1515 HaveThingsToSay >illegally occupying farmland Is a fairly serious charge, if a farm land, without permission, even used for burial, the bodies would be exhumed and moved elsewhere. With a population of 1.4 billion, and ever expanding city crawl, farm land in China has become a premium. Misuse of valuable farm land is a serious concern for the country. The Chinese paramilitary police is called, literally, "Armed Police". It is their version of SWAT. Let that name sink in a bit, they are called "Armed" police in contrast to their normal police. Also all police organization, in any country, is "paramilitary". It is not without reason and it is very likely, demolition of the building is done without an extensive trial. But judging by the charge, the location, and the Church were in odds with local authorities for a long time. The reaction is not as ominous as the article's wording suggest. A more fair and balanced title should be," Church building violates farmland protection act, demolished by authorities in China". Can I have my 5 cents now?

126 mybankpin >"A Christian offered his farmland to a local Christian association and they secretly built a church using the cover of building a warehouse," a government department official was quoted as saying. So a warehouse somehow became a mega church, and when the authorities crack down on this illegal structure, it's persecution.
