated.
