More troubling blows to religious-freedom in China

The pastor in China who opposed the regime's removal of crosses from church-buildings is being sent to prison for 14 years.  (More here.)  Kudos to the New York Times and some other media outlets that often disappoint me -- they've been on top of this big-picture story, I think.   And yet . . . "American universities [continue to] open up shop in China."  No institution that claims to be committed to academic freedom and the pursuit of truth can afford to become entangled with a political authority that jails pastors for opposing the removal of crosses.
