‘I Admire Their Courage,’ Priest Says of Shen Yun

March 22, 2018

“I enjoyed the performance. I don’t know much about Chinese culture, so that’s why I wanted to come and see it. They’re amazing dancers.”

Falun Gong [is] quietly persecuted in China, that I’m aware of, quietly persecuted. A lot of Catholic Churches too, very much so. … They weren’t exaggerating. I admire their courage because the communist government doesn’t like this kind of stuff. They don’t like anything that threatens their power over people’s hearts and souls. I come a little from that perspective.”
