Leading Chinese Dissident Calls Vatican Deal with Beijing a ‘Slap in the Face’

Catholic Culture: Chen Guangcheng, the blind Chinese human-rights activist who escaped to the US in 2012, has condemned the Vatican’s agreement with Beijing, allowing the Chinese regime to name new Catholic bishops, as “an affront to reasonable and freedom-loving people everywhere.” He said that deal was “a slap in the face to millions of Catholics and other faithful people in China who have suffered real persecution.” See here with link.
