"People have fabricated and spread rumours about the 'end of the world', caused trouble by tricking people out of money, and disturbed social order," the report cited police in the southwestern megacity of Chongqing as saying.
The group has called on its members to overthrow China's ruling Communist Party, which it refers to as "the big red dragon", and tells believers that a new era, presided over by a "female Jesus", has arrived.

You know, if the power trippers in Beijing gave it less than 7 days to wait? This whole thing would solve itself without the need for the State to come in and stomp people into roadkill. China has a way of being about as subtle as a case of the clap.
The group was founded in 1989 in Heilongjiang Province by Zhao Weishan. They believe that God has returned to earth as a woman, "born to an ordinary family in the Northern part of China" to guide mankind for the third and last time. According to the group, the first and second times of active guidance of mankind were as Jehovah of the Old Testament and as Jesus in the New Testament. The group teaches that a woman self-styled "Lightning Deng", from Zhengzhou, Henan is the second Christ.
Her most widely distributed book, Lightning from the Orient is the Word of God. The book claimed the first coming of Christ was to redeem humanity, while the second is to conquer men's hearts and defeat Satan. Those who do not accept her words would die a terrible death or receive severe punishment.

Sounds like a Christian cult who have chaned the original teachings to suit their BS agenda or the Chinese are covering their behinds because they knocked a few of them off during the crackdown. Oh well, idiots will be idiots.

I clicked on this one thinking it was another.
This is sad. People can't talk about what they want?
I'm glad I don't live there.
