(Clearwisdom.net) I have come into contact with many men who are Falun Gong practitioners. Regardless of their profession or family background, I find that they share a lot of similarities. They are kind and compassionate people who are of high moral character. They do not drink, gamble or curse. They do not dally with prostitutes and are not greedy. I have found them to be gentlemen of the highest morality. I don't worry about anything at all when I am around them.

I also know well two women that have told me much the same thing.

Ruomei is a friend of mine who is quite pretty. After the persecution of Falun Gong began in 1999, her husband was arrested repeatedly for speaking up for Falun Gong. She and her child have endured a lot. Her male boss and acquaintances have made advances towards her, shamelessly trying to take advantage of the situation. In each case, she has told them that she was loyal to her husband and no matter how difficult things get, she will wait for her husband's return. She says that they are immoral thugs that could never compare with her husband, who is of the highest virtue.

Aying is a shy and introverted woman. Her husband was put into prison for practicing Falun Gong. Her child is young, and she doesn't have a job. In her time of need, many of her friends have stayed away from her out of fear of being accused of "guilt by association" by the CCP. Meanwhile, Falun Gong practitioners have stepped forward to help her, whether it's fixing things that are broken at her home or other difficulties. When asked by a CCP official why she continues to seek out practitioners, she replied that they are trustworthy and never bear ill intentions. She has experienced harassment like Ruomei has over the years, so that's why she relies upon Falun Gong practitioners so heavily.

Currently, Ruomei and Aying's husbands are being detained and tortured in the CCP's prisons and forced labor camps. Meanwhile, the corrupt officials that put them there are committing immoral acts day after day. In the summer of 2008, I came to know a party secretary who has directly participated in persecuting Falun Gong. During the past few years, he has abused his power to gain control of a local factory and get rich. This person is so eloquent and sanctimonious when giving speeches, yet he also loves to send unwanted, graphic messages to women on his cell phone. These are the kinds of people that are controlling the CCP and enforcing the persecution of Falun Gong. They claim to be helping "social stability", yet they are the ones actively putting the best parts of society in jail and contributing directly to society's moral decline.
