The First Chinese American

Hong Kong University Press

In the 1880s, there was a noteworthy change in Wong’s thinking about religion. In some of his early articles, he cautiously voiced his opinions without damning Christianity and its followers. Probably out of a lack of progress in altering Christian minds, Wong launched a frontal attack on Christianity and Christendom by having his contentious essay published in an influential American magazine. His article then sparked off vehement opposition from myriads of quarters.
