    Just out of curiousity, will the ban extend to the Koran?

    Oh, that's not going to fly at all... no way that holds up.

    This is a load of fucking shit. They have Christian churches over there. How the fuck would they ban the Bible?

    I call b.s. on this story.

    Agreed-I would also question the veracity of the story. The organizers would have to know something like this wouldn't fly.

    Yes. I should have added, "This story is completely and utterly full of shit at every single level."

    The story is certainly false. It is incorrect. I see people walking around with crosses around their neck all the time when I'm there. The churches exist. They don't have the congregation sizes, but they exist.

    A completely ridiculous story that is obviously false.

    A load of BS.
    Google the Italian paper they mention.
    In this shocking development, it doesn't exist.
    Must be the same publishers as Bill O'Reilly's Paris Business Review.

    Given the Chinese government's attitude toward human rights, they never should've been given the games in the first place.
    Chilling story in last week's Time about young, affluent Chinese urban dwellers who don't give a damn about democracy as long as they can keep their iPods, snowboards, fancy vacations, etc. And the Chinese leadership keeps them onboard by continuing to provide bread and circuses (one young woman's attempt to justify the Tiannemen Square massacre is really sickening).
    That story made me want to see Mao rise from the dead and organize the peasants.
