Are American Christians unwittingly paying for religious persecution in China? Absolutely, says Roger Robinson, former White House National Security Council (NSC) senior director for international economic affairs.
During a private briefing in Washington, D.C.—hosted by the Center for Security Policy (CSP)—Robinson said China is the single greatest existential threat to the U.S.
He also argues that because no one is keeping China accountable for its human-rights abuses, American shareholders are unknowingly fueling religious persecution.
“Here’s the problem: We in the room here are unwittingly paying for religious persecution in China because of our stock portfolios, our mutual funds, public pension systems, index funds, exchange and traded funds, IRAs—all the things that your faceless fund managers who don’t [care] about human rights and national security puts you in,” he says.
Robinson says there are about 800 Chinese companies in U.S. markets today, and not one of them was ever screened for religious persecution or human rights abuses.
“Not one Chinese company has ever been delisted from the United States for human rights or national security concerns in the history of our country,” he says. “Is that because nobody ever did anything wrong?
