- De-register all currently existing religious organizations and require a costly re-registration.
- Require religious groups to have their religious writing and documents to be evaluated by the state.
- Ban all religious activity for non-registered groups.
- Impose censorship of religious literature.
- Restrict distribution of religious literature to religious buildings...
- But also require religious groups to obtain state approval to build or open religious buildings.
This unfolding event is a great example for us of how religious markets exist within legal and institutional settings and that the nature of religion in a religious market can change due to changes in that setting. This will be a recurring theme in our course.
