It seems they're equal opportunity then. Why isn't this in the news?
Listen to better news.
Senators Marco Rubio and Chris Smith have been making noise about China's repression of Christianity. So has Sen. Ted Cruz, but I think people can be forgiven for not paying much attention to Ted Cruz.
The New York Times reported on the repression of Christian groups back in December. That article noted that the Vatican has been pretty quiet about it due to ongoing negotiations over the Chinese government's role in the appointment of bishops there. (Full disclosure: the exiled bishop of Nanking presided over my Chinese Catholic in-laws' 1959 wedding in New York.)
[Edited to add: Then again, a lot of conservative Christian groups seem to be more focused on stamping out the freedoms of people in the US who are not conservative Christians than they are in protecting the freedoms of Christians elsewhere.]
