A Chinese Dissident's Faith

Jim Hoagland had an excellent op-ed in the Washington Post on Sunday, called "A Chinese Dissident's Faith."  He notes, at the outset, that journalists are "suckers" for "political dissidents," but "skeptics about religious activists."  This is a problem, he suggests, in our "era in which religion has again become the driving engine of world politics."  Discussing the recent visit to Washington, D.C. of "Yu Jie, a Chinese writer who says his political opposition to the Beijing dictatorship is deeply rooted in Christian faith," Hoagland worries about the "journalistic habits of compartmentalizing the political and the pious."
