"Zhou Jinxia, who hails from the port city of Dalian in Liaoning province, tried to put up posters in a bid to "spread the gospel" to President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan. One placard read, "God, who loves the world, is calling Xi Jinping and Peng Liyuan".
"After her arrest, the police took her to a psychiatric unit for a check-up, but she denied having any form of mental illness.
"For years, Zhou had tried to petition the authorities to obtain justice after she was evicted from her home without compensation.
"After several failed attempts, she joined an underground Protestant house church and has tried in the past two years to spread the Gospel in order to change the "corrupt thoughts" of many people in China.
"Xi Jinping's anti-corruption campaign possibly led her to hope that the president would bring justice to her, in the name of freedom of religion.
"Before police took her away, Zhou said she was not worried about her fate. "I will accept whatever comes," she is quoted as saying..."
