China confiscates Bibles from American Christians - Yahoo! News
Once again you're showing how shallow and ignorant you are if you don't see the problem with this.
I imagine your for enforcing the one-child rule, as well. I'll bet the abandoned babies and forced abortions are a source of great amusement for you.
There are some idiot christians out there. Take the franklin graham group. He leads the samaritans purse shoebox drive.. everyone gets there kicks donating gifts to kids for christmas.. thats all fine and dandy till I asked where they were going... the destination for these gifts where muslim countries... when I questioned one girl about that, she said even muslim kids need christmas presents...wtf.. when you accept jesus in your life are you turning your back on reason?
Once again this shows just how lucky people from foreign countries are coming to the US, and what they are allowed to do while 'guest's' in our country. The freedom's we have here are taken for granted way too often, by many, including Americans.
Yes it is a shame that the Bibles were taken away and I that they get them back. But the saying "When in Rome do as the Romans Do" works both ways.

I think it's even stupider that I'm so mistrusted in my own country that I can't even take a bottle of shampoo on an airplane.
Maybe you look like a terrorists. Who knows
Does not bother me one iota that I can not take certain things on airplanes. Who in the hell knows what you have in that bottle
If they did not set up rules like this 'some' people would be bitchin that they are doing nothing at all. Go figure!
Drive your car. Simple as that!
I'm not understanding...why wouldn't we give assistance to Muslims? We're supposed to reach out to those of other faiths. In fact, it's pretty much one of the defining characteristics of Christianity.
I believe I've sworn off flying for good. The big jets scare me. Oddly, I'm not so afraid in smaller planes, though I'm sure they're probably more dangerous. But at least in that situation you know the pilot. But you take the terrorism, the aging jet fleets, the number of flights and human error....I just can't handle it any more.
I've turned chicken. I guess if I ever go to Europe I'll have to take a boat.
I think this will be your best bet.
Unless they build a bridge ... but forget that! I live near San Francisco .... I do everything possible to stay off of those bridges .... because of the chance someone might be carrying shampoo in their car! who knows
And earthquakes too. Have been on the San Mateo bridge going to the San Francisco airport when a 'minor' earthquake started 'rolling the bridge' There were four of us in the car - we all looked at each other and said not one word - until we were off of the bridge!
