China Toppling Crosses

China Toppling Crosses

In this photo taken July 15, 2014, Pastor Tao Chongyin, left speaks with church member Fan Liang'an in front of the Wuxi Christian Church with the words "Church of Jesus" in red in Longwan, Wenzhou in eastern China's Zhejiang province. Across Zhejiang province, which hugs China’s rocky southeastern coast, authorities have toppled, or threatened to topple, crosses at more than 130 churches. “I won’t let them take down the cross even if it means they would shoot me dead,” said Fan Liang’an, 73, whose grandfather helped build the church in 1924. Words in yellow on red banner reads "Protect the cross, at all cost." (AP Photo/Didi Tang)
