Atrocity of the Day: August 18

Olympicflagcuffs Before I list today's atrocity committed by the Chinese government, two things.

The purpose of this exercise over the past week and the remaining week of the Olympic season is not to show hatred -- and certainly not moral superiority. It's actually precisely an act of love for our neighbors, in this case, the Chinese citizens and those in Tibet and Darfur -- not to mention profound sadness over the grip evil has on the members of the communist government, which they act out in horrific ways against their own countrymen and others, rather than yearn for and support their progress and their good -- that inspires these "Atrocity of the Day" posts. We want to help tear away darkness by shining the light of truth in the forgotten corners of society.

Secondly, a more positive note on the issue: As Chuck mentioned Friday, President Bush has taken a clear stand for religious and political freedom, despite the Chinese government's dismay over his remarks. That's a step in the right direction.

Now, the atrocity we're highlighting today:

Continuing a deceptive image by allowing only state-sanctioned churches -- a facade of religious freedom that is false in every way.
