In 2015 China set to ordain independent bishops against the Holy See. Possible reactions of Catholics
The State Administration for Religious Affairs has launched plan’s that includes new ordinations without papal mandate. Beijing hardens towards the Holy See. Already now faithful refuse to participate in the ceremonies of the illicit bishops. A return to Maoist politics: the ideal of the Party is to destroy religions. The anti-corruption campaign of Xi Jinping has not yet touched the corruption of the Patriotic Association and the Ministry of Religious Affairs, who have stolen 13 billion euro.

Beijing pontificates against Vatican "threats"
The State Administration for Religious Affairs defends the integrity of the two excommunicated bishops (Leshan and Shantou) and mimics the Vatican saying that the Holy See’s gesture inflicts "wounds" and "sadness" among Catholics in China. It reaffirms the decision to go ahead with the ordinations without papal mandate, but the "resistance" to their dominance of the faithful, priests and bishops is growing. Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao should tackle the violation of the "harmonious society" and corruption of representatives responsible for religious politics.
