According to a number of reports, including several posted on Pajamas Media, a noted blog repository, the Red Chinese government* will not allow Olympic athletes to bring their bibles with them into the Olympic Village during the games next year, citing security reasons.
Your blogger is already on record as opposing any US involvement in those games, due to the huge number of human rights abuses that occur there, among other issues.
According to Pajamas Media,
"The news came out quietly a few days ago in an Italian sports newspaper, then picked up by the Catholic News Service. Organizers of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing announced a list of “prohibited objects” in the Olympic village where athletes will stay, citing security reasons. Among them - the Bible.
"If true, it breaches earlier promises from the Chinese government to 'offer religious services' on the level of any previous Games. Virtually ignored by the mainstream media for several days, several bloggers took notice..."
For More Information:
*Red was a term used to describe Communism and Communists in the early 20th century. "Red Chinese" was used by many in the mainstream media to describe the Chinese government that was taken over by Communist forces. This term, though out of vogue, is popular with writers, editors, and family members at Katy's Conservative Corner and will never go out of style here.
Your blogger can never say enough negative things to highlight what is wrong with Communists and the states they run. In fact, she wishes that all Communists in the United States would "defect" to the nearest Communist country and see how they like that.
Due to the banning of Bibles in the China Olympics, KCC will no longer refer to the host city as Beijing. Rather, she will return to the former English term of Peking. Don't be shocked when you read more about the "Peking Olympics".
