Zhao XiaoZhao Xiao–Though the communiqué drafted in the Third Plenary Session of the Eleventh Central Committee is around twenty thousand words and covers a variety of topics, it does not mention religious reforms. Religions cannot prosper without an open policy that encourages religious diversity. Culture and ethics can never prosper where religion isn’t allowed to prosper. I think the fact that it doesn’t mention religion is the greatest omission of the communiqué. Could it be that the communiqué is referring to religion when it encourages China “to actively absorb excellent foreign cultural achievements?” (Posted Nov. 17, 2013)
