WATCH: These Chinese dissidents risked their lives for fellow Christians

Bob and Heidi Fu fled China when Heidi became pregnant without proper permission from the government, and they have actively spoken out about human rights abuses in China since coming to America. During an appearance on The Glenn Beck Program, the couple discussed the struggles they experienced to protect not only themselves, but fellow Christians from persecution.

When their home was raised by Chinese officials, Heidi was able to hide a small address book filled with the names and contact information of fellow Christians who attended their house church. She held the book during the search, and was able to hide it in a pile of clothes only after grabbing a jacket from her closet. She was then taken from her home.

They were imprisoned for unlawful religious activity for two months and placed in separate cells.

While the couple has actively spoken out against Chinese human rights abuses, they characterize the White House’s treatment of China as one of appeasement.

    Adam Smith’s study of moral standards led him to realize that human beings had stumbled upon impersonal ways of cooperating that enabled us to transcend the traditional limits of our own individual knowledge.

    American progressives would love to place the restrictions on people in general and Christians in particular, with such Chinese style Communism.

    Don’t worry too much because China is going to have major muslim problems real soon and will wish the muslims were as peaceful as the Christians.

    Liberty and the pursuit of happiness are why many dissidents from around the world still long for American shore’s. Little do these unsuspecting souls understand, that America isn’t the same place it used to be. Freedom of speech, is frowned upon in more and more places, one can only wonder, will a China-like system of government take root here…we are still the home of the brave….right?

    This is coming to this country mark my words the green movement and the Abortion movement will love to put on a limit on how many children we can have. Do not be fooled by the world’s view on life for it is a lie. Life starts after conception. People pushing for this are earth worshipers.

      Really enjoyed this video clip. Right on the money!

        You should watch his other ones. The out of all of them only one I disagree with.

      If you really believe that, why don’t you practice what you preach?
      Why do you celebrate birthdays instead of conception days?

        Just because you can’t see a person doesn’t mean they are not human. When a child is concieved it is a private matter when a child is born it a public matter and a celebration time.

      • Sam Fisher

        Why is it hard for you liberals to understand killing children because you are lazy is wrong?

    Glenn, I see you added a new feature – top commenters on your site, with twitter follows attached. Here you go again, Beck, thinking outside the box. You never cease to amaze. Well done!

    Here we go again…RELIGION, a necessary evil on this earth. How many wars and how many millions of lives has religion cost humanity? How many people can this earth support? THAT is the biggest question facing all of us. The problem as I see it is that governments are meddling into religion, rather than honestly governing their people. In the end, governments themselves become a “religion”.

      Many scientist are saying we need to expand out into the universe but I feel that will not be needed. Study astronomy it is a miracle that we had not yet had a giant space rock smash into a major city yet.

    • Jared Walgren

      No. The question is how many people have died because people have perverted religion.

    For a guy who CLAIMS to be Christian (Yeah, right!) isn’t Obama a coward for refusing to insist their practice of “Euthanasia of Youth in Asia” be halted at once?

  • Eatie Gourmet

    Was their house “raised”? Or “razed”? Or perhaps “raided”?
    What do you mean here? Words mean things. (Otherwise I could’ve just said ‘words man thins.’)
    Sorry, but I couldn’t get past the second paragraph.
