This Wuhan Flu has made many Western nations such as Australia become more and more like CCP China. What’s next?
‘Qiqihar, the second largest city in China’s Heilongjiang province, joined an increasing number of cities, districts and county governments to offer cash rewards to anyone who reports to the authorities on “illegal religious activities”.
Whistle-blowers could pocket between 500 yuan (£56, $77, €65) and 1,000 yuan (£112, $154, €132) for informing on private house gatherings, preaching, the distribution of printed religious works, audio-visual products outside churches, unqualified religious personnel and illicit foreign infiltration.
Residents of Qiqihar are being told the new rewards scheme will ensure a “harmonious” religious landscape.
The measures aim to “strengthen the control of illegal religious activities in the district and prevent any Covid-19 cluster resulting from religious gatherings”, according to a statement from the Meilisi Daur District United Front Work Department of Qiqihar.’https://mychristiandaily.com/cash-rewards-offered-by-chinese-cities-for-reporting-illegal-religious-activities/
‘NSW Police issued $35,000 in COVID-19 fines after around 60 people were on Sunday sprung gathering at a Western Sydney church, where the pastor declared “the lockdown is over”.
Officers were called to the Christ Embassy Church on Fourth Avenue in Blacktown about 7:30pm, after multiple complaints were made to Crime Stoppers.
In a video of a service held earlier in the day posted to social media, Pastor Marvin Osaghae can be heard urging parishioners to join him in prayer for the NSW government.
Sixty people were inside, including adults and children, police said.
Thirty attendees received $1,000 Penalty Infringement Notices (PINS) while the organisation was issued a $5,000 fine.
Christ Embassy Sydney sits in the Blacktown local government area (LGA) which is one of 12 hotspot LGAs under tighter restrictions.
Police said there was no QR code present at the entry to the building and those in attendance were from various LGAs including Canterbury-Bankstown, Fairfield and Liverpool, which are also areas of concern.’https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-08-23/blacktown-churchgoers-fined-for-large-gathering-covid-breach/100398402
