Falun Gong also known as Falun Dafa led by Chinese exile Li
Hongzhi has been labelled an 'evil cult' in China and it seems others
are concerned that his teachings are racist and homophobic.
interest to Intermix.org.uk is the news that Li teaches his followers
that 'mixed-race people…[are] instruments of an alien plot to
destroy humanity’s link to heaven.” And that these interracial
unions are somehow part of “a plot by…evil extraterrestrials.'
There have been lots of different views about
whether Falun Gong is an 'evil cult' or is being hounded by communist
propaganda. However followers do seem to accept that his statements about
mixed-race people are part of his philosophy.
One Falun Gong follower says that there is a logical
explanation for Li Hongzhi's view of mixed-race people.
'My understanding is that when gods created man, we were created to gods
image, different races was created by gods of different races and when
a child is born from a marriage of two people from different races it
will be hard for the gods to trace the child’s origin and therefore
hard to save. To which god’s paradise will he be saved? But there
are many mixed marriages between practitioners in the west and it is
not viewed as something bad.'
Sounds to us like Li's been living on another planet himself.
