I hope the estimates are true that China's Christian population is growing and might exceed 100 million people. The ability to worship as you please is a wonderful American freedom. There was talk that Pope Benedict and Dubya were on good terms partly because of the long term view on the decline of Christianity in Europe, the fear of Eurabia, and the potential for Christianity in the 3rd world and China. I recall Dubya's comments about freedom of religion while in China for the Olympics, as he had an arm around some random Chinese guy saying things like "when freedom of religion spreads, freedom spreads". China has been and will continue to be fun to watch in the near future.
