Too strange for words…

A Student Press column in Hong Kong has caused calls for the Bible to be listed as “indecent” material and be made only available to people over the age of 18. From an an article in The Register:

The Bible may be reclassified as “indecent” in Hong Kong due to its “sexual and violent content”, Reuters reports.

That’s if the 800 or so residents who’ve demanded it be restricted to over-18s get their way, following an unholy rumpus over a sex column recently published in the Chinese University’s Student Press magazine which asked readers “whether they’d ever fantasised about incest or bestiality”.

It really makes you wonder… if the Bible is deemed threatening, have these people read the other religions’ holy books?

The full article and details are available in The Register.
