The 23-year-old  Joshua Wong wrote his concerns on Twitter. He said “Even in HK, the regime appears to have already exerted an influence over the Catholic diocese, directly or indirectly. Cardinal Tong issued instructions to all priests to “watch your language” in homilies & avoid making politically provocative comments.”

“The diocese has issued new instructions to Catholic schools to discourage students from participating in protests, published textbooks with guidance on how to “contribute to their nation” with a clear pro-Beijing slant and it banned an initiative by Catholic activists to mobilize a prayer campaign for Hong Kong. It is unclear whether the pressure for these measures came from Beijing or Rome, or out of fear in the diocese of the wrath of both.”

Many commented on Joshua’s tweet, “A deal with fascist China is a deal with the devil. To defend the religion and human rights, the Catholic Church please “lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil”, as the Lord’s Prayer says.”, “Wishful thinking. You only need to look at Pope Francis’ ease when surrounded by extreme left figures in Latin America and you can take your cue from there.”
