Thou Shalt Not

No Bibles will be allowed into Beijing’s Olympic Village during next year’s Olympic Games, according to a story that seems to be have been first broken here by the Catholic News Service after first appearing in an Italian report last week.

A quick Google shows that no (zip, zero, nada) major news outlets have picked this up.

A few links to non-major outlets at Pajamas Media.

If this is true, if, then I think it’s pretty newsworthy. We’ll see.


  1. I don’t know how I would feel about this… not sure if is even that relevant… I doubt they would be that against it since they do have churches there now (I think).

  2. Christians have been duped into believing the only way to be a ‘good Christian’ is to be a pussy. Too bad more don’t read the Bible. Especially the Old Testament – my own personal favorite part. Lot’s of ass whoopings there. I read an interesting article regarding the communist’s infiltration into our government and how that effected our policy with China back when it counted. Hard to believe we didn’t listen to Chenault regarding Chang Kai Shek.

    Cybercast News Service: This policy of allowing communists into the Merchant Marine extended to the State Department? … Beyond espionage, stealing documents, the communists also had another aim in mind? M. Stanton Evans:‘It did, … and yes, they wanted to engage in espionage and got thousands of documents to the Soviets. … But they had another goal, and that was influencing policy … influence, guide, and direct policy from the United States favorable to the Soviet interest. … China was a good example, and before that, Yugoslavia.’ Cybercast News Service: Who was John Stewart Service and did he help steer U.S. policy favorably toward the Soviet Union? M. Stanton Evans: ‘Service was a U.S. diplomat serving in China in the 1940s, during World War II, and a little bit thereafter. … He was living in Chungking with not one, but two Soviet agents. … They were sending back dispatches basically saying we needed to get rid of Chaing-Kai-shek and embrace the communists.’ Cybercast News Service: So, before Joe McCarthy arrives on the scene, the government has actively recruited some communists – and some Soviet agents had infiltrated the U.S. government – to the point that it aids the aims of the Soviet Union? And then our views shifted towards the Soviet Union? M. Stanton Evans: ‘When World War II concluded, the Cold War started, and a lot of people who had been out there doing this stuff tried to backtrack and cover it up, and there was a lot of cover-up. … A case in point is J. Robert Oppenheimer, director of the Manhattan Project.’

  3. I don’t think this will stand. Notice no such restrictions on the Koran for example. I’ll predict that this will be blamed on some ‘low level’ offical shooting his mouth off. This is just a trial run to see how it plays.
