Dear President Hu:
You will be meeting very soon with United States President George W.
Bush, who has promised that he will pressure China about its denial of religious
Please take the opportunity to ask Mr. Bush about the Gerry Armstrong
case in California in the U.S. My case shows that people can be, and are
being, jailed and financially crushed in the U.S. just for mentioning a
federally favored “religion.”
Have some scholars start here, and work back through time: http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50grand/legal/a7/appeal/ord-deny-pet-rehearing-2005-11-14.html
The kind of “religious freedom” that the U.S. seeks to impose
in China and around the world is not the kind of religious freedom any nation
should seek to impose on any other nation, and should not allow in its own
I doubt that even in China a person can be assessed fifty thousand dollars
per utterance (404,158.33 CNY) and jailed just for talking about a “religion”
and his “religious experiences” in that “religion.”
This is not for publishing whole Holy Bibles, but for saying even one word
about a “religion.”
People in the U.S. are being terrorized by religious cults into signing
“contracts” that contain just such conditions. And worse, these
“contracts” allow the fantastically wealthy “religious
corporations” and all of their agents to say the most horrible things
about the people forced to sign these documents -- to anyone, friends, family,
government officials, the media, or even priests -- and the victims of these
attacks can say nothing in their own defense or in the defense of their
class or loved ones. If these victims of U.S.-based religious persecution
speak up to defend themselves, or their friends and families and their lives
and reputations, the victims are assessed $50,000 per utterance and ordered
I know it must be astonishing to anyone in China, and certainly a well
educated person like yourself, that in America people can be so terrorized,
imprisoned and ruined by a “church” or a “religion.”
But it is actually encouraged and made a tax-exempt “religious activity”
in America that is promoted by the U.S. Federal Government as “religious
freedom.” Just for writing this letter to you, to alert you to this
danger, and to ask you to do something about it, a “church”
in America would have me pay $50,000 and go to jail.
These religious persecution contracts and their judicial enforcement
are not well known about even in America because they are a relatively new
tool of religious suppression invented by clever lawyers hired by the federally
favored “religious corporations” to invent such diabolically
Also, of course, the religious persecution contracts are kept secret
and the religious persecution is done largely in secret, and in fact these
“religious corporations” often operate as intelligence organizations.
The number of good people being persecuted with monetary crucifixion and
imprisonment at the direction of these “religions” is not known,
because these people, and many others, have been terrified into not talking
about it. If they talk about it they can be bankrupted and thrown in jail.
It is known that this religious persecution by contract exists across
the U.S. and definitely beyond its borders. The best-documented example
of this new religious persecution that the U.S. seeks to impose on the world
is the Scientology v. Armstrong case. Over twenty-four years of religious
persecution by contract, U.S. religious agents followed me all the way to
Canada and then France, Germany and Russia to persecute me for discussing
my experiences being religiously persecuted. Scientology is one of the “new
religions” that the U.S. promotes, that in its core and operation
is an intelligence organization with all kinds of covers and covert activities.
Please have some scholars and your people in Canada and the U.S. look
into this extraordinary case that lays out the clear and willful intention
of “religion” in the U.S. to suppress and destroy rational thought,
conscience, and conscious expression. I was forced to sign three of these
religious persecution contracts, each one more draconian. The expressions
being suppressed and punished are simple words just like these, which hurt
no person and are no threat to public order or safety, and are all about
The U.S. Courts, Congress, the Administration, and President Bush personally,
are well informed about the religious persecution being perpetrated by religious
corporations based in the U.S. I have personally kept President Bush apprised
of the religious persecution being perpetrated on me, and I will do what
I can to get a copy of this letter into his hands. The only reason the U.S.
permits this U.S.-based religious persecution to persist is that the U.S.
wants this religious persecution to be persist.
Western media are warning us at the moment that the U.S.’s Iraq
War is eclipsing all other issues, and that “religion freedom”
is a diversion. It should be remembered, however, that the war is being
fought to protect American freedoms. One of America’s most prized
freedoms is the freedom for U.S.-based “religions” or “religious
corporations” to destroy these freedoms and to persecute and obliterate
individuals as a “religious right.” The Iraq War is actually
a diversion. Very few of America’s military personnel know that they
are fighting and dying for the freedom to crush freedom, religious or otherwise.
It is clear that what the U.S. seeks to impose on China, and the rest
of the world, as “religious freedom” is a form of stupidity.
The U.S., and particularly Mr. Bush, assume this right to pressure other
nations to accept this stupidity by pretending to be so stupid they cannot
see that wisdom is a better idea. Please do not let Mr. Bush and America
get away with any more pretended stupidity. Ask them about the Armstrong
case, about religious persecution by contract, about their support for the
religious persecutors, and about their participation in the persecution
of the religious victims.
Mr. President, I believe I understand why you might have a dim view of
religion, and an especially dim view of the religious corporations like
Scientology coming out of the U.S. The answer to these stupidities is wisdom.
True religion is wisdom. False religion is stupidity. America right now
is extremely stupid about religion. Be wise yourself and hold President
Bush to a higher standard, for all our sakes.
