    Why is Falun Gong so demonized in China?---they seem harmless here in the USA

    I don't know much about Falun Gong but they seem harmless to me. I'm not aware of them causing serious problems here in the USA.  However, they are villified and demonized in China.  Does Falun Gong behave differently in China than they do here in the USA?  I am not afraid of Falun Gong members whatsoever---no more so than I am of those who practice Tai Chi or Yoga---am I missing something?

    I believe the Falun Gong are victimized in China because of their beliefs.  Members follow the tenets of Falun Gong faithfully.  When it comes in conflict with the "Party Line", the members remain true to their way of life (Falun Gong).  In my mind, it is a religious persecution to attempt to bring all members back to a "Party" way of life.
