I read an interesting article on CNN today. A famous Chinese blogger named Han Han who created magazine and tried to get it published, but had difficulty getting it through the government approval system. Article.

The writer mentions two interesting things that may be of interest to those wishing to see the gospel spread throughout china:

  1. There are three different sets of “licenses and permits” needed to get anything published and distributed in China. This would make it difficult to get religious materials distributed. Plenty of places to for the material to rejected.
  2. The blogger Han Han is stopping the production because he doesn’t see a chance for change until the current leadership changes in 2012. Change is always good.

With the letter from the “Elders” to the Chinese government a few weeks back and other loosening of restrictions I hope to see positive change in the coming years.
