    Christians attend a Sunday service at Shouwang Church in Beijing's Haidian district, in this October 3, 2010 file photo. Seventeen churches in China have appealed to China's lawmakers to provide legal protection of religious freedom after police detained dozens of Christians from the Beijing church that has been trying to hold outdoor services. The petition, delivered on May 11, 2011, by hand to the National People's Congress -- China's rubber-stamp parliament -- was the first of its kind and the boldest statement by the nation's "house churches" to the central government.
