I know this is probably fairly common knowledge, but I hadn't really thought about it this way before. Someone (a Christian, who just returned from an extended stay in China) I met on a recent flight told me that the Chinese government resents Christianity because they associate it with capitalism. To them, Jesus is just another proponent of western thinking, the leader of an anti-communist regime.
