HOW CAN THE canonization of Chinese martyrs foster hatred?

The fact that there were martyrs willing to die for God in a country under an evil system like communism is a tribute to the love the Chinese martyrs had for God. Maximilian Kolbe also gave his life for God during the cruelty of Hitler's Third Reich.

Martyrdom in any country inspires the people of God to keep on fighting for what is truthful and just. Of course, the communists who have yet to accept the Vatican's authority are against it, as it might mean that more people might convert to Catholicism. That is their fear. It's as simple as that.
