Update: Bibles in Beijing Olympics

Well, now the International Herald Tribune is reporting that China will allow folks to bring a Bible with them to the Olympics next year. Yes, one Bible.

A notice on the official Beijing Olympics Web site explaining entry procedures into the country said “each traveler is recommended to take no more than one Bible into China.”

Religious services — Christian, Catholic, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist — will be available to athletes in the Olympic Village next summer, Li said.

However, those policies do not apply to Falun Gong, reasserting China’s determination to marginalize, persecute and eradicate the spiritual movement.

Wow, how generous of The Authorities. We can bring ONE Bible to the Games.
