No X Rating For the Bible

The Television and Licensing Authority (TELA)  in Hong Kong has declined to classify the Bible as an indecent publication. It has made this decision in the face of over 2,000 complaints.

The complaint were made to protest against an article in a student newpaper being labels indecent after it mentioned incest and bestiality. Some students set up a website which apparently cites biblical passages that allegedly have more sex and violence content than the offending article. I looked at the website, but it is all in Chinese, so I’ll just have to take the word of The Sunday Telelgraph. The website apparently also has a downloadable form to complain about the Bible to TELA.
