Late Pro-CCP Hong Kong Bishop Michael Yeung Supported National Anthem Law. By Chapman Chen, HKBNews
Late Bishop Michael YEUNG Ming-cheung 楊鳴章 (1945-2019), Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong, is regarded by many Hongkongers as a pro-Communist China priest because of his controversial sayings and symbolism. He supported the enactment of the National Anthem Law in HK and the dismantling of crosses in China; he compared activists joining the Occupy Central Movement and homosexuals to drug addicts; he advised people against challenging China about the Tiananmen Square Massacre; he had close ties with HK Chief Executive Carrie Lam ; and his coat of arms is full of references to Red China.
Bishop Yeung said, "Adamant refusal to sing the CN national anthem goes against normalcy in society. would deny that they are Chinese." (Mingpao 2017-11-12) . "Forced dismantling of crosses in China may be for the sake of building safety," asserted Yeung (HKCNews 2017-8-2). Once, when asked what he would do if there were Catholics arrested for joining the Occupy Central Movement, Bishop Yeung replied that if his son were arrested for taking drugs, he would also try to help.

Yeung's “Red” Coat of Arms
Yeung's coat of arms incorporates the Great Wall, which is a symbol of the dictatorial empire of China, and a view of the Lion Rock of HK highlighting the Bank of China Tower, a symbol of Communist China's colonial presence in Hong Kong. So much the more, the Bible above Lion Rock is so conspicuously red that it reminds one of Chairman Mao's Little Red Book.
