Anti-Christian Movement (China)
The Anti-Christian Movement (非基督教运动) was an intellectual and political movement in China in the 1920s. The May Fourth Movement for a New Culture attacked religion of all sorts, including Confucianism and Buddhism as well as Christianity, rejecting all as superstition. The various movements were also inspired by modernizing attitudes deriving from both nationalist and socialist ideologies, as well as feeding on older anti-Christian sentiment that was in large part due to repeated invasions of China by western countries.

Famous quotes containing the word movement:
“So close is the bond between man and woman that you can not raise one without lifting the other. The world can not move ahead without womans sharing in the movement, and to help give a right impetus to that movement is womans highest privilege.”
