I didn't list that because as far as I know the organ harvesting is limited to prisoners who receive capital punishment. I consider that a different category from separatists. Of course anything can still happen to the leaders of the HK protest movement. Maybe one day we'll hear some horrific stories regarding the treatment of HK political prisoners, but until that happens I won't assume the HK protesters will get the Falun Gong treatment.
OK but you seem to be glossing over the fact the Falun Gong prisoners didn't do anything to deserve a death penalty, other than practice a religion.
As for HK dissidents, just being put away for life just for their political opinions is horrific enough.
I'm not pro-China in any way, but Falun Dafa is absolutely a cult. It's a religion in the same way Scientology is a religion. Have you actually read up on their beliefs and their leader? Does this sound like a legitimate religion?In a much-circulated interview with Time magazine in 1999, Li talked about Falun Gong followers having the power to levitate, and spoke at length about an extraterrestrial invasion. “Since the beginning of this century, aliens have begun to invade the human mind and its ideology and culture,” Li said. When the interviewer asked him if he was a human being, Li’s response was intentionally enigmatic: “You can think of me as a human being.”
I personally know the girl on the top of this page. We were friends back in high school. I'm not going to go into details about her life, but it's a damn shame that she and her family got roped into this stuff.
You have to be careful comparing anything to Scientology. Scientology is absolutely criminal and has been convicted in an Ontario court of crime.
1. They coerce staff members to have abortions so they can be committed to their work.
2. They send private detectives after critics and harass them at their own homes.
3. They send false claims to employers of critics, "Did you know that your employee is a pedophile?"
4. They drain the bank accounts of their followers and run their debt up to the maximum.
5. They force followers to disconnect from family who do not believe in the cult teachings.
Having space alien back story is not what makes Scientology dangerous, and any reference to the same in Falun Dafa is not what makes it a cult. Cults force their followers to shun (disconnect from) those who leave the cult. Does that happen in Falun Dafa?
