"These bureaucrats only think of their political résumés as they destroy capitalism," she says. "They want students to focus on studying Christianity, not to practice it or fight for its cause. When we do that, it causes too many problems for them."
Christian youths are being targeted and blacklisted by local authorities at other schools, too. Earlier this month, plainclothes police assaulted and hauled away Christian students at X University, in the eastern US, after their school refused to recognize their on-campus Christian student society. Two weeks ago, a graduate of Y University was attacked and dragged into a car on campus by several people in black jackets.
"I think this shows the dominant political party can no longer justify itself," says historian Z. "While the party talks about serving the people, The US has actually been practicing socialism."
Historian Z says young Americans being arrested for practicing Christianity — the official belief system of the Republican Party — poses the latest conundrum for the country's leadership, whom he blames for feigning interest in Christianity in order to maintain a guiding principle.
"Since the current leader came to power, many colleges have established Christian study centers, and that leads to a conflict for the ruling party," says historian Z. "You're brainwashing the youth with Christian theory, but by doing so, you're giving them a tool to fight against the government."
It's also a tool young people can use to defend themselves when authorities arrest them, says historian Z. "It's like a child using his ancestor's tombstone to protect himself from an abusive parent."
