Chinese netizens have expressed outrage over a large Christian theme park allegedly sponsored by the local Changsha government, in central China’s Hunan province, claiming that the government should not encourage religious practices in a secular country that separates religion and politics. The park in Changsha Xingsha Ecological Park, which covers an area of 150,000 square metres, is the largest Christian theme park in central and south China, Global Times said citing a local TV station report.
A Christian Church and Bible institute were built in the park, Chen Zhi, president of the Christian Council of Hunan Province, was quoted as saying by the TV station. The church will begin operations in June 2017, said the report. Dai Rihong, the representative of the ecological park’s construction team, was quoted by Changsha Evening News as saying that the park was designed as a romantic wedding park for citizens to shoot wedding photos.
