Although China has a massive amount of Atheists, Christianity is growing rapidly. There are estimated to be 70 million christians in in china, and growing. China is projected by some, to have the largest population of christians in the world by 2030. This poses a threat to the government's power, in their eyes. Churches are beginning to pop up all over china. In an attempt of suppression the government has started to tear down crosses and even entire churches. A lawyer named Zhang Kai who was defending the churches in court was detained by the Chinese government. He did not commit a crime but he is still being kept in secretive prison with no access to help. This is like the strict punishment of small crime in Legalism.
