The 1978 Constitution of the People's Republic of China guarantees freedom of religion with a number of restrictions.

 

1978

 

The constitution of 1982 reaffirmes this guarantee of freedom of religious worship as well as the "freedom not to believe in any religion" and affirms that "religious bodies and religious affairs are not subject to any foreign domination." While the constitution provides for freedom of religious belief, the Government seeks to restrict religious practice to government-sanctioned organizations and registered places of worship. The Government tries to control and regulate religious groups to prevent the rise of groups that could destablize the political order.
